Crochet Scrunchie Pattern

Today I wanted to give you all the crochet scrunchie pattern that I’ve been using for my velvet scrunchies. Remember scrunchies? The 10-year-old entrepreneur in me would sew scrunchies back in the day and sell them to my friends for $1 a piece. I was on my way to big business. (Speaking of. . .have you seen how much scrunchies sell for these days?!?)

A scrunchie cool enough to make any VSCO girl happy. They are soft, and I love the way that the velvet yarn enhances the look. It’s honestly my very favorite pattern to make with velvet yarn. If you haven’t tried the velvet yarn out yet, you must! It’s one of those yarns that people either seem to love or hate. . .but I love it for this project!

Crochet Hair Scrunchie

Crochet Scrunchie Pattern

Skill Level:

This pattern uses basic beginner stitches.


  • Bernat Velvet Yarn (Color shown is Gray Orchid)
  • Size H/8 5.00mm Crochet Hook
  • Hair Elastic Bands (with no metal)
  • Scissors
  • Yarn Needle



ch = chain
sl st = slip stitch
sc = single crochet
dc = double crochet




Not Needed For This Project


Make a slip knot.

With your slip knot not on your crochet hook, slide the elastic over the yarn. Then, slide the loop onto your crochet hook. This will position your elastic perfectly for crocheting.

Ch 1 to secure the yarn onto your elastic.

Sc all the way around the elastic. Again, I don’t do an exact count because I feel like each elastic band size is different. I single crochet around the band until I can stretch the elastic lightly and not see the band beneath easily.

Note: I also sc over the tail to help not have to weave in so many ends later.

Sl st to original ch 1 at the end of the row, being careful not the twist the yarn (all sc stitches should be pointed outward).

Ch 3. This will be your first double crochet. Dc into the same stitch again. Continue around the band doing 2 dc into each of the tops of the sc from the previous row.

Sl st to beginning ch 3 to finish the row.

Finish off and weave in ends.

Care Instruction:

Hand wash, lay flat to dry.
