"Curly" Hair Ties / Bookworm
I used sport weight yarn and a "G" hook

Ch 23
2. 2 dc in 3rd ch from hook

3. 3 dc in each ch across

4. Chain 50--at this point use a piece of scrap yarn  
and mark this chain. This is very important.

5. Now continue and ch 23 turn.

6. 2 dc in 3rd ch from hook

7. 3 dc in each ch until you reach your marker.

Fasten off. Weave in loose ends. Remember this can be adjusted to any size. my daughter has fine hair and I made this for her hair.

Now to make the Bookworm

Now if you want to make the bookmarker---on step 4 chain the length that you want and fasten off. Make a pom-pom and attach at the end of the chain. Now glue on eyes and a felt mouth (on the curly end) and you have a cute gift.
This is the way that I make them.
