Sandy Beaded Scrunchie Crochet Pattern

Scrunchies are back! And this is a really easy way to experiment with beading crochet. Choose colors for your favorite cheerleader, or college sports fan, or make them for a teacher in the school colors. Any color combination would be fun!

I love to wear the beaded crochet scrunchie over a a high bun with an off-the-shoulder top. And when I wear the bright pink scrunchie, I like to match my lipstick with it, too!

One of reasons I am happy to see scrunchies back in style is because they are way less damaging to my hair than traditional hair ties.

Crocheting a scrunchie is actually a super simple process. The first round of the stitches are worked right around the hair tie! And from there the tiered volume is creating by making two sets of the remaining rows, one set in the front loop of the first round and the other set in the back loop of the first round. Simple yet so effective and voluminous!

The Sandy Beaded Scrunchie Crochet Pattern features Be So Sporty Yarn in color Feisty Flamingo with 6mm fire polish beads in color Siam AB. The iridescent finish on the beads is so sparkly and fun!

Be So Sporty is a #2 sport weight yarn that is 100% bamboo. It is soft, lustrous and comes in many hand dyed colors, all hand dyed in Kristin Omdah’s Florida studio.

    I’ve been making scrunchies for 25 plus years. I have one of every color for every outfit I own. Love your design. Made some with beads, too. I’m 80 years old and have been been crocheting since I was 3 1/2. I love doing my own designs. I never read directions anymore.
