Crochet Feminine & Easy Scrunchie
Hi everyone, this week I wanted to bring you a tutorial on how to crochet a feminine and easy scrunchie. This is a great project for beginners. It is my new scrunchie design. I love crochet scrunchies. I have already designed quite a few. These scrunchies are made using different techniques. I have been wanting to release a new and recent scrunchie tutorial.
The video tutorial can be found here:
Crochet Feminine & Easy Scrunchie: a fresh design
This new crochet scrunchie is a fresh and updated version. It is crocheted using cotton yarn. To begin with, a long cotton rectangle is crocheted. The rectangle is then folded in half and stitched. An elastic band is then inserted into the stitched rectangle, and the scrunchie is then stitched closed at the end.
This is a very easy project. Beginners can crochet this scrunchie easily. The simple rectangle is first crocheted with a one row repeat pattern of Half Double Crochets. This is a very beginner friendly stitch, and it creates a beautiful rectangle.
You can find my very recent cotton scrunchie here. It is very easy, and uses a slightly different technique. A series of intricate stitches are directly crocheted onto the elastic band with this scrunchie. I love how lacy and feminine it turned out too!
Crochet Feminine & Easy Scrunchie: the yarn
The yarn used for this scrunchie is perfect. I loved it very much. I used Rico Essentials Cotton DK in shade Silver. It is a very good yarn to crochet with. It is a 100% cotton DK/light 3 yarn, and is perfect for Summer projects. I love how soft it is to crochet accessories with. It flows very easily on the hook, and looks very beautiful once crocheted.
Rico Essentials DK is perfect for Summer hair accessories. It gives off a lovely bohemian vibe that looks perfect for this season. I love Coachella inspired Summer accessories. This crochet scrunchie would definitely look beautiful at a Summer festival. I now have quite a collection of Summer crochet accessories, including this most recent crochet bag.
Do you love crochet Summer accessories as much as me? Let me know in the comments which are your favorite crochet accessories. I love how Summer and crochet seem to be a perfect match! You can never go wrong with a cute crochet accessory.
I also love feminine looking crochet projects. Summer crochet projects are magical and bohemian all at once. I love the Boho and Coachella vibes of crochet. You can find quite a long list of Boho vibes crochet projects on this blog. Please do let me know if you have a favorite!

Sewing and finishing off your scrunchie
Fold the long strip of HDC in half lengthwise, and sew both sides together.
Once you have sewed this part, turn your project inside out so that the seam is inside it. It’s now time to put in your elastic band into the project. Take the elastic band and place the tapestry needle on one end.
Scrunch up your scrunchie, and pop your elastic band through it; once this is done, tie both sides of the elastic band together.
Fasten on a piece of yarn to the edge of the seam of the scrunchie. Sew in the seam as neatly as possible (using the mattress stitch if possible), making sure to place all your loose ends inside the scrunchie.
