Easy Crochet Scrunchie

As a vendor of local markets sometimes I get the feeling I don't have many products and I always try to find something fast and easy to make just a few days before. Scrunchies have been trendy for some time already and to be honest I wasn't a huge fan of them. Well, I tried one just for fun. I found a great chunky soft yarn so I knew it would work up pretty fast and I absolutely loved it and made a few of them.

Here they are. Chunky, soft and you have them done in 10 mins or even less. Also, they are popular on the markets. So if you are also a part of the craft shows, it's a great project.

If you'd like to see my another pattern for scrunchie, don't hesitate to visit this link.

For a bundle of 2 crochet patterns for the scrunchies, go to my Etsy where you can purchase ad free and printable pattern.

If you enjoy my crochet content but you don't feel like to purchase my patterns it's absolutely ok.:) That's why my patterns are free on my blog so it can be available for everyone!

There's also another way though how to support my work with Buy Me a Coffee (my version is Buy Me Yarn, you know why:) ). It cost you even less than my actual patterns. You can check the link above or the button below for more details.

BIG THANKS for everyone who supports me by purchases, likes, shares, comments, tags or/and feedbacks! It means a lot to me.

If you prefer video tutorial to written pattern I've got you covered! I have a YouTube video tutorial with this pattern so feel free to check it out right here on my YouTube channel.

This pattern is very easy and very forgiving. You don't need to count your stitches so any miscounting is very well hidden.

What you need for this scrunchie:

  • Yarn - I use from Bernat Blanket Yarn

  • Hook size - 8mm/L-11

  • Elastics (I ordered them from Amazon and they work well)

  • Scissors, Yarn Needle


Ch - chain

SC - single crochet

DC - double crochet

St - stitch

Sl St - slip stitch


  • Grab the elastic and your first row you work around it.

Row 1 - Make 1 ch and then SC around the elastic. There's no specific number of sts. I usually fit around 30SC but if you make less or more it's ok.

Once you hit your first SC, try to make more space on the elastic to make more SC. When you can't make any sts, Sl St to your first SC.

Row 2 - Make 2 chains (count as a first DC). Into the next st *2 DC, 2DC, 1 DC*. Repeat from * to * until the end of the row. Sl St into your first DC (top 2nd ch) and secure the scrunchie.

Grab your yarn needle and weave in the ends. Ta-da! Your scrunchie is ready to wear. :)

Please note, this pattern is very forgiving and if you make a mistake with DC and make 2, 1, 2 instead of 2, 2, 1 or any different order it's absolutely ok. You should always get the scrunchie look. :)
