You may have used the wrong sized hair tie. The pattern calls for a 2″ hair tie. Check it out.
Is there a problem with my comment ?
How big is the hair tie you started with ? All my wife had were 1.5″ and I was pushing it to get 70 DC in the thing.
Sorry that we missed this comment! I just checked with the designer and she said that her hair ties were 2 inches in diameter. I hope that helps!
