Front Twist Knit Headband

Happy New Year! I am so excited for 2021 and I thought I would start it off by posting a pattern for these super easy knit twist headbands. Throughout the holidays, I made a bunch of these because they are so adorable. I hope you like them!

Yarn: Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick & Quick (love the many color options you have with this yarn) I used charcoal (gray), blossom (pink) and Dreamcatcher (multicolor).

Size 11 knitting needles

Next, I got a bunch of these little faux leather tags from Amazon to add a nice finishing touch to my knits. I ordered some personalized ones from Etsy, but they haven’t shipped yet so I will continue using these for the time being. I simple sew these on to the side with some matching colored string.

That is it! These are so easy to knit, but the twist part makes them look very professional and add a lot of interest.
