Quick & Easy Crochet Scrunchie Pattern

Sharing is caring!

Quick and easy crochet scrunchie pattern!  Free crochet pattern and video tutorial. If you’re looking for a quick and trendy crochet pattern, scrunchies are it. They’re a perfect gift or item to sell at markets.

You can crochet these scrunchies with any bulky weight yarn but I think they’re really great made in velvet. They’re soft and can easily wrap around a ponytail twice.

Using a bulky weight yarn allows for the pattern to work up quickly, but you can use worsted weight and add a few more chains to the starting round around the elastic band. Bernat Velvet has a wide range of colours to choose from, but you can use any brand you like!

I use these scrunchies to make the perfect bun. The scrunchie holds my thick and heavy hair perfectly. Watch on TikTok or Instagram
