Divide all stitches in half. Fold the turban hat wrong side out and using three needles bind off method, join the crown.

      1. Align 2 parts, and pick up a third needle. Insert the third needle through the 1st stitch on the front needle and the 1st stitch on the back needle knitwise. Knit the stitch through both stitches.
      2. Repeat Step 1.
      3. Once you get 2 stitches on your RHN, bind off one stitch. With the help of LHN slip 1st stitch over the 2nd stitch on the RHN and drop it off the needle.
      4. Repeat Steps 2 and 3

Now it is time to use the tail we left at the beginning. Thread onto a blunt-ended tapestry needle and pick up the front loop of each selvage stitch along the edge. Pull tight to close the center. Weave in all ends.

Now it is time to decorate the turban hat.
