I am about to cry! lol easy...well I know I'm a novice ,but I can not understand the second strip!! can maybe someone help ,is there a video? I do not get the part start by attaching your bulk yarn to the first stitch of the headband..if I get that I prob can get the rest please...help!!!

I found is Twist of Fate Headband listed in my Favecrafts email today. It is one of my favorite headbands, too. It looks warm and comfortable. Another good gift idea after I ke one for myself.

I love the color and design of this crochet headband. You can easily wear it throughout many seasons while looking extra chic.

I like the look of this. It appears to be fairly easy to do too. Thanks Dana B. for your message. I'll make sure to pay attention to that when I make my first one. I think these would make nice gifts for family and friends. It's cold during three seasons of the year here so they would come in very handy. A smaller hook should enable me to make some for children too.

What am I missing. If you chain 10 then 2 total 12. If you start in the 4 chain from hook you end up with 8 DC. Right?

Hi there! I looked at the Hopeful Honey blog comments on this pattern and this is what one person discovered: "I thought the same thing at first but then realized 9, 10, 11, 12 making the 9th chain the 4th from the 12th and the first one you double crochet in; and then you have to count the chain two as your first double crochet in each row. making 10 stitches for each row. Hope this helps. I almost quit before beginning because I had the same thought. Glad I didn't. It turned out beautifully!" I hope that helps! -Dana from FaveCrafts

This twist of fate headband is a great pattern for beginners. The pattern reads very easy and it will work up fast when using bulky weight yarn. The headband pattern would be good for a nice gift for that special person. Winter headbands are coming back and are cute for all age groups. Looks like a fun pattern to work up.

This is a cute pattern for a winter headband. I have an old one that I want to replace but it keeps,going to the back burner. Big hook and chunky yarn makes a for a fast project.

This is going to be perfect for my daughter and daughter in law. They are always asking me for something they can wear like a hat, which will keep their ears warm, but will not mess their hair. I think I just found the perfect solution for their problem, thank you so much for sharing this pattern with us.
