Crochet Delicate Twist Headband Free Pattern
Hi everyone, this week I am bringing to you the Crochet Delicate Twist Headband Free Pattern. This is a great project for beginners. This lovely and delicate twist headband is very pretty and is easy to crochet. It looks lovely on, and because the yarn contains wool, it is perfect for the colder weather. The yarn however is fine enough to give this Winter headband a very feminine vibe.
The video tutorial for this project can be found here:
Crochet Delicate Twist Headband Free Pattern: The Inspiration
This delicate twist headband is very dainty. It is crocheted using a knit look stitch that I absolutely love. I used this stitch for different projects in the past, such as this easy man scarf. This stitch was also featured for another headband that I made two years ago. I love this stitch as it is easy and instantly elevates any crochet project.
If you enjoy Winter headbands, don’t forget to check out this easy and stylish headband I created just last month. This lilac headband is super pretty, and is original with it’s hat like inspiration. These different headbands are perfect for the Winter time if you have long hair like me that you like to tie up. A simple headband is therefore perfect to keep you warm whilst still looking very stylish.
The Snow Princess Hat is also great for the Winter months, and offers more coverage also. All these options are perfect for the colder months, and also make perfect Christmas gifts too. Another wonderful Winter option to keep your head warm is to crochet this elegant French beret.
Crochet Delicate Twist Headband Free Pattern: The Yarn
The yarn I used for this delicate twist headband is Drops Air. This yarn is an absolute dream! It is soft and beautiful, and is a delight to crochet with. It is composed of 65% alpaca, 28% polyamide, and 7% wool. This yarn is very warm without being bulky, which I love! It offers a lot of elegant possibilities for the Winter months whilst still being a fine and delicate yarn.
I love using wooly yarns in Winter. A few weeks ago I crocheted The Rose Petal Shawl with one of my favorite Winter yarns, Rico Designs Creative Wool Degrade. This is a perfect accessory for the colder months too, as it is so warm and cozy!
This yarn is considered a Medium 4 yarn, also known as Aran weight yarn. It looks beautiful and is not too thick, perfect for those feminine Winter projects. I love this yarn so much!
This was my first time using Drops Air yarn, and I really enjoyed it! I will definitely be using this yarn again in the near future. Indeed, I am thinking of crocheting a sweater with this warm and fuzzy yarn. Let me know in the comments what you think of this idea!

I will be using US terms (British terms in brackets)
4 in (10 cm) = 14 stitches
4 in (10 cm) = 13 rows
Gauge is not crucial for completion of this project
Size of finished project before sewing
5,5” x 17” (14 cm x 43 cm)
1 skein of Drops Air in color 8, or any Aran/Medium 4 yarn of your preference
A 5 mm crochet hook
A pair of scissors
A tapestry needle
Sl st: slip stitch
HDC: Half Double Crochet (UK Half Treble Crochet)
EOR: end of row
To start, make a slip knot.
Row 1: HDC in 3rd chain from the hook, HDC into each ch until end of row (first ch 2 counts as a HDC).
Row 2: Ch 1 (=turning chain throughout), turn your work, HDC into front facing loop of the bottom of each HDC from previous row (see photo below for more details) until eor.
Row 3: Ch 1, turn your work, HDC into the back loop only of each HDC until eor (see photo below).
Rows 4- : Alternate rows 2 and 3.
Fasten off, leaving long tail to sew both ends of project to create ear warmer.
Sew your headband together
Place your project flat with the right side facing you (the knit stitch), and fold in two lengthwise (see photo below).
Make sure project is neatly folded, then fold the two sides of your project to create a centre fold.
Take one side and twist it so that it creates a twist on one side.
Once this is done, take both sides and place them facing you, and slide each side into the opposite side.
You now have four layers to stitch together.
With tapestry needle and loose end, sew these layers together securely. You can sew this seam in twice if you wish (I did).
Create a knot once you have finished seaming the project, fasten off and tidy up all loose ends.
