True Blue Crochet Scrunchie: Sunny Days Crochet Collection
Quick and easy, the True Blue crochet scrunchie will be easy to hook up, and add some summer fun to your summer outfits. I’m one of those girls who always wears my hair down, but summer temperatures do call for hair to be worn up in order to stay cooler. And one of my fav things to crochet when I was young was a scrunchie hair tie. Those have long since been used up, and I decided it was time to hook up another one–with a twist.
The twist is a simple one; I’ve used two colours of yarn! It’s nothing exciting but it added an element to the scrunchie that those I’ve made in the past didn’t have. I chose two shades of blue, and I think they look lovely together. You could also consider contrasting colours, or keep it simple and chose a colour that matches your hair so it looks more natural. Though I do urge you to have some fun and pick a bright colour!
You’ll need some Bernat Handicrafter yarn. I recommend this because it’s cotton and adds a smoother feel to the finished project. Plus, they come in so many bright colours. I love colour, and something this simple needs colour in my opinion. You’ll also obviously need a hair tie. I recommend using whichever brand you prefer as hair types vary. I especially love this hair tie as it’s not only useful to throw back your hair in a ponytail, but also to adore a bun.
True Blue Scrunchie Pattern
2 skeins of Bernat Handicrafter yarn
5.00mm (H) hook
Stitches (US Terms)
The number of stitches will depend on the size of your hair tie, so a stitch size is not given.
Row 1: Begin by wrapping your yarn over your hook as you would a yarn over. Create a standing stitch and then dc your way around the hair tie, pushing back the stitches to get a wavy effect with the stitches. Slst to the standing stitch, changing colours here.
Row 2: Now, single crochet into each double crochet and join with a slip stitch at the end of the round. Fasten off and weave in loose ends.
You’re all done! A five minute project and now you can throw up your hair and talk a walk around town. I hope you’ve enjoyed the Sunny Days Crochet Collection so far. It’s proved both fun and challenging for me and given me some ideas for the future, which I hope I can share with you soon. More about that later!
