- Size I, 5.5 mm crochet hook for bulky weight yarn, size H, 5.00 mm crochet hook for medium worsted weight yarn (about 4 oz of bulky weight and 3 oz of medium worsted weight for the adult size), I used Yarn Bee Andes Alpaca in “City Beat”. For the red headband I used 2 strands together of Yarn Bee Dazzling in “Royal Canon”
I also recommend Bernat Baby Softee Chunky yarn (bulky weight yarn) and Read Heart soft (medium worsted weight yarn). Both are very soft, comfortable and easy to work with.

Fasten off and weave in ends.
With the right side facing up, fold each end in half horizontally. Put those halves together by putting one side of the fold inside the other. See picture/video below how how to make the twist:
Cut a long piece of yarn and with your blunt needle weave in and out through all ends together. Fasten off and weave in ends.
Turn your piece inside out and you’re done!
Pin it for later!
