I am a product of the 1990's so when I saw that Scrunchies were making a comeback I just knew I had to share the nostalgia and make some for my daughter!
Velvet yarn is trending right now and what could be more 1990's than a velvet scrunchie? I stumbled upon Lion Brand's new Go for Faux yarn and decided to make some faux fur scrunchies as well!
Grab a Surge, turn on Full House, and scroll down to get the free pattern!
Fun Fact: You can in fact grab a Surge today! It's back!!

As I mentioned above hair scrunchies were everything in the 1990's Here are just a few of my favorite examples!
You will need a 6.00 mm crochet hook, velvet/faux fur yarn, scissors, and some sturdy hair ties! Here are my amazon picks:
-Sl st: slip stitch
-Sc: single crochet
-Dc: double crochet
The pattern is the same for both versions of the scrunchie. The only difference is the yarn you use. You can use any brand of velvet or faux fur yarn you would like. I have found success with both Yarn Bee's Velvety Smooth and Lion Brand's VEL-LUXE. I highly recommend Lion Brand's Go for Faux yarn! (NOT a sponsor I just found the yarn extremely easy to work with compared to other fur yarns I have used in the past.) The ch 1/ch 2 does not count as a stitch in this pattern.
Gauge & Yardage:
The gauge is not important in this pattern. Just keep your tension consistent and have fun with it! You will need around 25 yards of whichever yarn you choose for your project. One skein will make several scrunchies!
Use a sl st to join your yarn onto your hair tie.
Round 1: Place 25 sc around your hair tie. Sl st into the 1st sc to join. (If this does not cover all of your elastic feel free to add more sc around your hair tie as needed.)
Round 2: Ch 2. Place 3 dc into the same st. Then place 3 dc into each remaining st of the round. Sl st into the 1st dc to join.
Weave in your ends! Your scrunchie is complete!
