Stash buster scrunchies

My daughter requested some new scrunchies this week, so I raided my stash and came up with these:

I made her one some time ago by crocheting around an elastic band, but that broke quite quickly so these are based on a 10cm length of 5mm wide sewing elastic. The method is fairly simple – sew the elastic into a circle, double crochet as many stitches as will fit round the elastic circle. Then do a row of treble crochet making two trebles into every stitch. Finish off and thread in ends as usual, then give to the happy recipient!
You will recognise the yarn, and the blankets that they were used for!
