    velvet crochet scrunchies

    Making Crochet Velvet Scrunchies

    When making these ruffled crochet scrunchies, my favorite is to use Bernat velvet yarn. Several velvet yarn options exist, but this one is always great to work with. A crochet velvet scrunchie is so elegant and super fun to wear once finished. 

    Round 1: working the yarn around the hair tie, ch 2, then hdc around the hair tie. As you work, push the stitches you already made together, so that they are sitting snugly against each other. The total amount of stitches you are able to fit will depend on the size of your hair tie. 

    When using a new hair band that is approximately 6 inches around. I try to fit about 50 sc stitches in the first round. Join with a sl st to the first st in the round. 

    Round 2 – 3: ch 1, make 2 hdc sts in each st around. Join with a sl st. 

    Finish off and weave in the ends.

    Ruffled Crochet Scrunchie with Cotton Yarn

    Making a ruffled crochet scrunchie out of cotton yarn is a nice option because the scrunchie will be able to handle being exposed to water better. Plus, it is a durable type of yarn and looks just plain cute. 

    Round 1: working with your cotton yarn around the hair tie, ch 1. Still working around the rubber band, sc around. As you work, gently push the stitches back so that they sit snuggly against the previous stitches. Try for approximately 50 sc sts, however, please note that the exact amount will depend on the size of your hair tie. Join with a sl st to the first st in the round. 

    Round 2: ch 2, work 2 dc sts in each st around. Join with a sl st. 

    Round 3: ch 2, work 3 dc sts in the same st, *dc in next st, work 3 dc in the following st*. Repeat from * to * around. Join with a sl st to the first st. 

    Finish off and weave in the ends. 

    fluffy chain crochet scrunchie

    Crochet Fluffy Scrunchie

    This fun pattern makes a fluffy yet somewhat chunky scrunchie pattern. This is one of the easiest scrunchie patterns to make, and it has a fun appearance when complete. 

    Round 1: working around the elastic hair band, ch 2, sc around the band, gently pushing the sc sts, so that they sit snugly against each other but don’t overlap. Try to fit approximately 50 sc sts, but depending on the size of your band, you may be able to fit more or fewer stitches. 

    Round 2: ch 1, sc in the first st, ch 15 sts, sc in same st, *sc in the next st, ch 15 sts, sc in same st*. Repeat from * to * around. Join with a sl st. Finish off and weave in the ends.

    Lacey Crochet Scrunchie 

    This lacey crochet scrunchie is a pretty scrunchie option. This is made using half-double crochet stitches and worked in the back loops only. I like to work in the 3rd back loop to get the pretty almost knit-stitch look. 

    Round 1: ch 17 sts, wrap the ch sts around the elastic hair band, then join the yarn with a sl st to form a circle around the hair band. 

    Round 2: ch 1, hdc in each st around. Join with a sl st to the first hdc st created. 

    Round 3: ch 1, working in 3rd loop of the hdc from the previous round, make a hdc in each st around. Join with a sl st to the first hdc st made. 

    Repeat round 3 until the crochet scrunchie is your desired length. Remember that you may need to scrunch the crochet part together so that it has enough extra when you pull the hair tie out all of the way.

    When the crochet part is long enough, finish off and leave a long tail for sewing. Thread a yarn needle with the long yarn tail and whip stitch the two open ends together. Weave in any ends, and then trim the excess. 

    How to Crochet Scrunchies in 5 Minutes!

    One of my favorite crochet scrunchie patterns, if you are looking for a quick and easy project, or if you are new to crocheting, is the crochet fluffy scrunchie! This one is made primarily with the crochet chain stitch, and it turns out super cute once finished.

    If you are looking for a great place to start, I highly recommend this project!

    The Basic Crochet Stitches

    In the instructions above, I have outlined my preferred stitches used for each crochet scrunchie pattern. However, please keep in mind that you can adjust these stitches if you wish. If you want a project to go faster, you might consider using a double crochet or even a treble crochet stitch rather than a single or half double. Here is a quick overview of how to make each one of these stitches. 

    Single Crochet Stitches. Insert your hook into the next stitch indicated, then yarn over and pull up a loop. Yarn over and pull the new loop through the two loops on your hook to make a single crochet stitch. 

    Half Double Crochet. To make a half-double crochet stitch, first yarn over. Then insert your hook into the stitch indicated. Yarn over and pull up a loop. Yarn over and pull through all three loops on your hook to make a half-double crochet stitch. 

    Double Crochet Stitches. To make a double crochet, first yarn over, then insert your hook into the next stitch indicated. Yarn over and pull up a loop. There are now three loops on your hook. Yarn over and pull through the first two loops. Yarn over again and pull through the last two loops. 

    Treble Crochet Stitch. Making a treble crochet stitch is a little more complicated. First, yarn over twice. Then insert your hook into the next stitch, yarn over, and pull up a loop. Yarn over and pull through the first two loops. Yarn over and pull through the next two loops. Yarn over one last time and pull through the remaining two loops to make a treble crochet stitch. 

    Making Different Sizes

    You can easily change the finished size by adding or subtracting the single crochet stitches created on the first round to make your crochet scrunchies different sizes. This will also impact how ruffled your finished scrunchie is. 

    Different Yarns

    There are many different types of yarn weights and different colors to choose from. For most of these scrunchie patterns, the easiest option is going to be found by using worsted weight yarn. This is a nice medium weight yarn, that is easy to work with. 

    I would not suggest using bulky weight yarn for a detailed project like making crochet scrunchies. The most complicated you will likely want to get is using velvet or baby velvet yarn.

    Crochet Hook Size

    The crochet hook size that you use will also impact the finished size of your crochet scrunchie. A smaller hook is ideal for fine yarns but will also decrease the overall size of your project. 

    I like to use a 4.0 mm size crochet hook, or size G hook when working with thinner yarns so that the stitches aren’t too loose or holy. However, you can reference the skein package, but make sure you feel free to increase or decrease the crochet hook size for what feels right to you.
