Frilly flowery hair ties

I admit it, I love crochet hair ties. These frilly little flowery ties are quick and easy, not to mention a lovely burst of colour.

As you probably know by now I like quick little projects which are satisfyingly easy.  This fits the bill, plus they are so cute!

Frilly Flowery Hair Ties Pattern.

Using a 2.5mm hook, 3ply crochet cotton and a hair band.

Row 1:  Single crochet over your hair band 6 times and then chain 24 more (total of 30 chains). Unfortunately I didn’t take an acceptable photo of this step – but if you check out this post I talk about how to do it (and a photo).  Its pretty easy, just hook under the hair tie when you pull up your yarn so the sc forms around the tie holding it in place.

Row 2: Dc into the sixth chain from the hook, *ch2, skip one stitch, dc into the next stitch*. Repeat between * and * to the end of the row.

Row 3: Create petals: chain 2, turn, *6dc into the ch2 gap of the previous row, sc into the top of the dc of the previous row*. Repeat between * and * to the end of the row.

Row 4: Change to a contrasting colour. Chain 1, 2sc into the top of each dc, ss into each sc to the end of the row. Fasten off leaving a long end.

Finishing. Coil together starting with the long end and working towards your hair tie. Arrange into a flower like shape and then sew together making sure you sew over your hair tie once or twice more just to make it extra secure:

And there you have it.
