This crochet book has some simple projects in it, one of which I have had an attempt at.
Inspired by the above image I attempted a little hair tie for Adelaide. She now has long enough hair for a very straggly and scruffy ponytail. I think the ponytail is more wishful thinking at this stage, but these simple crochet flowers are fun to make and can be whipped up in a few minutes.
I crocheted the flower onto a plain hair tie purchased at the local supermarket.
And with the beautifully clear instructions provided in all the Japanese crochet books, you can't go wrong.
The books include a legend too, so you can easily decipher the patterns. The Japanese are so wonderfully thoughtful and clear headed about this sort of thing. I find this diagram so much better to follow than a written pattern.
