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.
Rnd 1: Attach both strands to pony band with sl st, ch 1, sc around band with an even number of stitches. Be sure to fill the entire pony band. It will not stretch out properly if it’s not filled. Stretch band slightly, to evenly space the stitches.
Rnd 2: Ch 1, *rev hdc in next sc, ch 1, sk 1 sc, rep from * around, sl st to beg ch 1, fasten off.
Carefully weave in all ends.
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 PDFs of my patterns so you would get something in return. I'm steadily working on adding PDFs to all my patterns and I've also made this compilation available at a discounted price. Thank you to all of you for your overwhelming support and kindness these many years. Enjoy!
