I made these last summer using scrap yarn, after seeing this blog, which they are completed inspired by.  http://rupestur.blogspot.com/2007/07/quite-refreshing-stash-buster.html  I can't knit very well, so I decided to make a crocheted version.  I finished them and then lost them.   Cry  Half a year later I found them in my closet while spring cleaning, so I finally tried them out... they work wonderfully and are so much more comfy on the head than rag curlers.  I have long hair, but it's pretty fine, so I only had to use five curlers for my whole head.

Here they are (my boyfriend thought I was making tampons when I made them, lol):


And the results:






I was so surprised with the results!  The curlers held up all day and I didn't even use any styling products, my fine hair usually doesn't hold curls for very long, which is another reason I was so surprised.

Thanks for looking!

Thank You for sharing!  I have longed over the sewn version but I do not have patience with my sewing machine.  I never even thought about crocheting them!

(Guess what I am doing tonight???)   Cheesy

LOL I have to admit my first thought was "Crocheted tampons??" but once I read the title it made more sense! Those are really neat looking and the finished result is awesome. Huzzah for finding (awesome) lost things! Smiley
