The Velvet Scrunchie is the softest hair accessory ever. It’s a beginner friendly pattern that makes a perfect scrunchie to keep or give away.
You’ll start working the scruchie as a simple rectangle. This rectangle is made from alternating stitched. Once the rectangle is complete you will single crochet the length closed over an elastic band.
This scrunchie is designed with an alternating sc/dc stitch for a blended look that diffuses the lines between rows.
