Size G, H, I, or J crochet - experiment and use whatever is right for the yarn are using.
Commercial elastic pony tail holders in colors that blend with your yarn. It is important to get holders that have no metal parts so your yarn will slide all the way around without catching.
Round 1: Make a slip stitch on hook and pull tight. Working into the inside and over the holder, join with sc, *ch 3, sc over pony tail holder. Repeat from * around sliding the sc together and covering the holder without stretching. Join with ss.
You can stop here if you wish. The lavender and red holders in the image are just one round.
Round 2: ss into ch 3 space, ch 2 (counts as first dc), 3 dc in space (4 dc in space), *4 dc in next ch 3 sp of round 1. Repeat from * around, join with ss. Break off and weave in end.
The grey and blue holders in the image were made with these two rounds.
But, now it's time to make the next one truly yours by first threading some beads on your yarn (pony beads work fine on worsted weight yarn), and sliding one bead up to the hook on the second chain of each chain 3 made on the first round. Or, change colors between round 1 and round 2. Or, use ribbon instead of yarn. Or, use your imagination to do something else!
