Crochet Twisted Head Band


Welcome back to The Crochet Crowd as well as my friends over yarnspirations.com. I’m your host Mikey. Today we’re gonna do the Twisted Step-sister Headband and what you have here is a permanent twist in this. It’s not exactly how you would think it is. It took me a little bit to understand these instructions. So I’m gonna show you the basics on how to do this. I don’t need to do a whole headband I just need to explain it, I’ll get you started and then we’ll learn how to do the twist and then keep on going and then you’ll finish it off on your own. So I’m going to be using the Bernat Roving that is suggested in this video here and I have this left over from another project. You don’t need too much yarn to make this project. You’re gonna need a 6.5 mm, size ‘K’ crochet hook in order to play today and let’s get started. There are two versions in this particular pattern. Version one is more narrow and version two is bigger. So what I’m going to do is just version one. You can just substitute the information I’m about to share with you. You’re going to create a slipknot and you wanna chain a total of 12. So just put that onto the hook remember the this one never counts as one. So 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9. 10, 11 and 12. So there is your length. So what we want to do now is row number one and we’re gonna go one double crochet fourth chain from the hook. So just count it back so 1, 2 3 and 4 turn it over get the back a hump of that chain and just double crochet into that one and I want you to double crochet in each one of the chains all the way back to the other side. So please do that now put me on pause and I will see you there in just a moment. So I’m coming into the very last chain and so you want to just simply turn your work and you’re going to chain a total of three and that counts as a double crochet here and throughout and you’re just gonna advance to the next one and double crochet across. You wanna go back and forth like this until you get to 10″. So approximately 10″ if it’s ten and a quarter no big deal. Just get to ten and then what we’re going to do is that I’m gonna show you how to do that twisting at that point. So just continue to go and forth, put me on pause now get your 10″ done and then meet me back here and I’ll show you what to do next. So once you get your 10″ done, obviously, it’ll be bigger. But this is how it’s done. So you’re going to chain a total of three and that counts as a double crochet and you’re going to double crochet in the next four stitches. So just only four. So 1, 2, 3 and 4. So the chain three plus the four gives you a total five. You’re going to turn your work just like that and you’re going to chain up three and then you’re going to double crochet in the next four. So 1, 2, 3 don’t forget that turning chain that is your 4th and then that’s it. So what you wanna do is you wanna fasten this off. So just taking your scissors and just fasten that off. I know it’s not what you’re expecting and then just weave in this end if you wanna use a tapestry needle it may be better. So you’re just gonna weave this in and what you’re going to do then is that you are gonna go to the first piece that you had, sorry, the first section. So when we started this we started and we immediately went and we did a chain three and we went this way. So when we go to start we wanna start right here so that it keeps it looking consistent. So let’s begin the next section. So we finished off and we’ve chained up three we went this way. So the first one we have to start with is right here. So let’s just create a slipknot to begin and we’re gonna also do two rows of just a small section. So you’re just gonna insert in just put it over for a slip stitch and then chain three counts as a double crochet and then lay down the straggler on top of the line and double crochet the next four and that’s all you have left anyway. So 1, 2, 3 and 4. Turn your work and then chain up three and then double crochet in the next four. But do, do not fasten off. We’re gonna keep on going with this strand. I know it’s gonna look weird but in actual fact, this is where the criss crossing is going to happen. So to criss cross and to start the next section of this project you are simply going to turn your work and I want you to cross these over. Okay, so we’re gonna start up and you don’t have to cross it right away if you don’t want to so you’re gonna chain up three. Okay, and it counts as a double crochet and and double crochet the next four and you’re gonna continue. So what you’re going to do is just cross them over, you can come in from the behind if you wish and you’re gonna get the next five that are on this section over here. So you’re just gonna carry on and keep on going. So double crochet the next five. So 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5. So now the twist is completely in position. So now you’re just gonna turn your work and you’re gonna work your way across. So when you work your way across make sure that you’re not twisting in any weird way. So you’re going to chain three and you’re gonna double crochet in each one of these stitches going across. So the first time when you go in this particular one right now is that you just wanna make sure that you do it right and therefore it’s just gonna be easier for the next rows. So you just keep on going, just double crochet over and therefore your twist is completely in. So you just have to go back and forth till the whole thing measures a total of 22″. So you will have had 10″ before this, you have this and now you have, um, you just have to keep on going so that the whole thing is about 22″. And then once you’re satisfied with that, what you can just do is that you just can put it together with the tapestry needle. So you just a trim your yarn down you wanna keep that same strand and just throw it through a tapestry needle. And all you’re just going to do is join the two ends together. So you just come across you can just whip stitch it so just match the stitches to each other as you go across. So just advance to the next stitch and essentially you’re putting the two sides together. So this is a really neat idea. Actually I kind of expected this is that you were doing a whole band and then when you went to do this part that you were gonna give it a twist. I didn’t realize that it’s kinda two sections that are permanently crossed over the top and it’s actually really neat because of that. Then it looks like probably a lot better than whether if you put a permanent twist in it. So the very front then once you get all your weaved ends in has this permanent twist, and I think it’s pretty awesome. So this is The Twisted Step stitcher, [chuckles] Step-sister Headband and just at the end just weave in your ends and everything would be good to go. So this is exactly how you would do it if you were to make one yourself. So have a great day, and it’s Mikey on behalf of Yarnspirations as well as thecrochetcrowd.com. We’ll see you again real soon. Bye, bye 👋
