The Alternating hair scrunchie pattern was, of course, inspired by my other patterns in the alternating series. It’s quick and easy to crochet, and perfect for holding medium to long hair.
The stitch pattern is a multiple of 2, which means that you can easily crochet this around any sized elastic, using any yarn and crochet hook size.
Hope you’ll enjoy this hair scrunchie. And if you like this, you might also enjoy this ruffled scrunchie or the layered scrunchie. Or, for a great selection, you might want to check out more Hair Scrunchies on CPB.

You might also benefit from this tutorial showing how to alternate between front and back loops.
