These scrunchies are super soft and addicting to make! They look adorable in ponytails or as wristbands, and they’re great for gift giving. ♡


I’ve tried a few different techniques for making velvet scrunchies, and after testing them all out this one was by far my favorite. You can easily make a scrunchie by just crocheting directly around a hair tie, but I found that the stitches start to look messy after wearing it a few times. So I made this pattern instead; these velvet scrunchies are still super easy to make and hold up very well so they will continue looking beautiful no matter how many times you use them.

My velvet scrunchies are made using Bernat Velvet yarn. This is a bulky weight velvet yarn that creates a soft, luxurious texture. These scrunchies will be constructed by simply crocheting a long rectangle and then sewing it around a hair tie. The velvet yarn is perfect to use because you can’t even see the seam, it blends right into the stitches!


Each scrunchie will not require much yarn. This pattern is perfect for using up leftover yarn from other projects. I love, love, love velvet yarn and will be writing more patterns with this yarn super soon! Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter to get notified when new patterns are available.

Now we’re going to sew this piece onto the elastic. You can use any elastic but its easiest to just use a hair tie. I recommend using a thicker hair tie, because the thin ones will stretch out too much. You want the elastic to stay nice and tight, so if you are using a thin hair tie, I suggest doubling up.

Hair ties, to use for assembly of velvet scrunchies crochet pattern

Fold the crocheted piece in half and whipstitch along the short ends to connect them.

Wrap the crocheted piece around the elastic and sew the ends of each row together with a whipstitch. You will have to scrunch the fabric up a little bit as you sew to fit it all around the hair tie.

Tie both tails together and pull them into the scrunchie with your crochet hook. Cut the tails off close to the knot and tuck it into your scrunchie.
