For this project you’ll need:
YARN: worsted weight yarn 4 ply US or 10 ply AU or you can use light 3 worst weight (8 ply) if you would like a smaller one.
Hook: 5 mm hook / H hook
Also you will need some plan old rubber bands, with a cover over them, so that you can crochet over them, a plan rubber band wouldn’t have enough strength to be able to work with very easy. So get some like you see below, that already come with some sort of cover.
Ch = chain
sc = single crochet
dc = double crochet
sl st = slip stitch
st(s) = Stitch(es)
sp = Space

To start, take your 3.5mm hook and attach your yarn to your hook, then insert your cook, through the rubber bank, draw up a loop, then yarn over and pull through both loops to complete your sc.
Continue to sc until you have your rubber band covered, pulling down your stitches along the rubber band to make the sts snug together, but not to tight where you warp the rubber band. Sl st into beginning st
Ch 2 (this will count as first st) in next st and all sts around do a DC. Unless you want to make your scrunchie smaller, then skip to round 3. sl st into the top of the beginning ch 2 sp
ch 9, then in the third chain from the hook, do a DC, next st do a DC,
Then next two sts put a HDC, then next 2 sts put a SC, then last st do a sl st, then sl st into the same space where you started.
Then ch 9 again and repeat dc, dc, hdc, hdc, sc, sc, sl, but this time sl st into the next st to the left, and repeat dc, dc, hdc, hdc, sc, sc, sl, sl in same st, then dc, dc, hdc, hdc, sc, sc, sl, then sl st into next st to the left. Leaving 2 connections in each st
Each petal should look like this
(dc, dc, hdc, hdc, sc, sc, sl)
Continue all the way around til you get to last st, in the last st, sl st and ch 1, leaving a little tail, cut your yarn. Work your tail into the back sts of the petals and pull tight to hide well, then cut any remaining tail unhidden. And enjoy!
