Twist Front Headband Assembly
When you have crocheted two of the headband pieces, you are ready to assemble your headband! First, wrap the two pieces around each other as shown in the image below. You want the two ends to line up on either side of the center twist.
To keep the ribbed look consistent, you want to slightly over lap the ends on either side of the twist. You may have to try twisting your pieces in a different direction to get that consistent ribbed look. When you have your pieces positioned as you like, it’s time to use your yarn needle and a length of yarn to stitch the two pieces together.
After stitching the overlapped ends together, your headband should look something like this:
Now, all that’s left to do is sew your rectangular piece into a tube. Bring the edges together and use your needle and a length of yarn to sew the headband closed.
Finally, weave in any remaining ends, and your chunky knot-front headband is all done! Ta-Da! So easy, right?
Just look how happy I am about my new headband! 😂
