Crocheted Scrunchies

My daughter asked me to crochet some scrunchies for her. Not that much work, I thought, so one evening, after she went to bed, I started crocheting. Turned out next morning that the scrunchies that I made weren't exactly the ones she had in mind. She meant scrunchies like the fabric ones: a tunnel with a piece of elastic in it. Luckily she liked mine much better, so I got away well. Not sure if they will be in use as hair bands or bracelets, though. Teenagers think in mysterious ways, aren't they?








How I made them:

Round 1: 40 sc around a regular hair elastic, close with a slip stitch in the first sc (40)

Round 2: chain 2 (counts as the first dc), 2 dc in the same stitch, 3 dc in every sc of the previous round, close with a slip stitch in the chain stitch (120)

Round 3: chain 2 (counts as the first dc), 1 dc in the same stitch, 2 dc in every dc of the previous round,close with a slip stitch in the chain stitch (240)

Round 4: chain 2 (counts as the first dc), 1 dc in every dc of the previous round, close with a slip stitch in the chain stitch (240)

That's it!

I used cotton yarn for the scrunchies. Great way to lose some of your stash or leftovers.

  2. These are cute. Scrunchies are always getting lost or misplaced. I like the texture in these.

  3. These are cute and unique and I can see them as both a scrunchie and a bracelet so you can't go wrong either way. Thanks for sharing. #HomeMattersParty

  10. Interesting. I have made fabric ones, and now wonder if there is a way to knit a scrunchie.

    1. I think there must be :-). Knit a square, fold it over and sew the edges together, thread elastic through it and close. That must be it. I'm not very good at knitting and don't really like it either, but otherwise I would make them this way.

    2. Hi Liz, One of my readers has asked what size hook you have used.

      Delete
    3. I used a 3mm hook, because that was the size the yarn gave, but I guess you have to use a larger needle size if the yarn you use is thicker.

  12. What a cute project! Scrunchies are becoming the new "super cool" thing again, so you should sell these on Etsy!! :)
