This pattern uses very little yarn so it can be a good way to use that last bit of yarn leftover from a skein. Fast and easy to crochet. In the photo above, it is shown tied around a hair elastic.

Pattern Directions by Sandi Marshall
Example crocheted with worsted weight cotton yarn and a US size H hook. The look of the hair tie can be changed dramatically by the materials used to crochet it.

Abbreviations: ch = chain, dc = double crochet, ea = each, sp = space, sl st = slip stitch

Starting Chain: Leaving a strand of about 5 inches to weave in later, ch 8, join with sl st in first ch to form a ring.

Row 1: Turn. ch 3 (counts as first dc), (dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in ring.

Row 2: Turn. sl st in ea of first 2 dc, sl st in ch-2 sp, (ch 3, dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in same ch-2 sp.

Rows 3 - 8: Repeat Row 2.

Row 9: Turn. sl st in ea of first 2 dc, sl st in ch-2 sp, ch 3 (counts as first dc), dc in same ch-2 sp.

Row 10: Turn. ch 3 (counts as first dc), dc in last dc.

Rows 11 - 14: Repeat Row 10.

Row 15: Turn. ch 3 (counts as first dc), dc in first dc, ch 2, 2 dc in top of ch-3.

Rows 16 - 22: Repeat Row 2.

Row 23: Turn. sl st in ea of first 2 dc, ch 8, skip ch-2 sp, sl st in next dc.
End off, leaving a strand of about 5 inches to weave. Weave in ends, weaving back and forth through some of the stitches several times to secure the end well.
