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 9.0mm 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 your knit twist top headband is ready to wear!
