It’s me, Jessica with Nice and Knotty.
As you may know, scrunchies are cool again. They are everywhere. My 8-year-old daughter has been into scrunchies lately and even requested some as a gift for her recent birthday. So, I thought I’d make her one in her favorite color. I love how it turned out and best of all, so did she! It is such a simple pattern, but it looks very feminine and delicate because of the yarn type.
WHAT MATERIALS DO I NEED TO CROCHET a SCRUNCHIE?
- Small Amount of Worsted Weight #4 Yarn – I used Lion Brand Feels Like Butta Yarn in Dusty Pink
- G6/4mm crochet hook
- 8-inch elastic piece
- Safety pin
- Yarn needle
- Easy and Feminine Scrunchie, Paid Crochet Pattern from SelinaVeronique via Etsy
This was my first time using the Lion Brand Feels Like Butta yarn and I have to say, I LOVE it! It is so soft! It’s very easy to work with and even though it’s so soft, it’s not so much that I felt like it wasn’t strong enough to hold up to the task. I think you could use other yarns, but I think the yarn needs to be soft otherwise it will look and feel a little harsh.
Additionally, I must admit that I used a little longer strand of elastic because I wanted the scrunchie to have a little more room since my daughter has thick hair.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO CROCHET a SCRUNCHIE?
The scrunchie took me about an hour and a half to complete. It is a very simple stitch and works up very quickly! It would be very easy to make up a whole bunch of these scrunchies in an assortment of colors!
The measurement for the scrunchie is 4 inches across by 16.5 inches long before sewing the ends together to form the circle for the scrunchie.
There is no gauge given for this pattern. My personal gauge is a length of 16.5 inches prior to sewing the ends together.
This scrunchie was so fast and easy to make! The pattern is well written, and it even includes a link to the video for it. However, I didn’t need to use the video tutorial since the written version was done so well.
I want to make a bunch in all kinds of colors! I think they would make great little gifts (or stocking stuffers for the upcoming Christmas season!) or even a way to customize matching your hairpieces to an outfit. Scrunchies have definitely made a comeback so don’t fight it and whip up a few of these yourself! 😊
