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:

Materials

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