Btw, it can make a cute little gift. Or if you have a daughter with friends whom have long hair, it could make great party favors while celebrating your girl's birthday.
So here we go.
ch - chain
st(s) - stitch(es)
sc - single crochet
hdc - half double crochet
dc - double crochet
yarn, hook, elastic, scissors
- Make a knot stitch and place it "inside" the elastic. Make a chain around it, then make one more chain. Crochet 36 single stitches around the elastic. Join into the circle.
- ch3, skip 2 sts from previous, 1 sc into third st, *[ch2, skip 2 sts from previous, 1 sc into third st]* repeat from * to * 11 more times (total 12 sets of ch2 "bands").
Note: instead of last sc, join the circle with the slip st.
- Crochet into each ch2 "band" this way: *[1 sc, 1 hdc, 2 dc, 1 hdc, 1 sc, finish with ch5 - which will create a decorative loop between the "petals"]* - repeat from * to * 11 more times. Join last ch5 at the base of first sc in the third row.
Weave in your ends.
I also recorded a video, which can be found HERE.
Unfortunately my camera fell out of my hands (prior to my videotaping). Initially it would not turn on, so I took batteries out and made it work, but the camera is not functioning well anymore. Therefore my apologies for a bad recording.
