Crochet Twist Headband is a textured headband that will keep your ears extra warm. 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 the rest of the ear warmer is seamless.
This Crochet Headband is a beautiful crochet ear warmer to go with your Fall and Winter wardrobe and is very comfortable to wear.
For my headband I’ve used 50 g acrylic and a 4 mm hook.
I’ve used this yarn:
A very high quality yarn how comes in an enormous selection of colors. A really soft yarn with wonderful, airy volume.

Make sure that where you have a 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 desire 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 next 2 chains, make 3 loops in 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 video for 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.
