You'll need: two ponytail holders that you've never used (to ensure a snug fit)
a worsted-weight yarn that's nice and soft and in a basic color (I'm using ice blue)
a US F/5 or G/6 crochet hook
a yarn needle
Abbreviations: ch= chain
ss= slip stitch
sc= single crochet
dc= double crochet
V-stitch: dc, ch 3, dc in same stitch
Single crocheting into a ring
1. Insert hook into the ring
2. Yarn over and draw up a loop
3. Yarn over and draw through both loops on the hook
Pattern (make 2)
Row 1: Work 39 sc into ponytail holder, ss in first sc, DON'T TURN
Row 2: Ch 1, sc in the next 38 sc, ss in ss of previous row
Row 3: Ch 3, *v-stitch in next sc, skip next stitch, repeat from * around, ss in the top of ch 3 (18 v-stitches)
Row 4: Ch 3, *v-stitch in second ch of v-stitch of row below, repeat from * around, ss in top of ch 3
Row 5: Repeat fourth row one more time
Row 6: Ch 1, sc in each stitch around. Fasten off. Weave in ends.
And now you're finished! Unfortunately Livejournal isn't cooperating with me and I'll have to add the finished pictures later. I'm really sorry guys!
Update 1/17: Okay here are the pictures!
Other things: If the yarn you chose is baby-weight, I would recommend you do 58 sc stitches into the ring and follow the pattern as normal.
Of course, this is just a guide: feel free to experiment with different yarns! Hot glue little ribbons, pearls and charms on them! Get creative!
