This Favourite Hair Scrunchy crochet pattern is so easy! At only two rounds, it is fun to make and a quick gift for family and friends!
I noticed this year at the start of back to school, that hair scrunchies are back in! Maybe they have never gone out of style! One of my children is at the age now when they love to tie their hair back and have it look pretty! Not too long ago they asked if I could crochet them hair scrunchies for them… and all of their friends! So here we are!
In creating the pattern I tried a couple of different methods of making the scrunchy but in the end decided that simple is best. It meant that I could make several scrunchies in different colours in a relatively short amount of time! And the ruffles created in the stitch pattern create a beautiful bow when worn.
This Favourite Hair Scrunchy is only two rounds. The first round is worked around a hair elastic, I chose an “ouchless” thick one for my child’s thicker hair. I decided to work them in the Lion Brand Truboo yarn because of the wide array of colours, the silky smooth feel and the beautiful sheen to it. It really makes for a pretty hair scrunchy! The Truboo yarn is a light weight yarn so you will only need a 4mm crochet hook.
The crochet pattern for my Favourite Hair Scrunchy will be written out below and is free to follow here on my website followed by a free video tutorial. It always will be! However, if you would like to purchase an ad free PDF and add this crochet pattern to your library, you may do so through my Etsy and Ravelry Shops linked below:
