You can easily adjust the fullness of this crochet hair scrunchie by doing more or fewer stitches in round one around the scrunchie. Thus, you could easily use this pattern to crochet around any sized hair elastic from toddlers to adults.
Also, I used a worsted weight yarn, but feel free to experiment with other yarns and hook sizes as well. If using a thread, I would highly recommend that you use the same color thread as the elastic in order for it blend in.
And, you have the option to crochet this in a solid color, or in a two-toned color as shown.
