Golden Fave Twist Headband – Free Crochet Pattern

Easy Crochet free pattern headband

Ever since I made the Knit Half Fisherman’s Rib Headband, I have had several requests to make a crochet headband.  Initially I planned to share this headband along with ANOTHER headband.  Yes, I was going to hit you with TWO pretty headbands! Alas, the other one was a failure.  I almost took a picture to show you how pretty it was, but it just didn’t fit right. I’m going to use the stitch pattern for something else, so I will hold off on posting a picture for now. 😉  So here’s the headband that worked out well and it’s done in my current favorite crochet stitch right now the moss stitch ( Same stitch used for this and this ). I’m really loving this headband (it might be a fave) and the color goes with so many different outfits.  These are great to wear because they hide messy hair and keep you cozy at the same time!

Easy Crochet Twist Headband

You will need:
Size H Crochet Hook
Lion Brand Yarn Vanna’s Choice in Golden Rod or Comparable Worsted Weight Yarn
Tapestry Needle to weave in ends

If you are a total beginner, you can certainly just single crochet this entire headband. You will get a similar look!  Chain 15 and single crochet each row until you have the length you need to fit your head nicely.
You need to know how to single crochet and chain stitch for this pattern.
You are essentially crocheting a big long rectangle that you will then twist and seam together.
If you need more help, see my post here where I included a link to a video tutorial on how to work this stitch.
Initial Chain Easy Twist Headband
There’s the initial chain. This is how wide the headband will be. Now you will work the crochet pattern until you reach the length that fits around your head. EASY PEASY!!

The fabric is reversible making it perfect for this “twist” headband. Just fold it over as pictured.

Chain 15
Row 1 Single crochet across, ch 1, turn
Row 2 sc in first stitch, *ch 1, sk st, sc in next stitch*, repeat from * to *, sc in last stitch, chain 1, turn
Row 3 sc in first stitch, *ch 1, sk stitch, sc in next ch stitch*, repeat from * to *, sc in last stitch, chain 1, turn
Row 4 – until piece measures 21 inches in length OR long enough to fit snuggly around your head – repeat row 3
Once piece reaches desired length, you will then single crochet around entire piece.
Holding your long rectangular piece, twist it once and join ends.  Seam ends together with your preferred method. A whip stitch is just fine.  Weave in your ends.
That’s all there is to it!

Now leave that house with your messy hair, it’s all hidden underneath that cool headband. 😉

Tracks in Snow
What’s the weather like where you are? I like this picture because it shows some animal tracks I found that have been covered up by blowing snow. COLD, but pretty. 🙂
Hope you’ve enjoyed!

  1. North of chicago is very bitterly cold..was -5 this morning and a high of oh 10….blew the seat heater in the car few Mos bk…I hate leather seats wo a warmer…can’t seem to get warm…blah…

    1. -5 is bitter cold indeed. That is SOOO COLD.

      Oh my goodness…I know! The leather seats in my car just FREEZE me every time I get in this time of year. Hope it warms up a bit for you soon. We are supposed to have some flurries tomorrow, but nothing bad.

  2. Hola! Acá el clima está bien. Frio para el estándar de California, pero sin quejas después de leer tu blog. Saludos y gracias por el patrón.

    1. Hi Robbin,

      Hmmm.. Sorry for the frustration! I wonder what could have happened. Did you watch the video on how to do the stitch? Sometimes people forget to make the single crochet in the last stitch rather than a chain and sc, which would make it wider. I hope maybe this helps!

    This is such a great pattern, thanks for putting up in your blog. My daughter and her husband live in Wisconsin and it’s definitely Cold there this time of the year.
    I think that I’ll make a couple for them. Nothing says that a guy can’t wear one.

    1. You’re welcome and you’re right! Nothing says that a guy can’t wear one. 😉 I’m so glad you like the pattern. I would imagine it is cold indeed in Wisconsin this time of year. How nice of you to think of making your daughter and son in law something to keep them warm.

  4. Thank you so VERY much for making your “Golden Fave Twist Headband” pattern for crochet. It is so cute and stylish. I am making it this week using reflective yarn so I can wear it to walk and be safe! I can’t wait to finish it!

  5. Love the crochet headband pattern & the color you chose to hook it with. Your pictures I have to say are incredible! It has been gray and rainy where I live for the past few days, your pictures are a welcome relief : )

  6. I’m going to make some maybe three for my granddaughters & a GREATone couldn’t print it so wrote it on my pad I made the Vinage tie one & se loved it Keep up the lovely work !!! NaNa

  7. Do you need to skip a stirch after you chain one? Because it I do it the way the pattern says it keeps getting wider and wider. It keeps doubles every stitch.

  8. When I started to make this it was curving instead of staying straight. Any suggestions?

    Thank you!

    1. Hi Anabelle,

      Hmmm, I really don’t know what might be causing it to curve. It should be a flat piece. Are you making sure to skip the stitch below and you’re making your ch. stitch after your single crochet stitches? I’m just wondering if there could be some decreasing happening that’s causing it to curve. Maybe someone else that comes by the blog might have an idea. Sorry I’m not more of a help with this!

  9. Hi Jessica, I read the comments and I was having the same issue. So, I followed the link to the next pattern and to the video and watched it, and you do indeed skip a stitch, but your written pattern does not say to skip a stitch. Maybe you need to re-read your pattern and fix the mistake… I do love the look of it and will be trying it out with skipping the chain as the video says.
    Happy crocheting!

    1. Thanks for the great suggestion Jessica! Although I have a link to the tutorial, I want the written pattern to be crystal clear and I didn’t include the “skip stitch” in the pattern. I assumed that folks would know when I say to sc into chain below it would make sense. But this is so much better and will hopefully be a help to others. I’ve corrected the pattern above. Thanks again and have a great night!

  10. Hi – So, for Row 3 of Golden Fave Twist Headband, should the repeat be *ch1, Sk Stitch, sc in next ch space* (rather than sc in next ch Stitch)? I just watched the tutorial for the Linen Stitch link provided on your site and that seems to be the pattern demonstrated. Thanks

  11. Would you recommend using the faux fur yard for this headband. I love the look of the twisted faux fur but I am a beginner and the pattern is a little scary for me.
