I’m aware that I'm not re-inventing the wheel here, but for those of you that need a quick pattern and a few tricks, this tutorial is perfect. Written in layman's terms(With abbreviations in parentheses) with photographs this will get you making you scrunchies all year long. I also suggest if you are a real beginner to try looking up terms on google or youtube(that’s how I perfected my skills).
You will need:
-Velvet yarn (I used Bernat Velvet in “Indigo”
-Crochet Hook (i used my furls odyssey, H)
2. Create a slip knot
3. Single crochet (sc) onto hair tie and chain 2
4. Triple Crochet (TC) around hair tie until it is full ( If you need a number, keep track of your first and go from there!)
If you’d like to count that’s certainly up to you, I’ve just learned counting isn’t necessary. Each scrunchie is unique (like in nature lol).
Tip- when you've crochet around, continue to pull stitches along hair tie to create more space and to make scrunchie feel more full..
5. When scrunchie is at its desired fullness, cut yarn and slip stitch (slst) to your chain two space.
Pull through and secure with a single knot (even a double knot if you wish).
6.Weave in ends
(Here’s where I’d like to offer advice for those of you who have made them before.).
Take your darning needle(photo shows two for reference) and weave in ends along the length of the stitches.
These are a big seller for me at shows and the first thing people do is pull on them. So when you ends are woven in side to side(as opposed to up and down) they could become visible
Weave in end ⅔ times
Trim your tails
