Velvet Scrunchies – Free Pattern

Velvet Scrunchies

Its been a while again! In all fairness to me I have been away on holiday for 2 weeks, and the build up before going was quite busy. I didn’t get much crochet done on holiday either! Anyway, I am back!

Whilst I was away I had noticed a couple of other crocheters crocheting velvet scrunchies. My daughter is a massive fan of the old 90’s hair scrunchie, to be honest I cannot believe they are back in fashion!! She had spotted me looking at these velvet scrunchies and didn’t believe me when I said I would make her some.

We went to our local Hobbycraft yesterday for our knitcraft social, and I spotted some Velvet yarn she chose the silver colour, it is only £4.10 per ball and I have literally used 50% of it and so far made 4 scrunchies. I have designed 2 simple patterns for you below. Abby said the bigger the scrunchie the better! So heres 2:

Medium sized Scrunchie

Materials

20g (to be on the safe side) James C Brett Flutterby chunky

6mm hook

darning needle for sewing in ends

scissors

eleastic hair band

Round 1 – Work 50 dc around the elastic band (its a bit of a squeeze, just keep pushing the sts to the side) join with a slst to the first dc. (50dc)

Round 2 – Ch3 (counts as 1tr), work 1tr in the same st, work 2tr in each st around, Join with slst to top of beg 3rd ch (100 tr) fasten off work and weave in loose ends

C2C Preemie Baby Blanket

Good morning!! Last night I crocheted a Preemie Baby Blanket, just something nice and simple, you know, good TV crochet!

My blanket measures 12×12, dinky I know, but its the perfect size for a 1-2lb baby, just perfect. I am a fairly fast crocheter so I did complete this in under 3 hours. Yours may measure more or less, as we all have different tensions.

You can use any dk weight yarn, and a 4mm hook and I only used about 70g, for this pattern I have used Stylecraft Bambino which is super soft, it splits a little but the stitch definition and the texture of the yarn out weighs the fact it splits.

You can also make your blanket as big as you fancy by starting to decrease as and when the height/width of your blanket is how you want it.

If you have never tried C2C before, it stands for Corner to Corner, where we start in one corner and work along the diagonal to the other corner.

Row 1 – Ch6 (counts as a Ch3 and 1TR) 1tr in the fourth ch from the hook and in each of the next 2ch to the end. Turn work (1 pixel has been created)

Row 2 – Ch6 (counts as ch3 and 1tr), 1tr in fourth ch from the hook and in each of the next 2ch (another pixel created), sl st in the space created by the ch3 at the top of the pixel of row 1, ch3, 3tr in same ch3 space as the sl st, turn work (2 pixels created)

Row 3 – Ch6 (counts as ch3 and 1tr), 1 tr in fourth ch from the hook and in each of the next 2 ch to complete another pixel, sl st into the ch3 space at the top of the last pixel from Row two, ch3, 3tr in same ch3 space as the sl st, sl st in ch3 space at the top of the next pixel, ch3, 3tr in same ch3 space as the sl st, turn work. (3 pixels)

Row 4 – Ch6 (counts as ch3 and 1tr), 1tr in fourth ch from the hook and in each of the next 2ch to complete another pixel, sl st in the ch3 space at the top of the last pixel worked from previous row, *ch3, 3tr in same ch3 space as sl st, sl st in ch3 space at the top of the next pixel; rep from * until you have worked a sl st in the ch3 sp of the last block of the previous row, ch3, 3tr in the same ch3 sp as the sl st, turn work. (4 pixels)

Row 5-19 Repeat Row 4 (19 pixels)

We will now start to decrease our work on each row, from now on the number of pixels you work will become less

Row 20 – Sl st into each of the next 3tr, sl st into ch3 space, *ch3, (3tr in the same ch3 space as the sl st, sl st in ch3 space at the top of the next pixel) rep from * until you have worked a sl st in the ch3 sp of the last pixel of the previous row, ch3, 3tr in the same ch3 sp as the sl st, turn work.

Row 21 – Repeat Row 20 until you finish your last pixel. Do not fasten off.

Edging

Round 1 – Ch1 and work 1dc in tr, and 2dc into the side of each pixel, the main thing is to make sure you dc’s are spaced evenly, I included a ch2 for the corners, slst into the Ch1 to join.

Round 2 – *Ch3, Slst into the 1st ch (picot created), sk the next st, slst into the next* Repeat all the way around joining with a slst into the dc from Round 1

Happy Hooking
