Crocheted Scrunchies (free pattern)


Stash Buster 11

  My daughters (11 and 13) had vacation a couple of weeks ago and before the pandemic started, my idea was to go to Finland this vacation for my dream holiday: a sledge dog tour. I'm not really into dogs, to be honest, but there's something about huskies (huskies more than malamutes, because of the shorter hair) that I really like. Maybe it's their ever smiling face or their enthusiasm, but I realize these are features lots of dog breeds have. Maybe it's because they so much look like wolves, which are my favorite animals. I'm not that spiritual, but when someone says 'totem animal', I think wolf.

Anyway, due to known circumstances there was no sledge dog tour this year, but I wanted my daughters to have a nice vacation anyway, within the limits of pandemic measures. In our country that means, among some other things, no more than one visitor in your house at a time. So my oldest asked her friend to stay over for a couple of nights, while my youngest stayed at her friends house for some nights.

My oldest asked me to make some scrunchies for her friend and because I had nothing else to do (that's a joke, of course) I did. I made these scrunchies before; it's a great way to use up some yarn remainders.

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!


  1. I would make these if my hair was long enough. Though I could make these for my granddaughter.
