I knew it was only a matter of time before my daughter requested a crochet dinosaur hair tie. She wants dinosaurs on everything! Most of the dinosaur projects I have made for her are for using in the cold weather. Because of this, she is very excited to have something dinosaur themed to wear in the summer.
This hair tie was very easy to make. It takes only a small amount of yarn, and the entire project is made without cutting and joining yarn.
