The most difficult part of making a velvet scrunchy is securing the ends. If you don’t get them secure then every time you stretch the band you will have ends coming out. To avoid this frustration, I recommend knotting the yarn around the hairband leaving a long tail. You will thank me later!
Once the end of the yarn is secure create a loop on your crochet hook.
Basic Velvet Scrunchy
Ch2, DC 60 around Band, SLST into the top of the ch2. F/O leaving a long tail to secure.
Using a large needle weave the tail through the last DC toward the band and the beginning tail.
Tie beginning tail and ending tail together in a knot. Using a large needle weave the ending chain through a stitch to pull the knot to the inside. Cut tails.
Ruffle Velvet Scrunchy
Secure yarn to hair band using instructions from above.
Row 1: Ch1, SC 40 around Band, SLST into the first stitch, ch2 (40)
Row 2: *2DC, 3DC* repeat pattern around, SLST into ch2, F/O leaving a long tail. (100)
Secure the tail using the instructions from the Basic Velvet Scrunchy.
Happy Crocheting! I look forward to seeing your scrunchies! ~ Carol
