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.
Crochet Hair Scrunchies
Step1: Tie a knot onto the rubber hairband.
Step2: Crochet 6 chains.
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.
