KNITTING PATTERN TO MAKE HAIR SCRUNCHIES WITH RUFFLES

Helpful Tip: Before Casting On, unravel about 122 inches of yarn tail. This helps prevent you from underestimating the amount of yarn and running out after casting on dozens of stitches!

Cast On Stitches on Circular Knitting Needle

Cast On: 200 Stitches

Row 1: Knit All

Row 2: Knit 2 Together (100 Sts Remain)

Row 3: Knit All (Optional: Change yarn colors at the beginning of this row to achieve the same border as my sample)

Row 4: Knit 2 Together (50 Sts Remain)

Rows 5 – 20: Knit All

Cast Off, leaving a long yarn tail from which you will sew up your work

RUFFLES: By decreasing our stitches from 200 down to 50 in just these first 4 rows of knitting, the edge easily ruffles. So cute!
