  • US K (6.5mm) hook
  • 1 x Bernat Velvet (100% polyester, bulky #5, 315 yards per skein) OR Premier Parfait (100% polyester, bulky #5, 574 yards per skein)
  • Hair Elastic


  • ch = chain
  • sl st = slip stitch
  • st(s) = stitch(es)
  • sc = single crochet
  • dc = double crochet


  • pattern in US terms
  • gauge: not important


To Start: Grab your elastic, we are going to crochet around it.

Row 1: Create a slip knot on your hook, sl st around elastic, ch 1, sc around the elastic as many times as you can. Sl st to the first sc.

Tip: gently slide the sc down as you go so they are close together.

Row 2: ch 2, place 3-4 dc in each sc. Counting here is not that important as it can get hard to see where you put your last dc. Sl st to the first dc.

Tip: the more dc you have in each sc the fuller the scrunchie will be.

To Finish: Cut yarn, weave in ends.
