The Korean sauna towel hat

As I type this post, Liz and Orchid are in the skies and halfway to Seoul from Kuala Lumpur. I will be joining them tomorrow.

So today is preparation day and, passports and important travel items aside, I've been practicing folding the sauna towel hat made famous by the 2005 hallyu drama, My Lovely Kim Sam-soon.

How to fold the Lamb Towel/Potato Towel/Princess Leia Towel.

Step 1: Lay the towel flat.

Step 2: Fold the towel into thirds lengthwise.

Step 3: Roll the ends like you would roll the sleeves
of a long sleeved shirt.

Step 4: Roll ends until middle width fits the diameter of your head.

This diameter fits a very small head...

...a perfect fit for the grouchy family pet who wishes
Rooster would stop using her as a test subject.
