Twisted Turban Headband Crochet Pattern

Although I don't wear them that often, I adore headbands!.. In all honesty though, I should probably make more of a conscious effort to remind myself of their lovely existence. I'm somewhat forgetful if you haven't realised that by now!
When you think about it, they're such a small item, but they can really tie an outfit together!
What's some of your favourite fashion accessories? Let me know in the comments, I'd love to discover some new trends!

What You'll Need
5.00mm Crochet Hook
50g 8ply Yarn
Tapestry/Wool Needle

Finished Size 
This headband fits all sizes
{Easily adjustable, as explained in pattern}

~ Note ~
{Chains at the start of a round count as the first Half Double Crochet of that round}

Taking your yarn and 5.00mm crochet hook, start of by making a Slip Knot, and then crocheting 8 Chains.
Row 1~ Chain 2. Crochet 1 Half Double Crochet into the fourth chain from your hook. Then crochet 1 Half Double Crochet into every chain across. You should have 8 half double crochets now.
Row 2 - 122~ Chain 2. Crochet 1 Half Double Crochet into every stitch all across. {Note: You can either add or take away a couple of extra rows depending on your head's circumference.}
Fasten off, and weave in loose ends.

Now, taking your crocheted strip, bring it up from the back of your head {Note: As if you were going to tie a bow on top of your head}, and twist it once before bringing the ends back down to the back of your head. You can find an easy video tutorial HERE.

Slowly take the twisted headband off your head. Now, taking the tapestry needle and yarn, sew both ends of the headband together. {Note: I also partially sewed the upper and lower part of the headband together.}
Fasten off, and weave in loose ends.

Hope you all enjoyed this pattern!

Have a lovely day crocheting,


  1. I love to crochet headbands. They're so simple and quick. This is a great pattern, thanks for sharing!

  2. Absolutely adorable, as are you!

  3. I can't even stand myself right now. You honestly make such beautiful patterns. My daughter is a dancer and I love to make little thank yous for her instructors, but hate making the same for all. Your patterns really touch on each individual style. I am going to be a loyal fan forever!!!

    1. Oh wow, thank you! Your comment just put the biggest smile on my face!
      I used to do ballet when I was younger, and good instructors always made it more fun.
      I'm sure they'll love your little gifts,

  4. I am working on this now and wondering if you single chained or slip-stitched the whole way around before twisting the strip around your head?

    1. I am pretty sure she did one of those to get the finished look.

  5. can you tell us your gauge and the length of your finished headband? i'm making it now for my son's GF and won't be able to measure. i thought i would make it large enough to fit me (large head) and put a couple buttons for closure and sizing. but, unsure. i'm using brett's marble chunky with an H (5 mm) hook.

  6. Will it work with 4ply cotton??

  7. It says chain 2 in the beginning does that mean start in second chain from hook or make two extra chains?
