My daughter loves my crochet hair ties, and it had been a while since I made her a new one. One of her requests was for a crochet bee hair tie. I decided that would be the next one to make for her. It will be a perfect hair accessory for spring.
This is an easy and quick project. It doesn’t use a lot of yarn, so it is perfect for using scraps of yarn leftover from other projects.
For this hair tie I used a 5mm crochet hook, and Big Twist Value yarn.
