Easy-peasy scrunchy

Do you have leftovers from your projects? Then it's perfect for you!

It's fast to make, cute and holds hair really good. I used Palette Boa Flapper Yarn I call that yarn - curtains :) 

You will need 4 double point needles.  I used size 6.
With one needle cast on 12 sts.
Divide onto 3 needles (4 sts on each needle). Being careful not to twist the sts. And knit every row, till piece measures 8 inches. Bind off. 
Put elastic inside, you will need around 10 inches, tie a couple of knots, make sure it's secure. And sew knitted piece together in ring. Done. Enjoy making it and wearing it!

Hearts for Valentine's Day

Perfect present for some one special on Valentine's Day. Use it to make a key chain or hanger for a door. Or just give heart to your love one, decorate it with bids or ribbon, do an embroidery with his name on it. I made those hearts based on Martha Stewart Knitted Catnip and changed that up for medium & large hearts. See instructions below...
