Two-Toned Scrunchie Crochet Pattern – Ruffled AND Layered

A quick, easy, and brand new free crochet pattern: the two-toned crochet scrunchie pattern! Hint: use up your leftover yarn with this stash-buster!

I gotta be honest…I’m glad scrunchies are back in style. I love what a quick make they are! They’re also one of the first things I crocheted when I was younger.

I know a lot of people love velvet scrunchies, but I wanted to design a scrunchie that used lightweight yarn.

I used fingering and DK weight yarn to crochet both of these scrunchies, and I love the way they turned out!

HOW DO YOU MAKE A SCRUNCHIE?

Before we get to the actual pattern, let’s talk about how these scrunchies are made!

It’s really very simple. All you’ll need is a regular stretchy hair band, and small amount of yarn!

We’ll work around the hair band with a whole lot of dc, and then we’ll do another special round to create the two-toned effect.

There is also a bonus pattern for a sparkly scrunchie. This one is simpler and only requires 1 round! The yarn is what makes this one unique.

THE YARN

Speaking of yarn, let me show you what I used!

For the two-toned scrunchie, I used yarn from Knit Picks. I love all their fingering yarn, but for this design I used Stroll Fingering.

For the Sparkly scrunchie, I used a sport weight yarn from Lion Brand called Vanna’s Glamour. This yarn really makes the scrunchie 😍

P.S. My little sister absolutely loves wearing these scrunchies! See below…

How to Crochet a Ruffle Scrunchie

The whole key to getting that lovely ruffled scrunchie is the amount of stitches you put around the hair band. If you put more stitches around, you will get a bigger ruffle than if you put less.

In this particular pattern, I opted for a softer, smaller ruffle, but you can totally add more stitches if that’s the look you’re going for!

Best of all, this pattern is layered, meaning you will get two separate layers of gorgeous ruffles! Just know that the first layer you do will determine the overall ruffle effect that you get.

How long does it take to crochet a scrunchie?

It really does depend on the pattern. Scrunchies are generally amazing for stash-busting and QUICK projects.

This pattern in particular may take slightly longer because it uses a light weight yarn and it has two layers. However, depending on how fast you crochet, I would say you could easily be done in anywhere from 20-45 minutes!
