Handmade Holidays: Twisted Headband

We are over halfway through September. We have a few celebrations to get through before Christmas, but its always good to start making those little gifts early, right? It seems to me that these last few months of the year always fly by way to quickly.

So here is my first pattern of my Handmade Holidays series: The Twisted Headband.

It may look a little tricky, But I will do my best to lay it out for you. I promise it isn't too difficult, and it works up really quickly.

For simplicity sake, I split the headband into four sections, and drew a little diagram to help illustrate. It helps if you can imagine what to expect.

I am a beginner pattern creator. So if you have any questions about this pattern, please ask. I will be happy to help you with whatever I can.
I finished the pattern off by single crocheting around the edge.

Happy Autumn!

    1. Unfortunately I have no clue about button sizes. It was about the size of a quarter though! Hope that helps!

  2. Thank you for sharing the pattern, I just finished making mine and it looks lovely.

    1. That's so nice to hear! Thank you so much :)

  4. Do you have a gauge for this pattern? It seems the hook you used it quite small compared to the yarn. Maybe you crochet looser or tighter than me. I Love the pattern. I am going to make it today and send you a pic of the finish product. If you want one? Thank you for sharing.

    1. I am glad to here from you! I don't have a gauge for the pattern, but I could try to measure it out when I get home, and will let you know.
      Other people have been having problems with the size of the finished product, so I must crochet looser than others. What I have suggested to others is to make it bigger is repeat row 16 &17 on “Part One” a few more times and add the same number of rows in “part Four” between row 2 and 3. I hope that helps!
      I would love to see your finished outcome! You can email me at rebeccabeedesignsblog@gmail.com
      Please let me know if you have any other concerns! I will try to fix up that pattern soon :)

  5. Hi there!

    Quick question: do I work in the back loops when I turn? Or when I turn, would I then be working in the front loops (which would be the original back loops)?


    1. Hi there Laura!
      Keep working in the back loops to create the ribbing effect which will allow more stretch.

      Thanks for commenting!
