Hi Susan,

I made tons of then for my church bazaar.

I bought elastic bands and then just crochet around them.
Used up alot of scrap yarn.
The girls mostly liked the fun fur ones.
Good luck

Thanks! I'm new here and find it amazing that one can get help so quickly. I will check out the sites you found. I am technologically challenged; but hope to improve. Thanks again.

Hi Sue,
Once you get started, you won't believe how creative you can get.

Thread beads onto the yarn before you start to crochet. Then just slip one into a stitch here and there.
Bells annoy parents and teachers..go for it!
I made lots with the loop stitch. Where you pull a longer loop before you sc. Sort of poodle looking. Mix and match yarns and colors.The fun fur was a hit. But it all depends on the ages of the girls.

Enjoy this fun project.

Hi Susan,
Sadly, no.
I haven't a clue how to get a pix from my camera onto the computer. Bet my 6 yr old grandson could.

I am so techno challenged.

Hope you make a ton of pony holders.

My name is Lisa & I crochet ponytail holder for my two neices. I take the larger size bands & single crochet all around to cover the band & then I do 3 double crochet in each single crochet & on some of them I add anothe band of single crochet to the edge in another color. This is also really pretty in verigated yarns.

Thanks, Lisa,
I will definitely give these a try. I'm sure my 5 and 7 year old grand daughters will thank you, too.
Sue

Do you find a particular weight yarn works better than another? What about crochet hook size?

Thanks everyone for the ponytail helps. I've tried a few and even varied one a bit. I also tried using sock yarn and got a nice effect....a bit more delicate. Am now looking for something glitsy to try. You all got me going. Thanks.
