I am so excited for you to try this straightforward and super fast crochet hair scrunchie pattern!
Uses a Beginner-Friendly stitch!
This scrunchie is made using just the simple double crochet or as it is sometimes referred to as the DC! If you can crochet this stitch then you are good to go.
To start the scrunchie you will need to attach the yarn to a hair tie which you can find a tutorial about on Youtube. (Don’t forget to subscribe!)
After you attach the yarn with a DC, you will DC around the hair tie for the remainder of the pattern to create your new scrunchie! You can be creative with this design by adding more or less DC that it calls for depending on your preference. Have fun with it!
This hair tie scrunchie is worked up using Lion Brand Yarn’s Terry Spun in Ice and Basic Stitch Anti-Pilling in Frost. To achieve a fluffy soft feel I held both of these together at the same time while I worked around the hairband.
I will link up the yarns below so you can take a look at them and maybe choose your new scrunchie colors! YAY! I can’t wait to see the color combinations everyone comes up with.

The entire pattern is worked holding two strands of yarn together at the same time: Terryspun & Basic Stitch.
To Begin: Attach yarn to hair tie with an SC. You can use this video tutorial here if you need help with this part or view the picture tutorial below.
DC approximately 150 times around more or less. You will want the yarn to start to “scrunch” up. Again this amount will depend on the size of the hair tie. Use your best judgment on this part.
Next: SL ST into the top of the first DC of the round.
Finishing: To finish the pattern fasten off the yarn and use a yarn needle to weave in the loose ends securely.
