You'll need 7/8 yard stretch knit fabric. Before you can start cutting, pre wash the fabric. 
(You can make 3 to 4 turbans and or caps with 7/8 yard.)
Four Hats
small 11"w X 30"h
medium 12"w X 30"h
large 13"w X 30"h
TAB (all sizes) 4"w X 5"h
1/2" seam allowance included
Fold fabric in half against the grain with RIGHT sides together.
See CHARTfor the correct size. 
Pattern Layouts
With the TURBAN fold RIGHT sides together, sew* side edges. 
Be sure to leave 1/2" opening for TAB.
This is a good time to try the TURBAN on... be sure it's not too big...
increase the seam allowance to correct fit.
Fold TAB in half lengthwise, with RIGHT sides together. 
Sew the seam.
Turn TAB RIGHT side out, bring seam to center on UNDERSIDE.
(*... I like sewing the edges better then serging... it's easier to fold the TURBAN front and back.)
