Free Crochet Scrunchie Pattern – Pattern Notes

Crochet terminology used: US crochet terminology

Difficulty level: beginner crochet skills and knowledge

Completed size: this will vary depending on the size of the hair tie used and yarn weight; my scrunchie is 9cm (3.5 inches) outside diameter

Language: only available in English

 

Free Crochet Scrunchie Pattern – Materials and Tools Needed

Yarn: this pattern will work nicely with 100% cotton, 100% acrylic or a blend. I recommend using this weight: Fine Sport #2 = 4 ply OR Light Worsted #3 = DK

I used:

– Fine Sport #2 = 4 ply / 55% cotton and 45% acrylic blend

– 1x ball of multicoloured yarn – YarnArt Jeans – colour 80 – (50g/160m)

– 1x ball of dark purple yarn – YarnArt Jeans – colour 62 – (50g/160m)

– 1x ball of light purple yarn – YarnArt Jeans – colour 62 – (50g/160m)

 

Crochet hook: I used 3mm = C/2 but refer to the instructions on your yarn label if using different weight of yarn. I recommend this crochet hook set that includes many crochet hook sizes but also yarn needles, stitch markers and other handy bits.

Tools used: scissors, yarn needle

Hair tie: you can use a hair tie of any size or thickness; I recommend choosing either a smaller and thicker hair tie that you wrap around your hair just once or a bigger but thinner hair tie that you can wrap around your hair multiple times. I used a smaller and thicker tie – 4.5cm (1.75 inches) outside diameter, just like this one.

DC: double crochet stitch – yarn over, insert your hook into the next stitch, yarn over, pull up a loop so you now have three loops on the hook. Yarn over, pull through two loops, yarn over, pull through remaining two loops.

FO: fasten off

{…}: number shown inside these brackets equals the number of total stitches at the end of each round

 

Start with Your Free Crochet Scrunchie Pattern

You will crochet the scrunchie in a circle around the hair tie. So when working on R1 you will insert the hook inside the tie and will crochet the stitches around it. But don’t worry, I will show you how in my video tutorial below. 🙂

Pattern:

R1:

– create a slip knot on your crochet hook

– insert your hook inside the hair tie, yarn over and pull the yarn through the inside of the hair tie and SC

– SC all around the hair tie

– you may have gaps in between the stitches so make sure to push the stitches to the side so they are close to each other; you want the stitches to be very dense so you don’t have large gaps between them when you stretch the tie

– once your hair tie is completely covered by the stitches, SS into first ST of R1

– the total number of stitches in this round will vary depending on the size of your hair tie but make sure you have an even number of stitches (I had 60 STs in this round)

R2:

– CH 3x – this starting chain will count as your first DC in this round

– 2x DC into the ST at the base of the starting CH

– 2x DC in next ST, 3x DC in next ST and continue all the way round taking turns between 3x DC in one stitch and 2x DC in another stitch – you should end the round with 2x DC in the last stitch (do not crochet into the slip stitch)

– SS into the 3rd CH of the starting CH from this round

 

R3:

– CH 3x – this starting chain will count as your first DC in this round

– 2x DC into the ST at the base of the starting CH
