Hey, everyone! I’m Jessica, the founder behind The Hook Nook, and I REALLY like to make pretty things. For the last several years I’ve gone from teaching myself to crochet, to selling my makes to friends and family, to opening an Etsy shop, to pattern designing and now I am so fortunate to have worked with some of the biggest brands and companies in the fiber industry from all around the world. You can now find my own The Hook Nook brand designer crochet hooks, yarn and craft accessories at in my online shop and at various retailers!

DIY Crochet Velvet Scrunchies Pattern Tutorial



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.

**Want to skip the actual crocheting of your own velvet scrunchies?! Don't worry - you can purchase ready-to-ship scrunchies in my online ship!**

CH : chain

st(s) : stitch(es)

Sl st : slip stitch

SC : single crochet

HDC : half double crochet

HDCINC : half double crochet increase


  1. Sl st yarn onto hair tie.
  2. CH 1, 45 SC around hair tie, Sl st to first SC. (Note: you will need to "scoot" the sts to fit all 45 SC onto the hair tie)
  3. CH 1, HDCINC in first st, (HDC, HDCINC) in next two sts. Repeat ( ) around, Sl st to first HDC. Finish off, weave in ends.

Voila! That's it! Easy peesy, lemon squeezy. Just a warning from someone who's been in there, just know that you have been warned that once you start, it's hard to stop - haha!! I could make these ALL DAY LONG!! Stay tuned, I'm hoping to bring some multi-color kit options to the shop soon! But don't forget, you can ALWAYS get ready-to-ship scrunchies in my online shop. :) 

Happy crafting!
