Summer Berries DIY Scrunchies Crochet Pattern

Summer Berries Scrunchies crochet pattern FREE

I love DIY scrunchies, they add a bit of fun and color to my hair and dress up a messy bun like nothing else. But I’m not a fan of velvet and honestly, it’s way too hot out here to wear velvet anything. So I’ve made those cute summer hair scrunchie crochet patterns with some texture.

Gauge

Gauge is not important for this pattern. If you want your stitches tighter, use a smaller hook. If you want your stitches looser, use a bigger hook.

Abbreviations

This pattern follows US notations

  • st = stitch
  • ch = chain
  • sc = single crochet
  • dc = double crochet
  • skip = miss stitch
  • sl st = slip stitch

Special stitches

  • Puff stitch = Yo, insert hook in indicated st, yo, pull up a loop, (yo, insert hook in same st, yo, pull up a loop) twice, yo, pull through all 7 loops on hook, ch 1 to close the puff stitch.
  • Bead stitch: The bead stitch is similar to a puff stitch but done horizontally. It’s worked up around a dc stitch.

Bead stitch = Work dc in indicated stitch, [yo, working around the dc post just made pull up a loop] repeat 3 times, yo and pull through the next 6 loops on the hook. This leaves 2 loops on the hook. Yarn over and pull through the remaining 2 loops. The bead stitch has a width of 2 stitches.

  • Bobble stitch (detailed tutorial with video):
    • Start with the first half of a dc st: Yarn over, insert hook into stitch and pull up a loop. Yarn over, pull through two loops.
    • Repeat in the same stitch/space until you have a total of 6 loops on your hook.
    • Yarn over, pull through all loops then secure the stitch with a ch 1.

Notes

Work instructions between [] the indicated number of times or until the end of the round.

The final number of stitches is indicated at the end of the round between < >.

The turning ch 1, ch 2 doesn’t count as stitches throughout the pattern.

Stitches above a ch-1 are worked in the ch-1 space.

The pattern is written in crochet shorthand.  For example:

  • “sc 1” means to single crochet in the next stitch,
  • “sc 2” means to single crochet in each of the next 2 stitches,
  • and “2 sc” means to single crochet twice in the next st.

Tips and Tricks

  • Depending on the size of your headband and how wrinkled you like your scrunchie you might need to add or remove some repeats. Just make sure that you have enough fabric to stretch the elastic
  • You can easily use one of the patterns and switch the yarn weight. Your scrunchie will be more or less wide and you might need more or less repeats but it will look great.
  • To adjust the width of the scrunchies add/remove st to the starting chain as follows:
    • Raspberry: multiple of 2 + 1
    • Blueberry: multiple of 4 + 3
    • Mulberry: multiple of 3 + 1

    Hi Hortense, the scrunchies are so pretty! I’ve always loved them and I’m glad to see that they are back! I was wondering if you had a knitting version of these scrunchies since I dont crochet? Thanks for sharing!

      Although I primarily knit, I teach all of my knitting students to do simple crochet, as well. There are many times when crochet comes in handy when I’m knitting. It might be worth your taking a beginning class for crocheting.
