You’re going to love the crochet Gylden Twist headband, because it’s such an easy make, it’s double brimmed & it’s such a great gift idea!
The best thing about this headband is the beautiful twist in the front, combined with the fact that it’s double brimmed & thus will keep you nice & warm!
It’s a super soft yarn, with a touch of luxury, the mohair. In addition to the mohair, the yarn is acrylic.
This definitely comes high on my list of favorite yarns from Lion Brand.
THE PERFECT CHRISTMAS GIFT CROCHET PROJECT
This headband is definitely the perfect crochet Christmas gift for women. It looks really expensive, but it’s also easy & affordable to make.
Make it with any yarn you’ve got at hand, & you’ll have the gift ready in just a few short hour or a couple of days!
It got the name Gylden, because of the golden tones the orange in the modeled headband has!

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO CROCHET THAT?
How long it takes to crochet something varies depending on your skill & how fast you crochet. But that isn’t a helpful answer is it?
Well, I’ve developed a yarn calculator to help you get the answer to this question.
It will help you calculate exactly how much time you’ll spend crocheting a project.
All you need to know is how much yarn you will use on the project in either meters, yards or skeins. Then crochet your test square & time it.

STITCHES YOU WILL NEED:
FOUNDATION SINGLE CROCHET STITCH (FSC):
Step 1: Ch 2 st.
Step 2: Insert hook into 2nd ch from hook, pull up a loop. Yo and pull through first loop (making “chain”). Yo and pull through both loops on hook.
Step 3: Insert hook into prev “chain” you made (It should look like you go through a resemblance of a “normal” st, with 2 strands of yarn), pull up a loop, yo and pull through first loop (making “chain”). Yo and pull through both loops on hook.
Repeat step 3 until you’ve made enough stitches. *2nd ch in step 1 makes 1 st, step 2 makes 1 st & every time step 3 is repeated you make 1 st.
BACK LOOP SINGLE CROCHET STITCH (BLsc):
Crocheted with the exact same steps as a normal single crochet, however you’ll only insert the hook in the back loop of the stitch.
FRONT LOOP SINGLE CROCHET STITCH (FLSC):
Crocheted with the exact same steps as a normal single crochet, however you’ll only insert the hook in the front loop of the stitch.
Make 43 stitches using the FSC method, sl st in 1st st.
Round 1: Ch 1 (counts as 1st st), PM in ch, *BLSc 1 in next st, FLsc 1 in next st*, repeat from *to* until you reach PM, do not end round (=43 st).
BLsc in ch, PM.
Work all following rounds:
*FLsc, BLSc*, repeat from *to* until headband measures 48 cm / 18.9, you have crocheted 87 rounds or you reach desired length.
FLsc stitches will be worked in BLsc stitches and vice versa.
Fasten off & cut yarn.
