LOOPY HAIR SCRUNCHIE
LOOPY HAIR SCRUNCHIE @
2000by Cathy Hansen
Begin by stringing about
80 pony beads onto the yarn.
First round:Work enough sc around an elastic hair tie to
cover the tie (about 30 to 40 sc, depending on thickness of yarn); join with sl
st to first sc.
Round 2:Ch 1, sc in back loop of first sc, *ch 7,
slip a bead up next to the hook, ch 7 (on opposite side of bead), sc in back
loop of next sc.*Repeat from * to *until end of round; sl st in first sc; ch 1,
Round 3:Sc in back loop of next sc (the loop
remaining unworked from first round), *ch 7, slip a bead up next to the hook,
ch 7 (on opposite side of bead), sc in back loop of next sc.*Repeat from * to * until end of round, sl st
in first sc.End off and weave in loose
I've found that this
pattern works best with lighter-weight yarns.I also like to use Sugar & Cream sport weight crochet cotton.You could also do variations of this pattern
by working more or less single crochet on each side of the bead, using
different types of beads, substituting a picot for the bead, etc.You can even do it with just loops.
One of my favorites is to
use pastel ombre yarn and string fun shaped pastel colored plastic beads
(butterflies, bows, teddy bears, etc.).They're great for kids!
Up until recently, I also
used two hair elastics for my scrunchies - it seems like when I used just one,
they used to fall apart!Now, however,
I've found hair elastics with no metal connector - just continuous elastic, so
I've switched to them and have been able
to use just one.
