Look how much Adelaide's ponytail has grown in 9 months.
I do like crocheting these little hair ties.
They are a quick and easy project. The pattern is Motif number 31 from this same book. The hair elastics are from the supermarket and the yarn is a 3 ply cotton from Spotlight called Milford Soft.
I've found the most reliable way to attach them to the elastic is just to incorporate the elastic into the crochet in the first round.
Adelaide rather likes them but hates having her hair brushed. Who doesn't when hair is sticky and knotted with every bit of food eaten. That's why the hair ties are rather crucial at present.
