These are fantastic! I couldn't find the plastic rings when I was at acmoore so I bought some 32mm key rings and they are working great!

I recently took over a very nervous group of new crocheters. (Did I volunteer?) They desperately wanted to finish a project before Christmas. Oh dear. But I found your little design and they've almost finished theirs. I wish you could see the joy they've expressed in achieving your pattern as their first completed item.

I made rings out of duct tape. Lay a piece of green( it hides best) duct tape about 7 inches long sticky side up. Fold up about 1/8 th inch from the bottom. Roll up the I sticky section as close to 1/8 th inch onto the sticky above. Continue til you have a long snake. Join the snake into a loop with a piece of duct tape. I too had a problem finding the right size rings in the store.

I use plastic or metal plumbing washers and key rings for the center ring. you can get them cheap any hardware department

I use little girl elastic s. this way you can stretch them to make the 36 sc. I have done a very similar pattern for ponytail elastic s. and I really love.this Christmas decoration. I have a hugh family so can make a set for each. Thank you.

This is a gorgeous idea for a Christmas decoration. We've featured it in our Top 10 Christmas Decorations post on our blog: http://bit.ly/1eVbjzF

I found this pattern about two years ago and every single year I make at least a handful of these ornaments. I also use a smaller plastic ring and a 2.00 crochet hook and turned this pattern into a Christmas Wreath broach/pin. Thank you for coming up with this pattern! It's amazing!
