Crochet Twisted HeadBand Tutorial: Made from Scratch

I’m really excited about today’s crochet twisted headband tutorial! No, not because crochet headbands are particularly special, but because this one is.

Before the days of Covid, I had gotten on a yarn tangent. Specifically handmade, hand spun yarn. I went kinda bananas and bought wool and a spindle and spun up a bunch of beautiful Merino Wool.

Then, recently, my husband went covid crafty crazy and started hand carving crochet hooks. So, I really wanted to make something with his hook and my home spun yarn. So, now you have a crochet twisted headband tutorial made with a handmade hook and homespun yarn from the knitcroaddict family! Super cool 😎 If you want to hear more about that, head over to at crafty corner.

This crochet twisted headband tutorial is super simple and beginner friendly. It won’t require a ton of yarn, or sizing adjustments. You can use you any hook size you like (you don’t even have to use a homemade crochet hook or homemade yarn).

There will be a video tutorial included as usual. If you like this headband project and are getting ready to go down the crochet rabbit hole, you might like these previous projects as well.

Stitches Used & Code

  • ch = chain
  • hdc = half double crochet

Notes :

  • The chains when you start will be the width of the headband. If you’d like a shorter or longer width, just make less or more chains
  • The rows that you made will be the circumference. If you’d like a smaller or bigger size, just make less or more rows

Crochet Twisted Headband Written Instructions

Row 1 : I’m making a 4 inch long ch, then make 1 hdc into second ch from hook and each ch across.

Row 2 : Turn, ch 1 ( do not count as a st ), 1 hdc into each st across

I’m going to repeat row 2 until my headband reaches about 19 inches long ( without stretch ). I recommend trying it on at this point to make sure you’re happy with the fit. Then we can start sewing. Cut the yarn and leave a 6 inch long tail

Step 1 : Lay Flat. Picture below
