My twist knit headband has been my most requested Addi Express tutorial to date. They are items that always do well for me at markets and something I find myself wearing often. You can make them in so many yarns and colors and they will always looks great. These are fairly simple to make even for beginners.

- Addi Express King
- 1 skein Caron Simply Soft in your choice of color.
- You can use another yarn of similar weight, but just be aware that some yarns may be a bit more finicky than others. I personally have found Caron Simply Soft to be the easiest on my machine plus it is machine washable which is always a nice plus for wearables.
- A couple yards of scrap yarn in a contrasting color.
- Crochet hook (any size between 4mm – 5.5mm will work)
- Yarn Needle

Twist Knit Headband Tutorial
The video goes through all the steps for using the Addi Express and completing the pattern. Below I have listed out all the steps for you as well. Happy making loves.
Using waste yarn cast on and make 5 rows
Leaving a long tail (60 inches) begin with your main yarn. Make 75 rows with this yarn.
Do not cut yarn, set skein in middle of project then using waste yarn make 5 more rows.
Now close the ends of the tube by stitching them together with single crochets or slip stitches. (minute marker 8:30 in the video).
Lay tube flat. Turn one end completely over creating a twist. Seam the ends together using slip stitches. (17:00 minute marker).
Weave in the ends. Now your twist knit headband is done.
Now Onto Styling
Now that your headbands are done, how will you style them? Will you wear them with your hair down and slide it over like a crown? Will you wear it your hair up in a bun with it? Will you make it in one color? Or many colors?
I cannot wait to see how you all decide to wear your new twist knit headband. If you have any suggestions for new patterns, blog posts you’d like to see, or questions on this tutorial, please leave them below. Thanks for following along babes, XOXO Taylor Lynn
