Velvet Scrunchie Crochet Pattern

Velvet seems to be all the rage right now and I will tell you why! This yarn is some of the softest “yarn” I have ever touched! ITS SERIOUSLY SOOOO SOFT! Like, go pet this yarn if you don’t believe me. This is the Bernat Velvet yarn and its sold at both Joann Fabrics and Michaels, so its easily accessible!

Because I love this yarn, and you guys so much, I wanted to make this scrunchie my gift to you this holiday season. I think these are absolutely perfect for stocking stuffers and for quick, selfish gifts too!

You will find the pattern below, happy making!



– A wee bit of Bernat Velvet Yarn (I’m not sure on the exact amount, I would say about 50 yards or less)

-5.5 mm crochet hook

-Scissors, Yarn Needle

-Hair Band (I used these hairbands!)


The Pattern:

Make a slipknot and put your hook into the hole created.

Take the hairband and SC around the hairband, filling the hairband with stitches until you can no longer see the hair tie. Push the stitches together a few times to ensure that you have fit as many stitches as possible onto the hairband.

Once you come back around to your first stitch, slip stitch to it.

Now, CH 2. Place 3 DCs into the first stitch of the first row. Then, place 3 DC into each stitch around. (This is what will cause the scrunchie to ruffle!)

When you reach your CH2, slip stitch to the top chain and finish off.

Weave in your ends, being sure to knot them well.

You’re all done!

Congrats on your super fast scrunchie!! These scrunchies make the perfect quick gifts, whether you give it for someone’s hair or just as arm candy. 😉
