Twisted Headband Pattern and Video

This Twisted Headband is a great beginning knit project knitted in garter stitch. The pattern is below (free PDF download at the bottom of the page), and you can watch a video that walks you through the whole project step-by-step. You only need to know how to cast on (I suggest the Continental Cast On), knit, and bind off, all of which are discussed in this Beginning Knitting Lesson.



  • Size 8 knitting needles
  • Approximately 35 yards worsted weight yarn 
  • Measuring tape
  • Scissors
  • Darning needle 


  1. Cast on 12 stitches
  2. Knit every stitch.  Repeat until the headband measures 21” (or 1” less than the circumference of the head.
  3. Bind off and leave a 10” tail. 
  4. Fold the headband in half (see image 1 below.)
  5. Fold each of the ends in half (see image 2 below) and sandwich them together (see image 3 below.)
  6. Whipstitch through all four layers.  
  7. Weave both ends into the wrong side of the headband.
