Scrunchie Bow Pattern

Scrunchie Bow Pattern

I’ve never seen crochet scrunchies before; THEY’RE SO CUTE! I wish I had known about them earlier. I would have amassed a collection of assorted crochet scrunchies by now.

This week I dedicated my time to looking at scrunchies. What I learned is that scrunchies have been around for a long time; since 1987. I wasn’t able to find as solid of a date when it comes to crocheted scrunchies. However, I think it’s safe to assume crocheted scrunchies have been around since scrunchies came out.

Because why not? Crochet is such a wonderful art form that if you’re determined and patient enough you can make anything. So without a doubt in my mind, I’m certain someone saw a scrunchie when they first came out and made it in crocheted form.

With that being said, here is my take on crocheted scrunchies! The black and white scrunchie is made from 100% cotton yarn in worsted weight. The taupe scrunchie is made from velvet yarn. Use whichever worsted weight or 4 weight yarn you’d like. The fibers don’t seem to make a different.

Cozy Thoughts

This crochet scrunchie is rather special to me. It’s made up of my favorite stitch, The Waffle Stitch. I love the waffle stitch because of its versatility and the overall cozy feeling I get looking at it. Is that odd? Do you have a stitch you just absolutely adore? Or just enjoy?

Another reason why I love the waffle stitch, and why I chose it for this crochet project. Is because it’s an absolutely wonderful stitch for beginners who are looking at dipping their toes into some more intermediate crochet stitches. It’s a simple double crochet with a twist, front posts! Depending on other people’s patterns, your waffle stitch may comprise front posts and back posts. This crochet scrunchie only has front posts. Which makes it an even better transitional project for beginners.
