Duo Blend Headband

The ‘Duo Blend Headband’ is a twisted headband available in 5 different sizes, incorporating a playful combination of 2 colors. It features a crochet stitch that resembles the knit stitch, creating a trendy aesthetic. Made with bulky yarn and a 10mm hook, it works up quickly, making it the perfect choice for a last-minute gift. Scroll down for my free pattern + video tutorial.

About the pattern

Crocheting this twisted headband is a breeze – simply create a flat rectangle, fold in half, and seam in a unique way to achieve a twisted effect.

Made using slip stitches in the back loop only, it mimics a knitted look, resulting in a simple yet stunning ribbed effect.

The yarn

For this twisted headband I used Durable Dare, a new, soft and chunky anti-pilling acrylic yarn available in 62 colors, ranging from lovely pastel shades to vibrant bold colors and delicate neutral tones.
