I just posted on Instagram how I had kind of gotten "in the zone" and busted out SEVERAL crocheted scrunchies using velvet yarn and was overwhelmed with interest for the pattern - so let's GET TO IT!!
I love the velvet yarn because it's so soft, cozy and texturally/aesthetically delicious. In the comments of my Instagram post, my dear friend Ceilidh from @love_meknots had mentioned she also loves using faux fur yarn which I thought was another wonderful idea!!! I chose to use Bernat Velvet yarn because I have SO much on hand it comes in a wide variety of colors. I purchase my Bernat Velvet yarn both on Amazon and at my local JOANN Store.
I personally love the Goody Ouchless hair ties (bought off of Amazon) and use those for my scrunchies. They tend to last a long while, don't cause pain when I wear them for hours at a time and are very affordable.
Ready for the pattern?! Let's do this!
