Inspiration for design:
It’s the time of year when we are frantically looking for ways to use up our stash so we can buy more yarn, right? Too many deals to keep up with! Which is why I decided to make these cute Furtastic scrunchies! They work up in literally just 15 minutes and make for the perfect last minute gift or market prep item. I am excited to share that I am taking part in the 8th Annual Holiday Stashdown Crochet Along hosted by a group of talented designers! This signature Crochet Along, now entering it’s eighth year, allows crocheters to get a head start on their holiday crafting while also busting stash, learning new crochet techniques, chatting with others, and entering giveaways for awesome crochet prizes.

IMPORTANT VIDEO TUTORIALS:
- Pattern rows are Forward pass instructions.
- The following instructions are implied:
- The loop already on the hook at the beginning of the row counts as the first st.
- Always Tunisian simple stitch in the last st of the row, being sure to work under both loops of the st.
- Return Pass: Follow the foundation row and each row with the Return Pass in the same color unless a color change is needed.
- Return Pass Instructions: Ch 1, *yarn over, pull through two loops; repeat from * until 1 loop remains on the hook.
Tss: Tunisian simple stitch
RetP: Return Pass -Explained above
Sc: Single crochet
Sl st: Slip stitch
Make a slip knot and slip stitch around the elastic hair tie. Make 30 sc around and sl st into the first sc.
Row 1 (Foundation Row): Pick up a loop in the back bump of each chain. Complete normal RetP. (30 sts) Note: You can pick up anywhere between 20 and 30 stitches (it’s okay if you miss a few).
Swirl cord around the base scrunchie, join by working sl st into the first st of cord and the scrunchie base. Refer below to see scrunchie base and cord.
Sl st join the cord and base together by working into top of base scrunchie stitch and the bottom of the aligned Tunisian crochet cord stitch. Continue around. Sl st into first stitch.

If you need more assistance, refer to the photo tutorial below or watch the complete video tutorial here:
STEP-BY-STEP PHOTO TUTORIAL:
Make a slip knot and attach yarn to the hair tie
Sl st into first stitch in the round
Pick up 20 to 30 loops in back bumps of stitches (feel the stitches with your finger). It’s okay if you miss a few stitches in between.
This is what it looks like after picking up stitches (foundation row forward pass)
Complete return pass (continue feeling for the stitches)
For the seaming part, I will be referring to the base scrunchie and Tunisian crochet cord as seen below
Wrap cord around base scrunchie
Sl st into first stitch on base scrunchie
Align cord and base scrunchie
Sl st join the base scrunchie to the cord (work into top of stitch on the base scrunchie and the bottom of the stitch on the cord)
Leave a 6 in. tail and cut yarn and weave in all loose ends. Optional: use a glue gun to hot glue the ends for extra security.
Use as a bracelet or scrunchie. If used as a scrunchie, it’s best to use another hair tie first to secure hair and add this as a decorative hair piece.
