I like summer, but with it comes heat! Which can make it hard to crochet big projects. So I look for nice quick crochet projects that you can use cooler softer yarn on. This got me thinking about hair accessories.
I had been making a lot of Crochet Flower Purses at the time and I thought why not use this method of chaining to create a scrunchie. It turned out fantastic! This is my go to scrunchie pattern out of the 4 or 5 I’ve designed. The yarn never gets stuck in your hair, and it always looks great after you put it on.

Go in through the center of the rubber band, pull up some yarn, and then grab more yarn to complete you first sc. Tighten up the stitch to the rubber band if you can.
Now continue around, single crocheting and hiding you rubber band. Keep pushing your stitches tighter against one another, but not to tight where you won’t be able to work with them later on.
When you get to the end of the row, sl st and ch 10, sl st into the same st, ch 10, sl st into same st, ch 10 and sl st into the same stitch total of 3 connections in the st, then ch 10 and sl st into next stitch (this counts as first connection) ch 10 and sl st into same stitch, (second connection) ch 10 and sl st into same stitch for your third and final connection into this stitch, now ch 10 and sl st into next st and repeat, making sure you have 3 connections per stitch. Continue all the way around to beginning, where you will sl st to beginning ch 2 and ch1, cut yarn. And enjoy!
