Layla Hair Tie

I don’t know about you but it seems like the month of August just flew by. Fitting in all the lasts for the summer and jumping headfirst into school prep sure kept us busy this month. I had intended on getting a few more patterns through testing and released but I had hit the snooze button and focus on getting my boys settled into their respective schools. Not to mention all of the craziness that goes into getting my own classroom ready!

I am thrilled to be finally releasing the Layla Hair Tie. This pattern has been in the works all summer and my testers had wrapped up their hair ties a few weeks ago. But alas, it is the end of August and I was finally able to get everything together for release.

The Layla Hair Tie is worked in unturned rounds and makes a great stash buster for yarn weights from super fine to bulky. It is a super quick make and is an elegant hair accessory staple. What color and yarn weight will you choose?

I am sharing the crochet instructions for using worsted weight yarn to make your Layla Hair Tie below but if you would like to make it in another weight, the details and instructions for each yarn weight are provided in the paid pattern pdf which is available in my Ravelry store! Enjoy!
