How to Crochet Scrunchies

These crochet scrunchies are so stinking cute and perfect to amp up any outfit. They are also extremely easy and quick to make!

The scrunchies are made by crocheting around a basic hair tie. You can use thick ones or thin ones- I prefer thin ones but it’s all up to you. You can easily adjust your # of stitches around the tie if your tie is bigger/smaller. I will explain more on that in the pattern, below.

The supplies you will need to make crochet scrunchies are:

-Worsted Weight Yarn (in your choice of color)

-5mm Crochet Hook

-Yarn Needle


-Hair Elastic



Abbreviations/Stitches Used:

-Single Crochet (sc)

-Double Crochet (dc)

-Slip Stitch (sl st)

-Chain (ch)

Notes- *ch 3, does not count as a stitch.

Round 1:

Attach yarn to hair tie and make 40 sc around hair tie (the same as you would in a magic circle). Stitches will be very close together towards the end, push them over as you go. If your hair tie is bigger and your stitches are not very close together, you can add more stitches. Sl st into first sc of round. Ch 3.

Round 2:

Make 2 dc in each st around. Sl st into first dc of round. Fasten off, weave in ends.

And that’s it! Super simple and easy to adjust. Hope you enjoy!

How to Crochet in the Round

Crocheting in the round is a method used for crocheting items such as hats, stuffed animals, granny squares, bags, and a multitude of other items. Learning how to crochet in the round will broaden your ability to create products. Many people use a magic ring to start their round, but for a beginner, it’s easier to start with a chain as your ring.

Different patterns will instruct your number of chains to be different and other type of stitches may be used as well, but the technique will still be the same.

You will need:

#4 Worsted Weight Yarn (Light in color and not textured will be the easiest to learn with)

5mm Crochet Hook


Start with a slip knot on your hook


  1. Chain 4
  2. Slip stitch into the first chain you made. This creates a circle.
  3. Chain 1. (This is to increase your height for the next row. It is not a stitch, you will not work into it.)
  4. Make 6 single crochet into your circle. *Pull your loop up through the middle of the circle, not into the chains.
  5. Slip stitch into the first single crochet that you made.

The rest will now be worked into the top of your stitches like normal.

You have just crocheted the first round! To do the second round:

  • Chain 1
  • Make 2 single crochet into every stitch around. (Total of 12 single crochet at the end of this round)
  • Slip stitch into the first single crochet of that round.

That’s it! You’ve just learned to crochet in the round. The pattern that you’re following will give you the specific number of stitches and the type of stitches to use but it will all be similar to this technique.

Happy Crocheting!!
