Crochet it up! Hair Ties and Headbands. Scrunchies are back!!!
Ok maybe they're not making a comeback yet but it was still fun to give my old hair ties and headbands a quick makeover. Here's the tutorial... Materials: hair tie (the thicker the easier), crochet hook (3.5-5mm), yarn and scissors. Oh and a big embroidery/crochet needle which I apparently forgot to put in the picture. Tie a slip knot around the hair tie Hold the two strands of yarn between your fingers. The loose end strand will be incorporated into the stitches so you won't have to tuck it in later. Insert crochet hook under the hair tie and catch the two strands Pull the yarn back through the hair tie and up to form a loop next to the slip knot Yarn over Pull through the loop you made Now you have ond stitch on the hair tie Start a new stitch by inserting the hook back through the hair tie Now continue to complete a stitch just like the first stitch Continue to stitch around the entire hair tie, making sure to pack the stitches in already on the hook to form a slip stitch.

Crochet School. Sorry I've taken so long to post this very last post of the crochet school series.
Would you believe me if I said I don't want it to end? Haha That's not the real reason, although it is a little weird to be writing the last crochet school post (for now). I've just been busy designing new patterns and crocheting my butt off for the craft show I'm in next month, Deluxe. I was also waiting for all of you to have time to put in questions you want answered in this post. Let's cover those questions first: Carly asked "I think you mentioned that you can weave in ends with a hook. Hi carly, Since you're making a blanket, I would probably just try to find a bigger needle.
Nia asked "I understand how to make the corners when seaming horizontally but what about vertically.. do we skip the corners and just seam the sides? Since you only do one corner from each side when seaming horizontally, you'll pick up those other two corners when you to the vertical stitches. Don't be afraid to ask for help!
