How To Knit A Twist Top Headband + Video Tutorial

Looking for a super cute and easy as pie knitting project?  Look no further than this adorable twist top headband!  Basic knit stitches are worked into a simple rectangle, then cleverly seamed with just a few stitches to give it the fun twist at the top.  Fun to wear and fun to make for a quick gift too!

Follow along to the full video tutorial:


Here's what you'll need:
  • 64 yards of super bulky/#6 yarn (I used Hometown by Lion Brand in "Key Largo Tweed")
  • US 13 9.0 mm straight knitting needles
  • Tape measure
  • Tapestry needle
  • Scissors                                                     

  • 4 inches wide
  • 20 inch circumference

Here's how to make it!
  1. Cast on 10 stitches.
  2. Row 1: Knit all stitches.
  3. Repeat row 1 for about 20 inches (or what fits best for you).
  4. Bind off all stitches, leaving a long tail for seaming.
  5. To seam the headband, bring the two ends together and fold them both in half to make a "c" shape with each ends.  Bring them together, interlocking them.  Sew all layers of the "sandwich" using the tail.  Secure with a strong knot and weave in any ends.
  6. Turn headband right side out and straighten and neaten it up.
  7. Now it's ready to wear!
Note: if you have never knitted before, be sure to check out the video tutorial (above) where I walk you through each step of the way!
