Twisted Headband {Free Crochet Pattern}

Twisted Headband {Free Pattern}I finally finished up with all my orders and I was able to make this twisted headband for myself!  I’ve been wanting to make a new headband so I did a quick pinterest search and found this pattern on ravelry! It was exactly what I was looking for!  I started reading the pattern and found that it had a button closure in the back.  The button closure is a great idea but I wanted mine to be thick in the back and look more like a turban.  I did a little tweaking to the pattern and I LOVE the way it turned out!  Please look at the original pattern for pictures to do the “criss-cross” at the front of the headband! She has great explanations!
