The Scrunchie is a free crochet pattern and made simply using single and double crochet stitches, as well as worsted weighted yarn. It has two layers and lots of ruffles.
I haven’t washed my hair in 2 days. It’s a bit oily and needs to be washed for sure. But there is no time. So besides using dry shampoo, which never looks good on my hair, what should I do? I know.! I’ll put my hair in a bun. But not any bun, a scrunchie bun. Yes, like Kaley Cuoco has on her “Cup with Cuoco” Instagram stories and IGTV videos. If she looks stylish with it, I can, too. So a scrunchie it is until I have time to wash my hair.
But these scrunchies are not ordinary. Nope. They are unique because they have 2 layers ruffled up and totally look like a tutu. But here is the magic. When you put one on your hair, it looks like a flower. So cool. The magic really comes out when the 2 layered ruffles have 2 different yarn colors.
All you really need in order to crochet this scrunchie pattern, is an elastic, a hook and some worsted weighted yarn. I use Furls Crochet Whims Merino yarn which has a unique z twist that prevents splitting of the yarn when crocheting with it (as a rightie). Learn more about yarn splitting and prevention here.
So, let me now give you the supplies you need in order to crochet this layered scrunchie pattern.
This pattern is also available as an ad-free, printer-friendly pdf pattern that can be purchased at the links below for only a small fee.

Written Pattern for Layered Scrunchie:
Time needed: 10 minutes.
This pattern starts from the center and is made in rounds. Starting with the 2nd round, it is split up to create layered ruffles.
- Round 1
Hold your elastic and then start with a slip knot and then crochet single crochet stitches all around. Add as many as you like. The more you add (tight together) the more ruffles you will have.
- Finish round 1
Slip stitch to the fist stitch, but only through the front loop only.
- Round 2 in the front
Now, start with a ch of 3 or alternative turning chain and 1 dc in the first st, then crochet 2 dc in each st. Sl st to the 1st st at the end of the round. Now either continue with the same color or switch colors.
- Round 2 in the back
Now attach the new color or continue with the same color in the back loop we skipped earlier. Place 2 dc’s in each stitch. Sl st to the first st.
- Round 3
Now, you can either create more ruffles or, like me, match the ruffles from round 2. So I added 1 dc in each stitch (both loops) all around. If you want even more ruffles, crochet 2 dc’s in each st. Sl st to the first st at the end. Fasten off and weave in your ends.
