Who doesn’t love scrunchies? I loved them as a little girl growing up in the 90’s and I am thrilled they’ve come back in fashion! They make a great gift for young girls, daughters, nieces, and even as a gift for yourself!

Best of all, they are so quick and easy to crochet. You can easily make a few while binge-watching your favorite show. I mean, it is Game of Thrones season after all!

This pattern is specifically for velvet yarn, but feel free to play around with other kinds of yarns! Velvet is my favorite for scrunchies so far – it is just so soft!

I would love to see your final products after trying this pattern! Feel free to share with me on Facebook and/or Instagram!
