Crochet Houndstooth Twist Headband Free Pattern

Crochet Houndstooth Twist Headband Pattern by Crochet For You.

After making Crochet Houndstooth Mini Stocking, Peppermint Houndstooth Scarf and Hat, I wanted to make more designs with the houndstooth crochet stitch.

So today I’m going to add another pattern to my crochet houndstooth pattern collection. Here is a Houndstooth Twist Headband.

This easy and fast crochet headband is perfect to try in cold days. The headband features the houndstooth stitch and the twist part. This pattern is also a great way to use your yarn stash.
