The Crochet Scrunchie Pattern is a simple make using beginner crochet stitches around a hair tie. It is made simply by using single and double crochet stitches. I used worsted weighted yarn, so the scrunchies work up super quick. 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 crochet 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.

Crochet Scrunchie with Extra Layers of Ruffles

But these scrunchies are not ordinary crochet make. Nope. They are totally unique! I have gone the extra mile and added an extra layer to the scrunchie. Because they have 2 layers ruffled up and they totally look like a tutu.

But here is the magic. When you put one on your hair, it looks like a flower. So cool! In addition, you can actually make your crochet scrunchie using two different colors. The magic really comes out when the 2 layered ruffles have 2 different yarn colors.

This crochet hair accessory would make a great handmade gift. Scrunchies are so versatile because no matter how old you are, you will look good wearing a scrunchie in your long hair.

All you really need in order to make this super fun and easy crochet 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.

Written Pattern for Layered Crochet Scrunchie

This crochet scrunchie pattern starts from the center and is made in rounds. Starting with the 2nd round, it is split up to create layered ruffles.

Crochet Round 1 around the hair tie elastic

Hold your hair tie 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 crocheting Round 1

Slip stitch to the first stitch, but only through the front loop only.

Crochet Round 2 in the front loop

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 loop for the layered crochet scrunchie

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 of the Crochet Scrunchie

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.
