Tutorial: Crochet Hair Scrunchie

Hello friends!

Thank you ever so much for your sweet words on my last post, you made my day!

I just finished my tutorial on how to make a scrunchie and am very happy to share you today. This is also my first attempt to make a tutorial, so please correct me if there are any mistakes. I hope it helps those who are new to crochet! Thank you!


Okay, let's start. What you need is: some cotton thread, 1.8mm crochet hook (or any size that works well with your thread/yarn) and a pony tail band.

Make a slip knot. Insert the hook through the pony tail band, pull thread through the band and the slip knot. 

Pull the thread tightly, like this and you are ready to go. 

Round 1: Chain 3,

Single crochet into the loop.

Continue: chain 3, single crochet into the loop. Repeat all around the hair band. You may need to slide the stitches down to cover the band.

When the stitches all cover the band, join with slip stitch to the first chain-3 space.
  
You've finished round 1. 

Round 2: Single crochet into the same space.   

Chain 3, single crochet into the next chain-3 space. 

Continue all around, like so. Join with slip stitch to the first single crochet.  

Round 3: Single crochet into the first chain-3 space. Chain 3.

Make 5 double crochet into the same space, then make a single crochet into the next chain-3 space.

Continue: Chain 3, make 5 double crochet into the same space and single crochet ino the next space. Repeat all around and join with a slip stitch to the first single crochet. 

There you have it! Enjoy and happy wearing!!
Lovely day to all! ♥

This is cool cute! I am a 'tatter' and have made a few tatting ones, but I am so excited about trying this! Warm weather (today will be 82 degrees in North Texas) so I best get started for the summer!

Very nice, well explained too. I need to ask my DD if she'd like some of these, especially now with warmer weather...gals tend to pull their up more. Making rounds today from Sandy's Space. Hope you're doing well.
