Crochet your own wrist cuffs!

Do you love wrist cuffs, but can't justify dropping $20 and shipping on a pair? Do you at least have a basic knowledge of crochet and some spare ponytail holders? If you answered yes to all three questions, then you can make yourself a pair!

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

Notes

V-stitch: dc, ch 3, dc in same stitch

Single crocheting into a ring

1. Insert hook into the ring

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!

Thank you for reading and happy crocheting!
