Brighten your day with this cute little flower petals crochet hair scrunchie. It works up quick, and is perfect for yourself or your little girl. I worked my petals all in one color, but if you have the patience to weave in a bunch of ends, you could crochet them in different colors using scrap yarn for a colorful summer hair scrunchie.
The pattern is a copycat off this teething toy with a few changes; I didn’t work this into the back bumps, and instead of skipping three stitches made in Round 1, I only skipped two. For a scrunchie you want to allow for a nice stretch to wrap it around the hair at least one to two times.
It is shown here wrapped once around two fingers, and I love how the ends curl over a bit. It’s really cute, and I’m sure any little girl will enjoy wearing this in her hair.
For this scrunchie, I used a soft and fine yarn, which allowed me to get lots of stitches around the elastic for a nice full look. You could use a thicker yarn, but I’m not sure how much stretch you would get out of it. Feel free to use any size hair scrunchie and then adjust the amount of stitches that you work around it. Just make sure to have a nice full amount to allow for a nice stretch, and that your total number of stitches is a multiple of three.
Another use for this pattern would be to crochet around a plastic ring for a napkin ring. I think it would be cute, and maybe even a conversation starter at your next dinner party.
