For the KH Forum April knit-along (http://www.knittinghelp.com/forum/showthread.php?t=90419) this month, we're making hair accessories. So, I chose to start off with a hair scrunchie.

I used some yarn that I spun on my spinning wheel a couple years ago - a beautiful blue merino wool.

Here's the finished scrunchie:

I tried it on, and it works great!

Thank you all!
That pattern is SO quick and easy. I think I could make eight scrunchies a day if I wanted to.

A fun spring and summer project. :thumbsup:

Hi Sandy,

Great looking scrunchy, and I too love the color you chose.

One question, will it hold really thick, strong hair? My DIL has hair so thick it's ruined many vacuum cleaners.

Thanks!

I can definitely vouch that it will hold VERY thick hair. My hair is coarse and ridiculously thick. I have an Irish heritage, as well as some Cherokee Indian thrown in. :teehee:

Thanks Nathalie! It's so easy, I feel guilty accepting compliments. :teehee: It was like knitting a tiny scarf and seaming it together.

Why feel guilty? Just because a project is easy doesn't mean you don't deserve kudos for a lovely job.

Thank you both! I've only made two of these....the first one was for a care package for a little girl in another country. It was made with a red sparkly yarn. I think I'll make some more with some novelty yarn again. So fun! :)
