  • 6.5 mm “K” crochet hook

  • Tapestry Needle 
  • Elastic
  • Scissors

Sizing (after blocking):

  • 4 inches wide
  • 13 inches long (before seaming) 

Abbreviations and Tutorial Links:


Ch 12, join in the furthest chain with a slip stitch to create a ring.

Round 1: Ch 1, then work a sc into each ch.  Join to close round with a slip stitch.

Round 2: Ch 1, then work a sc into each stitch.  Join to close round with a slip stitch.

Repeat round 2 until piece measures about 13 inches from beginning.  For a bigger or “slouchier” scrunchie, make it a little taller.

Cut elastic the length of your crochet tube.  Slide it through the tube.  Scrunch the crochet tube down and tie the elastic.  Seam the ends of the tube together and weave in ends.  All finished!
