Learn how to crochet a stylish crochet ear warmer headband with a twist with this free crochet headband pattern.  The Aran/worsted weight yarn is cozy enough to stop those ears getting cold without making you too warm!


This headband pattern uses a Mobius twist which creates a permanent twist in the headband. It's one of those crochet techniques that can seem complicated when you've not used it before and makes much more sense when you're making the project! 


The Mobius twist is worked in the round and creates a seamless look. Although, when worked in self-striping yarn such as the yarn I used, the seam maybe a little more visible. Plus, as it's worked in one pieces, the only time you'll need your darning needle is to weave in the 2 ends! BIG WIN in my book!


Even if you've never made a Mobius twist, I am confident that you will master this crochet technique with ease as there is a photo tutorial and a video to follow too!

How to make this Free Crochet Headband Pattern

With 5.5mm crochet hook


Ch 62 (66, 70, 72, 78)


Slip Stitch to 1st Ch, ensuring chain is not twisted.


Round 1: Ch1 (does not count as a stitch), HDc same Ch as Ch1, HDc into each Ch around, working into the back bump of the Ch. Lay flat on a surface, ensuring Row 1 is not twisted, twist the beginning of the row by 90 degrees, bringing up the tail yarn in line with the last St worked, Sl St to join into the bottom of the Ch. (62, 66, 70, 72, 78)


By twisting at the end of Round 1, you will create the Mobius Twist, that permanent twist into your project.

From Round 2, you will work rounds which adds stitches to both edges of your project.

Round 2 begins by working across the bottom of the starting chain before continuing on to working across Round 1.

Placing a stitch marker into the 1st stitch made in the round will help identify the start and end of the round.


Round 2: Ch1, HDc into same St as Ch1, PHDc, PM in 1st St (this will help you identify the beginning of the round), PHDc into each St around to the St before the marker, HDc in last St, Sl St to 1st HDc to join the round. (124, 132, 140, 144, 156)

Round 3: Ch1, HDc into same St as Ch1, HDc in next, PM in 1st St, HDc into each St around. Sl St to 1st HDc to join the round. (124, 132, 140, 144, 156)
