Choose between a Reindeer, Snowman or Gingerbread ponytail holder for your Christmas winter holiday crochet fun.
These ponytail holders are so quick and easy – all you need is a scrap amount of yarn, an inexpensive elastic hair tie and a small amount of polyfil filling. Add additional embellishments as desired – safety eyes, small red Pom Pom and wiggle eyes for Reindeer, safety eyes for gingerbread man and snowman. Or, you can embroider eyes as desired.
I think this pattern would be easy enough for beginners using single crochet stitches throughout. Worked in the round in two pieces which are then sewn together and stuffed.
