"Twisted Textures" Headband / Earwarmer | Free Crochet Pattern + Chart

The "Twisted Textures" Headband is a quick and quite easy twist headband pattern that you can crochet in less than one hour.

Crochet twist headbands are very popular at the time.
They are fashionable, quick to make, and require a very little amount of yarn.
All this makes them perfect for craft shows or last minute gifts and why not?.... a pretty accessory for yourself.

The twist gives the headband an extra charm.
The twist is actually the (only) seam of the headband and is quite easy to do; it’s all about how you fold the headband ends to sew them together.

SIZE:

Teen/ Adult women: approx. 4.33” by 20” ( 11 cm by 50.8 cm)

This headband is worked lengthwise, that means that the foundation chain will determine the circumference of the headband.

To resize the headband, add or subtract chains; your starting chain should be a multiple of 2 plus 1.

GAUGE:

For variegated headband worked in Hopscotch yarn: 12 hdc = 10 cm (4”)
For solid color headbands worked in Super Saver yarn: 13 hdc = 10 cm (4”)

The Hopscotch yarn is a bit thicker as the Super Saver yarn and it has more stretch.

MULTIPLE:

the multiple for the stitch pattern is 2; add 1 more for the foundation chain.

THE YARN:

The light variegated headband it’s made using 40 g of Red Heart Hopscotch yarn, Somersault colorway.
This is a heavier weight worsted acrylic yarn, very soft and warm!
I really love it! It is such a pleasure to work with it … and to wear the items made with it!:)

However the textured stitch pattern used stands out more on the solid color headbands.

For the solid color headbands I have used 40 g of Red Heart Super Saver yarn in colorways Charcoal and Light Blue. (yarn weight: Medium 4)

My favorite to wear is definitely the one made with Hopscotch yarn because of the way it feels. So soft and warm!

OTHER SUPPLIES:

  • 5.5 mm crochet hook (I have used Furls Wooden Hook, Cocobolo)
  • Tapestry needle
  • Scissors
  • STITCHES AND ABBREVIATIONS (US TERMS):

    • ch: chain
    • st: stitch
    • Sk: skip
    • hdc: half double crochet
    • dc: double crochet
    • RS: right side
    • WS: wrong side
    • back bump behind the chains

    Special stitches:

    bcr hdc: Back Crossed Half Double Crochet: sk 1 st, work 1 hdc into the next st, 1 hdc back into skipped st going behind the last hdc just made, so as not to catch it, inserting the hook from front to back of the work.

    As you can see, 1 bcr hdc will be made of 2 sts.

    NOTES:

    1. To prevent holes on the edge the rows worked with hdc & crossed hdc sts are started with ch1 instead of ch2 as usually used. Do not ch1 tight!

    2. ch1 at the beginning of hdc rows do not count as a stitch in the final stitch count.

    Sewing with the Twist (SEE PHOTO COLLAGE BELOW!):

    1. Lay the crochet piece flat with the RS facing.
    2. Bring short ends to the middle. (Now you'll be working on the wrong side of the crochet piece)
    3. Fold both ends in half and
    4. "sandwich" the 4 layers together as seen in the picture collage below.
    5. Thread the yarn end and sew along the edge going through all 4 layers. Turn and sew once more to secure.
    Cut yarn. Fasten off. Turn the headband to the right side.
    And you're done!

    2. Was wondering your thoughts on starting with foundation hdc instead of the chain? I have found that when I start something like this with a chain, the chain doesn't stretch like the last row. Maybe I just chain too tight.
