Commentary:

over the turban
  Thus, some say that either one thread went over the turban, or the cap went over the turban (see note on Exodus 28:37). Or, 'to place it near the turban, which is above it (Targum Yonathan).

was thus completed
  This was on 25 Kislev, which would later be the first day of Chanukah (BeMidbar Rabbah 13:2; Chizzkuni). Nevertheless, the Tabernacle was not erected until 1 Nissan (see Exodus 40:2).
