This is a pattern that my Mother used to make for me and now I pass it on to you.
Materials: Size G hook (my preference), scraps of worsted weight yarn (you can make multicolored ones this way)
FOR HAIR TIES: Ch 100. In third ch from hook, work 9 dcs, ch 3, sl st in same ch as dcs are worked.
Spirals: End #1: ch 2, 2 hdc in next st, (3 hdc in next ch) 15 times, 2 hdc in next ch, ch 2, sl st in same ch.
Body: sl st in each ch until 17 chs from end
End #2: Work same as End #1, but work backwards - work (3 hdc in next ch) 15 times, 2 hdc in next ch, ch 3, sl st into last ch, ch 3, work (9 dc, ch 3, sl st) in same ch. Fasten off.
*The red one pictured is an old one from my childhood, the variegated one I made with "Victorian Christmas Gold" Mistletoe Ombre (color 1903) to check these directions.
Start with ch of 63, make End #1 only use 5 hdc per ch, work sl st down entire length of ch, at end secure a pom-pom.
