Scrunchies are a favorite hair accessory that you can make quickly and easily with this crochet project. There are so many different ways they can be made once you know the construction. They can be big and fluffy, or thin and sleek. The style also can change so much depending on what type of yarn you use.
These are the materials you will need to get started:
If you want a fluffier scrunchie you could start by casting on 15-20 stitches and crochet 40-50 rows for a more bunchy look. I love to have a range of sizes and colors of scrunchies to use at all times! I hope you enjoy this quick and easy crochet project!

Crochet can seem intimidating at first with all of the different types of yarn, hooks, patterns, and stitches. Today I will walk you through the basics of crocheting to learn how to make the single crochet stitch. I will show you what you need to get started with picking out the right hook and yarn. After you know these basics, you can make endless things with crochet.
When starting a new project I always get my inspiration from the yarn, so that is where I like to start. Pick out a yarn that you love! Pick out something in a nice color, something soft, or something that you can see yourself wearing! When you are first learning crochet you want to start out with a more basic yarn. I recommend The Hook Nook Main Squeeze yarn. This is a great yarn to begin because it isn’t too big or small and shouldn’t get tangled easily.
Picking the right hook size is the next step. Usually on the yarn packaging there will be recommendations for what size hook you should use. If it is not on the yarn it should be in its online description. The recommended hook size will make for a fairly tight stitch. If you want a looser stitch, pick a larger hook to work with. Usually for beginners I recommend using a hook 1 size bigger than recommended because when first learning people tend to crochet very tight, and this leaves a little more wiggle room. If you are using the Main Squeeze yarn that would be a size J hook.
This is a chart to reference if you don't know what size hook you should use with your yarn.
LET'S GET STARTED!
I also recommend having The Hook Nook How to Crochet Booklet to reference as you are learning. In the booklet you will also find other beginner stitches to try out.
Good luck, Cherries!
