Amazing Grace Twisted headband is a simple pattern using the Amazing Grace standard stitch. To achieve the twist that sets this off,  you work the pattern in two sections for a few rows, cross them and work the piece in one solid pattern again… But, don’t worry, there is a photo tutorial at the bottom of the pattern for you to see how this works!!

The Amazing Grace Free Crochet Pattern Series is dedicated to Breast Cancer Awareness and my dearest friend Sandra Kay Gilb. Sandra and I were childhood friends and inseparable until the end. We shared our lives in so many ways, marriages, births of our children, tragedies and more good times than anyone could ever ask for.   Sandra passed away in 2007  from Breast Cancer.  This was a devastating loss and spurred my passion for Breast Cancer Awareness!  At the age of 43 Sandra was diagnosed with Breast Cancer, the same disease that took her mother’s life many years earlier and claimed Sandra’s life in less than 2 years.  Each Amazing Grace Pattern is designed to comfort cancer patients as they are treated and recovering from this or any disease!!  Please pay it forward by donating items made from these patterns to help someone afflicted by this disease.
