Crochet Easy Twist Headband

Hello everyone! This week I am bringing to you a brand new tutorial, on how to crochet the Easy Twist Headband. This easy and quick crochet project is perfect to gift to someone.

You can find the video tutorial for this project here: Crochet Easy Twist Headband Video Tutorial

This is such a quick crochet project to whip up. I made mine in less than an hour, and it came out beautiful. This project is also super feminine and high quality, due to the 100% merino yarn.

Crochet Easy Twist Headband: the yarn

This is such a quick and easy project

This quick crochet project is made with Stitch and Story 100% merino yarn. It’s called Lil’ Merino yarn, and comes in beautiful soft shades and hues. It is also super soft and feminine. I made one in a baby blue shade, and another in a soft pink. I love both equally! They look absolutely perfect with any outfit, and the fact they are 100% merino yarn make them look very high end.
It was the first time I used yarn by Stitch and Story, and I am not disappointed at all. It is absolutely lovely and high quality, and well worth the price. This project only necessitates a 50 gram ball of yarn, so it is quite economical.

This project matches any outfit

This crochet headband is made with a knit like stitch. Indeed, this pattern creates a tightly woven stitch, perfect for extra warmth. I also love the knit like look of this project, because it looks very neat and pretty.

Once the headband is created, we then seam it by creating a feminine and elegant twist at the front. I love the look of this knit stitch finished with this twist. It just adds so much elegance and daintiness to the project. It also adds a certain “je ne sais quoi” that elevates the whole look of this project.

Place your project flat with the right side facing you (the knit stitch), and fold in two lengthwise (see photo below)

Fold your project in two like so

Make sure project is neatly folded, then fold the two sides of your project to create a center fold.

Fold the project like this

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.

Sew this seam together

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.

Thank you so much for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed this tutorial,

Xoxo Selina.
