Granny Square Scrunchie

Granny Square Scrunchie

Granny squares are having (another) moment right now. This week on Ask Me Monday, I show a clever way to create a granny square around a hair band to create a uniquely shaped hair tie. A Granny Square Scrunchie is a great, quick way to use up those DK weight summer yarn scraps, and a fun project for teens and maker parties. Make one in every color!
