Crochet Simple Feminine Scrunchie
Hello everyone, I hope you are well! Today I wanted to bring you a new and fun project, which is on how to crochet a simple feminine scrunchie.
If you recall, I had made a feminine and frilly scrunchie tutorial last week. You can find it here Crochet a cotton scrunchie tutorial.
This week’s scrunchie is quite different, the method used to crochet it is completely distinct from the first tutorial. Indeed, for this week’s pattern, we start by crocheting a long piece consisting of Half Double Crochets, before sewing the piece up one side. Once this is complete, we insert an elastic and finish of the project. This creates the fluffiest, cutest scrunchie ever!
The video tutorial for this project can be found here: Crochet Feminine Scrunchie video tutorial
Crochet a Simple Feminine Scrunchie: a soft and fluffy project
I love this scrunchie because it reminds me of those we had in childhood. It is soft and fluffy, and really has that candy cane and marshmallow vibe to it. I know I will be wearing mine so much this Summer. Also, it is a really versatile accessory. It can be used directly to tie up a pony tail, as well as a simple “decoration” over a top knot or bun. It is the perfect finish to any coiffure, and that’s what I love so much about it.
The yarn: Feels Like Butta by Lion Brand
Crocheting this simple feminine scrunchie was a delight because of the yarn. I used Lion Brand’s Feels Like Butta yarn to crochet this accessory, and I can honestly say it’s one of my favourite yarns! It is soft and squishy, and reminds a bit of a chenille texture, but finer. So it was the perfect yarn to crochet my scrunchie with.
I have used this yarn before, and I have to admit that I love the feel of it. For this project, I used a 4 mm hook to crochet with, and it was perfect to get a “fuller” texture. As I was making a scrunchie, I felt like it needed to be a bit compact and bouncy, if this makes sense. I hope it does!
A very easy project to crochet
This crochet project is perfect if you are a beginner, or an expert crocheter. It requires minimal crochet and sewing skills. If this is your first project, then do not be afraid. This is perfect for you. The repeat pattern of Half Double Crochets is very easy to get the hang of. It is also a very quick project, which builds up easily.
The yarn is also very high quality, so definitely worth crocheting this scrunchie with. I know I really enjoy simple crochet hair accessories, as they really give any outfit a bohemian and romantic look. They are quick to crochet too, and make great gifts for people. Do you like to crochet hair accessories too?

Gauge: Gauge is not crucial for completion of this project
1 skein of Lion Brand Feels Like Butta (shade Dusky Pink or White)
An 8” elastic piece
A 4 mm crochet hook
A tapestry needle
A pair of scissors
Sl st: Slip stitch
HDC: Half Double Crochet
EOR: End of row
Start pattern here:
Make a slip knot, and ch 17
Complete rows as follows:
1: HDC into 3rd ch from hook, and into every ch after that until eor.
2: Ch 2 (=HDC), HDC into 2nd st and into every st until eor.
3-60: repeat row 2
Fasten off, leaving long tail for sewing.
Sewing and finishing off your scrunchie:
Fold the long strip of HDC in half lengthwise, and sew both panels 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 safety pin 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, making sure to place all your loose ends inside the scrunchie.
Fasten off, tidy up all loose ends.
