Quick & Easy Crochet Scrunchie Pattern

Check out this quick and easy crochet scrunchie pattern!  I designed velvet ballet slippers before Christmas and made a few pairs in Mary Maxim’s Baby Plush. From 1 ball I was able to make a pair of slippers with some left over.

I have a hard time letting any left over yarn go to waste so decided a scrunchie would use up the leftover yarn perfectly! For $3.99 Cdn per ball you can’t go wrong! Slippers and a scrunchie make the perfect gift for any age!

Notes: Scrunchie is worked around elastic hair band as you go. Starting ch doesn’t count as a stitch. If a wider scrunch is desired increase starting chain.


Setup Round: Ch 6, sl st in first ch to form a ring around elastic hair band—6 chs.

Round 1: Ch 2 (not included as st here and throughout), work 1 hdc in each ch around, sl st in first hdc to join—6 sts.

Round 2: Ch 2, work 1 hdc in each st around, sl st in first hdc to join—6 sts.

Rounds 3-24: Rep Round 2

Notes: Rep Round 2 until entire band is worked around when stretched out to maximum stretch.  This may vary for different brands.


Fasten off leaving a tail for seaming. Use a whip stitch or mattress stitch to seam starting chain to last row of work.  Weave in end.
