Always stretch out the pony band before using to test its metal clasp for strength. You might want to hold two bands together while making your scrunchie for extra security from breakage.

Entire scrunchie is worked holding two strands of yarn together at the same time.

Many of you have written to me to ask how you can help support CrochetKim. A Patreon account was suggested but I thought it would be better to provide ad-free PDF's of my patterns. You can, of course, view, print ,paste to a word processor, convert to PDF's, etc, on your own. This is just an extra feature so that people help out if they want. Thank you to all of you for your overwhelming support and kindness these many years. Enjoy!
