An Old Favorite Twisted Headband

When you purchase through links on my site, I may earn an affiliate commission. Here’s how it works.

An Old Favorite Twisted Headband is crocheted with Bulky Weight Yarn [5] and a 7 mm hook. You may remember this pretty stitch pattern from when I used it last year in two other free crochet patterns featuring the Lemon Peel Stitch.

The lemon peel stitch is a very easy stitch to crochet. It is created by alternating single crochet (sc) and double crochet (dc) stitches across every other row. It creates an interesting fabric that is sturdy and warm and pretty to look at.

The lemon peel stitch is also commonly known as the griddle stitch. If you like making hats crocheted from the top-down, my Lilian Hat Pattern uses the lemon peel stitch and is available in 11 different sizes, from Preemie all the way to adult large. The Lilian hat is crocheted with Medium Weight Yarn [4] and a 5.5 mm (I) hook. You will find the free pattern for the Lilian Hat here.

King Cole yarn is available from your local yarn shop, or online at the links in my post below.

The cake yarn I used for this project was given to me by King Cole. It has a lovely neutral base with flecks of rainbow color. It is soft and warm and I love how the little blips of bright red, yellow and blue pop in and out of the finished stitches.

There are a few different shades available in this pretty cake yarn: Jelly Bean (4165), Red Velvet (4167), Pistachio (4166), Sugar Plum (4164), Liquorice (4163), Toffee (4162), Raspberry Ripple (4161) and Marshmallow (4160). You can see all the yarn colors currently available here.

Notes:

  • Multiple of 2 (Understanding Stitch Multiples)
  • Stitch Name: Griddle Stitch aka Lemon Peel Stitch and the Soft Moss Stitch
  • When I work into the foundation chain, I prefer working into the back bar (back bump) of the chain. You can work under the back loop only if you prefer.
  • You may customize the headband height by working the repeat of R2 and R3 as many, or as few, times as you wish.

Finishing Instructions for All Twisted Headband Sizes

You have 2 options. You can make a twisted headband and close it up like this. Or, you can make this a flat seamed headband following the instructions below in Option 2.

Option 1: Twist-Front Ear-Warmer Seaming Technique Photo Tutorial

Option 2: Flat Seam Ear Warmer. Finish off leaving a 6-inch tail of yarn for seaming. On a flat surface, with the right sides facing, fold your project in half bringing the first and last rows together and lining up the stitches. Thread your yarn end on a yarn needle and work through both layers; whipstitch (view tutorial here) once for each stitch. Once you have finished seaming the twisted crochet ear warmer headband, weave in any remaining ends securely.

Weave in any remaining ends securely.
