Crochet Twist Headband is a textured headband that will keep your ears extra warm, perfect to wear on cold winter days when you’d rather not wear those winter hats. I love how the twist on the front looks, this attractive twist is made by sewing the two edges together which is actually the seam.
This Crochet Headband is a beautiful crochet ear warmer to go with your Fall and Winter wardrobe and is very comfortable and cozy to wear and they are perfect to hide messy hair.
I know I’ll be making this piece over and over in so many different colors and I’m sure all of my friends will want one in their favorite color.
Sometimes I need something small to work on in between big projects and this crochet Twist headband is perfect if you need to take a break from your current project. For me to relax means to crochet something else! And even I always have two or three projects started, sometimes I just need something else to crochet.
The whole, turban, twist look for headbands and hats is still super popular this season. This is a beautiful version that you can whip out quite quickly!
The pattern has two of my favorite stitches: the Alpine stitch and the Star stitch, so before you start to crochet this headband make sure you know how to crochet these two stitches. And if you don’t know how to crochet them this pattern is perfect for you to learn new beautiful and textured stitches.
Here you can learn how to crochet (the written pattern, chart, and the video tutorial) these two stitches: the Alpine stitches
and the star stitch.
For crochet Twist Headband you will need:
For my headband, I’ve used 50g antipilling acrylic (100g= 250 m/ 3.53 oz=273 yards) and a 4 mm hook, this is the yarn I’ve used for my Twist Headband:
This 100% Anti-pilling Acrylic is one of those wonderful types of yarn that is so easy to work with that it flies over the needle or hook. Is airy and has a lovely and light volume. It is produced from 100% anti-pilling acrylic of very high quality, light, and soft yarn that is comfortable to work with and wear on the body.
Items knitting with anti-pilling yarn are resilient against pilling and fuzz that can occur while using or washing. Since these are more durable as compared to other acrylic fibers, they wear down slower. They stay like they are on the first day for a long time. Additionally, they carry less static electricity. Anti-pilling yarns are machine washable and dryable.
The soft yarn is suitable for lots of creative, colorful projects. It definitely does not scratch and is therefore great to use for blankets, sweaters, hats, scarves, etc. The airy yarn will keep you warm and won’t get too heavy.
If you’re allergic to wool, or if you want to opt-out of animal fibers for other reasons, you can replace it with this 100% antibacterial acrylic for a soft and lovely result.

THE WRITTEN INSTRUCTIONS:
Start with 12 chains.
1. ROW 1: 2 CH (count as a dc); 1 DC IN 3RD CHAIN OF THE HOOK, CONTINUE WITH DC UNTIL THE END OF THE ROW.
2. ROW 2: 1 CH, SC IN EACH STITCH ( you should have 11 sc);
3. ROW 3: 2 CH, 1dc, 1 FPDC IN 3rd DC OF THE previous ROW ; 1 DC, *1 FPDC, 1 DC*; REPEAT *-*, 1 dc;
4. ROW 4: 1 CH, SC IN EACH STITCH OF PREVIOUS ROW (11 sc);
5. ROW 5: 2 CH; *1 FPDC, 1 dc*; REPEAT *-*;

7. ROW 7: 2 CH, 1dc, *1 FPDC, 1 DC*; REPEAT *-*, 1 dc;
8. Row 8: 1 CH, SC IN EACH STITCH OF PREVIOUS ROW (11 sc);
Make sure that where you have double crochet on the previous row to make a front post double crochet and where you have a front post double crochet you will make a double crochet.
Repeat the pattern from row 5 until you reach the desired dimension, in my case 50 cm.
After you finish the alpine stitch you continue crocheting in rounds:
Round 1: on the wrong side crochet a round of hdc, in corners crochet 3 hdc in one st;
Round 2: on the right side crochet the star stitch: ch 3, skip 1 ch and make 2 loops in the next 2 chains, make 3 loops in the next 3 stitches, yarn over and draw the yarn through all the 6 loops on the hook, ch 1; * make a loop through the eye formed by the ch, a loop through the back of the last loop of the previous star and 3 loops in the next 3 stitches, yarn over and draw the yarn through all the 6 loops on the hook, ch 1*; repeat *-*, and in the last stitch you made the last loop at the star make a hdc.
Round 3: on the wrong side crochet hdc, in corners crochet 3 hdc in one st;
End off yarn, leave a long tail for seaming.
SEAMING: Watch the video for a demonstration on how to seam the twist.
Lay fabric out flat with right side facing up. Fold one end in half and next, fold the other end in half. Slide the two folded ends together and even out the stitches. It should have four edges lined up. Using the long tail thread it on the yarn needle. Sew the four edges together, secure the knot, end off yarn, weave in ends. Turn fabric with right side out.
Here is a picture with this headband in my favorite color: turquoise.
