Chain Scrunchie Free Crochet Pattern and Tutorial – Chain Scrunchy

These Chain Scrunchies are so easy to make! It uses the most basic stitches. All you need is scrap yarn and a rubber band.

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 scrunchy. It turned out fantastic! This is my go to scrunchy pattern out of the 4 or 5 scrunchies I’ve designed. The yarn never gets stuck in your hair, and it always looks great after you put it on.
