Fall is here and today I’d like to share a beautiful crochet pattern with you for a Twisted Herringbone Headband. Since it’s worked back and forth and it’s very easy to memorize, this free crochet pattern is a great weekend project to enjoy.
Crochet headbands are such an underrated accessory. They’re less bulky than hats but enough cozy for those colder days when you need some extra protection for your head and ears. I love adorable pieces like this that are also functional.
The Twisted Herringbone Headband uses basic single crochet stitches worked in a unique way and has a very elegant and chic twist in the middle. Ever since making The Herringbone Cowl I’ve been obsessed with the texture that the herringbone stitch creates. It also allows the colors in the yarn to come through and shine. If you’ve never tried herringbone crochet stitch or just plain enjoy them, you’ll really like this project!
For this pattern, I used Merino Extra Fine Yarn from DROPS. This yarn is a #3 light, 100% super wash extra fine merino wool. It is unbelievably soft and has perfect stitch definition.
I’m a big fan of merino wool because it is super soft so it’s great to wear against the skin – in this case the head. Merino wool is perfect for all-year-round clothing. When it’s hot, the fibers keep you nice and cool while in cold days give off heat and keep you warm.
Feel free to substitute with any of your favorite DK weight yarns. The color options are endless with this one.

Chain 90(94, 98).
You can also make any number of chains to make the headband’s circumference bigger/smaller, but changes might result in a different yardage requirement.
Row 1 (RS): sc in the second ch from hook working in the back bump of the ch, [insert your hook into left leg of previous st, insert the hook into the back bump of the next ch and pull up a loop, yarn over and pull through all three loops on the hook] rep to end. Turn. 90(94, 98)sts
Row 2 (WS): ch1 (doesn’t count as a st here and throughout), sc in first st by inserting hook from back to front, RHsc to end. Turn. 90(94, 98)sts
Row 3 (RS): ch1, sc in first st by inserting hook from front to back, Hsc to end. Turn. 90(94, 98)sts
Repeat Rows 2 – 3 until desired height is achieved. I worked 13 rows.
Fasten off and leave long end for sewing.
Seaming the Twist
Once you have your headband ready, it’s time to do the seaming by joining the two ends together, in a special way.
- Place your headband the right side up.
- Bring both edges closer together and fold them.
- Insert one edge into another.
- Using a tapestry needle and the long final tail, seam all 4 layers together. Make sure that you are always going through all layers. The seam itself will be hidden inside the headband.
- Weave in your ends and turn your headband inside out. And done! You have now a beautiful headband with a twist.
