I have been seeing a lot more people using hair scrunchies lately – including my 10 year old daughter! She prefers them to regular hair elastics and hair ties and when I was younger and I had long hair, I also preferred them.

They look great for putting up your messy bun too!

I recently came across some free crochet scrunchie patterns online and I thought maybe you might want to make some this year. They make great gifts. These projects are quick to work up and you can make them in so many colors.

You can even substitute different yarns for many of the scrunchy patterns. I personally prefer cotton yarn in my hair but you can make these scrunchies and hair ties with Medium Weight Yarn (Worsted Weight Yarn), crochet thread, acrylic yarn and even bulky weight yarn. Some patterns even call for Bernat Velvet Yarn and Fun Fur!

How Do You Make Crochet Scrunchies?

There are a couple ways you can make a crochet scrunchie.

  1. Crochet directly around the hair elastic for the first round. So you would enclose the elastic with your first round of crochet stitches.
  2. Crochet your first row of stitches and then place the elastic onto this row of stitches before joining the first and last stitch together. Then for the rest of the scrunchie you would work in joined rounds around the elastic, or in continuous rounds. When done you sew the two edges together.

I have included free crochet patterns using both of these methods below. Some of the scrunchy patterns are suitable for beginners and also include YouTube Video Tutorials.
