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 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. :)
