Today as I was dressing I couldn’t find one scrunchie for my hair. No headbands. Nothing. After a couple hours of pushing my long hair behind my ears I was ready to pull it all out. So in desperation I looked in my handy crochet/knitting caddy. Inside it I found some elastic thread that I had bought last year. So I did a search at crochet pattern central and found lots of cute scrunchie patterns. I chose to make myself the chain scrunchie in a nice soft pink shade. I didn’t have any ponytail elastics, so I cut my elastic thread 20", tied the ends together and then looped it until it was three strands thick. For my daughter I chose to make the spiral scrunchie but I made the spirals shorter. I made that one out of pink and white, also using the elastic thread.
They stay in the hair much better than the store-bought scrunchies that I have…..somewhere in this house. This one isn’t slipping out of my fine thinnish hair at all.
Now, if only I could find the title for the van that I’ve been looking for…..
