Crochet an easy scrunchy in less than an hour using a ponytail band, thread and a hook!
Depending on your skill level and how fast you can crochet, this scrunchy can take anywhere from 30-60 minutes to whip up.
This pattern is very flexible in yarn and hook size. For instance, I crocheted one using a 1.7mm hook and another using a 2.1mm hook and they ended up being the same size.
I used crochet cotton thread size 10 for this scrunchy, but any light weight yarn should work well.
Abbreviations: USA Terminology Used
ch - chain
sl st - slip stitch
sc - single crochet
dc - double crochet
st(s) - stitch(es)
f/o - fasten off
Starting with a slip knot, sl st attach to ponytail band, ch 1 pull tight.
rnd 1: ch 3 (counts as first dc), dc 179 around the ponytail band, sl st join to first dc of rnd. (180 st)
Tip 1: Use stitch markers as you crochet this first rnd to keep track of how many you have done. I like to put one in the first st and then in every multiple of 30.
Tip 2: As you crochet the first rnd, pause to push the stitches back. When you have reached 90 sts, push the stitches back and adjust them so they only take up half of the ponytail band. Continue adjusting them in this fashion until this rnd is finished.
rnd 2: sc in first st, ch 3, skip 2 st, (sc in next st, ch 3, skip 2 st) x 59, sl st join to first sc of rnd. (60 ch 3 spaces)
rnd 3: sl st into first ch space, ch 1, sc into same ch space, ch 3, (sc into next ch space, ch 3) x 59, sl st join to first sc of rnd. (60 ch 3 spaces)
Fasten Off. Weave in ends.
And there you have it. An awesome, easy scrunchy!
