Im having trouble understanding the sewing instructions....yes, SEWING, not knitting. See portion in CAPTIALS. And what are size four needles in mm? Found this pattern in the pattern section of this site.
PONYTAIL SCRUNCHIES, RUFFLED, AND SUPER-RUFFLED - (see note below)
(Great quick and easy to make for party favors, stocking stuffers, etc. make a wardrobe of colors for the children!)
Materials: Sportweight yarn, or baby yarn, about 45 yards for ruffled, and about 60 yards for super-ruffled. 1 PR. U.S. # 4 needles. Elastic ponytail circular bands, one for each scrunchie made.
Gauge: 6 sts and 8 rows = 1 inch.
Note: If using baby yarn, the gauge may be slightly different, but only gives a slight difference in finished product.
Directions: With color of yarn desired, cast on 125 sts for ruffled, or 160 sts for super-ruffled. Work in stockinette st until about 3”, to 3 ˝” in length from beg, or as desired. Bind off.
SEW LENGHTWISE KNITTED PIECE ALL AROUND ENTIRE CIRCLE OF ELASTIC PONYTAIL BAND. SEW SIDE SEAM.
Note: In above photo, yellow scrunchie was made “super-ruffled”, and about 3 inches long . Pink scrunchie was made as ruffled, and about 3 ˝ “ long. Make your own color combinations in stripes or colors as desired.
I've made those before. If you use novelty yarn (like eyelash yarn), you don't have to worry about how you stitch the seam closed. You can just wrap the yarn around and close the edges. It all blends together nicely.
