How to Crochet a Twisted Headband

A twisted crochet headband is made by crocheting rows, joining them together by twisting and then sewing the ends.

Once the ends are sewn shut, you can turn the headband inside out and a beautiful twisted headband is waiting!

The Yarn

To crochet this headband, you will want to use Color Made Easy by Lion Brand, which is a bulky 5 yarn made up of 100% acrylic.

Even though this is all acrylic yarn, I love that it is soft and works up beautifully in projects. I used the color Birch (white) for my headband, but you can pick from a range of twenty-four colors to suite your style.

I also love this yarn because it has a similar look and feel to the yarn I was obsessed with when I was first starting to crochet; Wool Spun yarn (now discontinued).

If you are familiar with my patterns, I always offer CME has a substitute for any of the Easy Crochet patterns that use Wool Spun. If you decide to give this yarn a try, you’ll see why I recommend it frequently.

Need a Substitute Yarn?

When making this twisted headband pattern, if you can’t find Color Made Easy to use, I would recommend Brava Bulky from WeCrochet / Knit Picks as a substitute.

This yarn crochets up very much the same as CME and is quite inexpensive.

The Stitches

If you love using easy & basic crochet stitches in projects, then you will love the ones used in this crochet headband!

The pattern starts with a row of half double crochets and then is followed by a row of single crochets worked in the front loop. (see picture to find out where the front loop of a stitch is)

The whole twist headband uses just the half double crochet stitch and single crochet stitch, which means it’s easy and fast to crochet!

If you’d like a refresher on each stitch I just mentioned, plus the chain stitch, take a look at the links below.

After you go over the stitches you’ll need to know and have the yarn you’ll be using in hand, then you are ready to get started on your new twisted crochet headband!

I hope you enjoy this design! Happy Crocheting!
