Wow, I so need this! I love the look of this Ponytail Hair Wrap. After reading the written pattern and the comments below, I think this will work out great! Row 3 explains how to do the double knot stitch and the single knot stitches. New to me so I have to try it, I love trying new things. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet pattern.

I, too, was very confused with the instructions. I did some research online and found 3 different websites that show how to do the double knot stitch. I think the single knot stitch is included on a couple of them. Under the Abbreviations for this project, it says HDC is also the double knot stitch. I think that is wrong. HDC is a completely different stitch. I would ignore that and learn how to do the double knot stitch.

I cannot understoand the instructions after row 2. They are not precise and do not make sense to me. I have been crocheting for 60 years but this one has me stumped.

I have to agree with the other posters - instructions are not clear. Too bad, cause it's cute...but is anyone else concerned about having a sharpened dowel attached to their body while walking around?

instructions are not clear

this is beautiful but the instructions are not good. Not clear and confusing. I also tried to find this stitch on line for some clearer instructions and there is nothing. Quite dissppointed

This is just too cool!!!! Love it!!!! And can't wait to make one.

this is going to be so neat. thank you
