WR - Do Rag contest

I don't expect everyone to participate, and doing it is half the fun. I do have a small mention of something similar in a book on Chinese costumes. I based it on something I saw in a movie only to find out later that I wasn't that far off. I have also found that they make great arming caps under helms, and for those of us light in the hair dept. on the top of our heads, they keep you from burning your head in the sun.
They are easily done and relatively inexpensive even with good quality fabric, taking only a little over, or right at 5/8ths of a yard.
Philippa says that we could have an unofficial display at the Regional A&S. If the Autocrat is willing? I will even find a neat prize for that. The two contest will be separate.
Besides that, Larkin, I did think it was a good way to get me lots of headrags and have some fun at the same time.

On second thought, are you SURE you want anyone to think about it? Heck
if everyone in the Western Region made one rag you'd have over a hunderd
rags at the total cost of one ounce of silver. Of course, not everyone is
going to make one for you. [Me for example.] But I will take a copy of
your pattern. Along with any documentation as to when/where they were
worn in period. Wouldn't want to run afoul of the authenticity police.
Larkin I will not purposly offend anyone in a public forum:
