Summertime Scrunchy

Do you like tying your hair back?

I know I do. Sometimes I really enjoy letting my hair done, but whenever I’m at work (or needing to get some work done), I tie my hair back to get it out of the way.

But sometimes I get really bored with my regular black hair tie. I mean, sure it looks nice and isn’t noticeable, but what if you’re feeling fun? Then I’ve got such a simple project for you!

It’s this delightful unicorn palette scrunchy hair tie:

Dang, that’s majestic.
It just needs a horn and a tail!

I want you to know that I quietly laughed to myself at Starbucks while I doodled this.

There we go!

Okay, enough with the funny stuff (and I hope you thought that was funny hah), let’s get to this super simple pattern!

H Hook
Cotton Yarn (I chose Lily Sugar N Cream Scents in Fleur de Lavande)
Tapestry Needle
Elastic hair tie

I picked this yarn because cotton is going to be the most durable, it’s a good lightweight yarn for the summer…and I had it left over from some other fun projects and thought that this would be a really good idea to help me out in my ongoing Project Scrap Yarn.



  1. Placing your slipknot onto the hook, ch 1, and single crochet into the rubber band’s center until you have completely covered the hair tie. Slip stitch to your beginning ch.

2. Ch 6 and single crochet into the next stitch

3. Ch 6 and single crochet into the next stitch. Repeat until you have gone all the way around through the stitches. Slip stitch to the last stitch. Bind off and weave in the ends.

Final step: Wear your new scrunchy! Feel majestic!
