Updated on June 9, 2014
The Arosep Seaweed Scrunchie
The Arosep Seaweed Scrunchie

This project is inspired by the pretty sea weed known as Arosep. It is known by it's scientific name of Caulerpa lentillifera. It is found abundantly in the Philippines.

The project is worked in the round. The foundation row is worked over a band of elastic. The final row being accentuated by clones stitch, to replicate the cute round petals of the sea weed.

I used two pieces of elastic for more durable scrunchie.

Clones Row

Special Stitch

Clones : Clones stitch for this project is worked as follows.

Ch 6, make 3 sets of wraps on the last 3 CH. SL on the base of the clones. Ch 3 and slip on the CH 2 space.

Repeat, and SL on the same CH 2 space. You will work 2 sets per CH 2 space.

Use only 3 wraps for your clones because this stitch tends to use up a lot of yarn , but it depends on you if you want a rounder petal.

The project tends to curl, as was normally the case with projects using elastics. The petals will spread out once you used it to tie your hair.

This project can be used with any yarn as gauge is not important.
