I am always on the look out for ways of using up wool oddments and this crochet scrunchie hair band is my latest solution.
You will need
Size 4mm crochet hook
Double knit yarn oddments
Plain hair band/elastic
Work sixty double crochet into the centre of the hair band so that the elastic is contained within the stitch, slip stitch to join.
Three slip stitch and one treble into the top of the same double crochet. Then work two trebles into the top of each double crochet and continue around. Slip stitch to join.
For the shell edging select a contrasting colour yarn and attach with a double crochet. *Miss a double crochet and then work five trebles in to the top of the next double crochet. Miss a double crochet and work one double into the top of the next double crochet. Repeat from *
