Rnd 1: Make slip knot on hook, sc around entire band until it is filled, usually about
30 sc's, but make sure it's an even number. Sl st in 1st sc to join.

I hope you enjoy making this scrunchie. If you are a beginning crocheter, I hope it's easy to figure out. Please let me know if you have problems with it. It's different from any I've seen. Any resemblance to this one and one already in existence is purely concidental.
