I made these velvet scrunchies using Bernat Velvet yarn. This bulky-weight velvet yarn 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!
Of course, you can substitute with many different brands and types of yarn! One of the closest alternatives I’ve found to Bernat Velvet is Premier Yarns Retro Velvet.
Each scrunchie will not require much yarn. This pattern is perfect for using up leftover yarn from other projects.
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.
CROCHET HOOK: 5.5mm
YARN: Velvet yarn, bulky weight 5
Recommended: Bernat Velvet (Less than 1 ball needed – approximately 24yds per scrunchie)
OTHER: Elastic hair tie, yarn needle, scissors
Recommended: I use Goody Ouchless hair ties for medium hair and have found that they hold up well without stretching out or snapping!
2” x 2” (5cm x 5cm) swatch = 7 sts x 5 rows
Before sewing crocheted piece around hair tie
LENGTH: Approximately 15” (38cm)
WIDTH: Approximately 2” (5cm)
|Hdc||Half double crochet|
- This is an easy/beginner level crochet pattern
- Pattern written in US crochet terms
- The stitch count at the end of each row is shown in parenthesis ( )
- The ch 1 at the beginning of each row does not count as a stitch.
The stitch used in this pattern is a basic HDC, but it will be worked between the posts.
Row 1: Hdc in 2nd ch from hook. Hdc in each ch across. (6)
Row 2: Ch 1, turn. Hdc 1 between each st. (6)
Rows 3 – 44: Repeat row 2
Cut the yarn (leaving a long tail, about 35-40in, that will be used to sew the crocheted piece around the hair tie), fasten off.
Now we’re going to sew this piece onto the elastic. You can use any elastic but it’s super easy 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.
I use Goody Ouchless hair ties for medium hair and have found that they hold up very well without stretching out or snapping, which is especially important if you plan on selling your scrunchies!
Fold the crocheted piece in half and whipstitch along the short ends to connect them.
Then, 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. Then, cut the tails off close to the knot and tuck it into your scrunchie.
