This gorgeous TC twist headband has great texture and a front knot twist that looks difficult but is so easy! This will be you’re new favorite headband!
You can use bulky weight or medium worsted weight yarn (pattern is written for both yarn weights). Measures approx. 5.5″ in width.
If you would like to purchase the ad free PDF download version of this pattern you can do so in my Etsy shop.
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.
