crochet hair scrunchies
I was doing some housekeeping in my craft room last few days, only to find out that I have so many leftover yarns from my previous knitting and crocheting projects, oh dear!!! What am I going to do with them, I can’t just throw them away? They are neither enough to knit into garments, nor I can combine all of them to make one…. the colors are just “repulsive” when coming together. Since I am keeping long hair, why not make them into some hairbands!!!! You know, time is bad and I have to save a little when coming to handicraft :p

I took some rubber hairbands and started to crochet, just a simple pattern. With a combination of some yarns, I have made a few of hair scrunchies in just an hour 🙂 I also showed the yarns I used for each hair scrunchies I have made.

My daughter likes the pink hair scrunchies the best but her hair is too short to put them on. I let her keep it, she can use it when her hair is long enough 🙂

If you want to try one, you just need to prepare some yarns, 5mm (8/0) crochet hook and a rubber hairband. Follow the photos and the instruction written just below the photo, you should be able to get one done very fast.

Step3: Double crochet onto the rubber hairband.

Step4: Crochet another 3 chains.

Repeat Step 3 and 4 until you fill-up the whole ring of the rubber hairband. Join the end to the 3rd chains of the start point with slip stitches, bind off and hide the yarn-end, and you are done 🙂 Pretty simple, right!
Hope you enjoy crochet it and match it with your knitted or crocheted work.

Beautiful scrunchies! What size hook do you use and what yarn are you using? I particularly like the white fuzzy one and the blue with green dots in it. Thank you so much for sharing :)

I used various yarn with matching hook size that recommended on the label of the yarn. The gold crochet hook is 3.5mm hook.

Love these scrunchies! I have a ton of hair ties laying around that I don't wear because the color is weird so now I can make scrunchies from them! Took me barely any time to make one and was so easy, thank you so much :)
