Simple Twisted Headbands

Since I cut my hair recently, it’s been interfering more with my workouts ๐Ÿ™‚ so I decided to make a couple of the simple twisted headband that I made last year for my sis. (Pattern by Rebecca Langford.)

And when my sis found me crocheting these, she requested a wider version to serve as an ear warmer for herself. (The weather has been zigzagging like crazy lately, and it got pretty cold really quickly recently.)

I used foundation crochet for all these items, which I think worked out better than the earlier headband, which started with a chain. Instead of following the recommended gauge, I just went with my gut. It worked out okay.

The brown ones are for me – the yarn is a bit coarse, and I’d had to frog a couple of apparel projects that I’d completed with it because they were not very comfortable to wear. Since then, I’ve been using this yarn for projects that do not constantly touch the skin – covers and cases for items, decorative pieces, and the previous headband too! ๐Ÿ™‚

For the narrower headband, I added a thinner, pink yarn to the brown one – this one too had looked promising, but had knit up pretty bad, and was subjected to frogging as well. (Now that I think about it, I seem to have frogged quite a few projects…)

The red ear warmer is for my sis – I added a simple eyelet design along the middle since it is wide and I felt that it needed something extra.

I’ve already used the headbands for my workouts, and they are definitely a huge help. As for the earwarmer, it hasn’t been used yet since the weather is oscillating again, but I’m hoping it’ll serve my sis well when it gets colder.

And now, I go back into hibernation, waiting for my next project! Hope your projects are giving you joy.

    1. Thanks, Ivana! If you ever try crocheting, I’m sure you’ll find it fun.
      I wanted a narrow(er) band but didn’t want it to stretch too much, so I made it shorter! ๐Ÿ™‚ It fits as well as the other one, though, so yay! In fact, the other one is now slightly looser after a few uses and washes, so it’ll be interesting to see how this one holds up.

  1. Those headbands look great. When my hair was chin length, it was always in my eyes when I was at the gym or doing yoga. Now that is is beyond my shoulders, it is much easier to manage. I would have never guessed.

    1. It’s funny how much small things affect us without us realizing it. ๐Ÿ™‚ Longer hair involved managing different things, and with these headbands, I think shorter hair has more positives for me.

  2. They look really nice and practical! I wish I could wear them too but with my fringe, I always end up with a headband moving to the back of my head and I can’t keep my hair from sticking out of it in a weird way. Great that they work well for you!

    1. Thanks! I guess fringe dynamics work differently. ๐Ÿ™‚ I need to add clips / hairpins as well to not make my hair stick out, but it’s still better with a headband than without.
      It’s good to hear from you – been a while since you posted on your blog. (And if you do on Instagram, I’m not there much.)

    1. You could even make one if you’d like a quick break from your project! ๐Ÿ™‚ It hardly requires a couple of hours from start to finish.
