The dream of the 90s is alive everywhere!  No matter where you go 90s inspired style, pop culture, and fashion seem to be dominating everything.  Though not all 90s fashion and styles were wonderful but a favorite that I welcome back with open arms… scrunchies!

A few weeks back I treated myself to a pretty set of velvet scrunchies that came in assorted colors and prints and it got my creative juices flowing for an idea to make my own.

On a recent trip to Walmart I found Premiere’s Parfait yarn, and I immediately knew what it was destined to be!  The yarn is super velvety and comes in a variety of bright colors!  Thus, the 90s Inspired Velvet Scrunchies were born!

This project is super fun and quick and the best part is that it can be whipped up in as little as 10-15 minutes.  Because these little guys work up so fast, I suggest snagging multiple colors so that you can make yourself an entire set!  Trust me – you will be addicted to making these!

Speaking of the 90s and scrunchies, another one of my favorites that have made a comeback as of recent are Caboodles!  I actually have an original “Kidz Caboodle” (probably circa 1995ish) that I use for holding random sewing items like pins, buttons, bobbins, thread, etc.

Here it is below in all of it’s glory!  It’s in pretty good shape!

I have to admit that I almost bought a brand new one at Target last week to store my go-to makeup.  I didn’t because it would have been a complete impulse buy – but I still keep thinking about it!  Do you have an old Caboodle in your life and/or have you purchased a new one!!??  Let me know in the comments below!

90s Inspired Velvet Scrunchies – Crochet Pattern

Materials

Key

  • ch – chain
  • dc – double crochet
  • sl st – slip stitch
  • st – stitch

Pattern

Note: Make a slip knot with your yarn, but do not place knot on hook yet!  Using a standard elastic hair band, insert your hook through the hair band circle, place slip knot on hook and begin your first chain around the hair band.  All double crochets in the first round will be made around the hair band.

If you find that you need help getting started, see photos below the written pattern to help!

Round 1: Around the hair band, ch 3 (does not count as a stitch), loosely make 30 dc’s around the band (or enough to cover the elastic band in a single layer); join with 1st st of the round using a sl st.

Round 2: Ch 3 (does not count as a st), make 3 dc in each st around; join with 1st st of round using sl st.

Cut yarn and weave in ends.

  1. Thank You, I’m going to make my granddaughters some of these. They all have long hair and I think they will like them. Thank you again

    1. Hi Aaron! Thanks for stopping by and saying hi! I’d love to see how they’d turn out haha!!

  2. Is there anyway to keep the stitches from stretching and coming loose after using the scrunchie? It seems that when you stretch the hair tie the stitches move around a bunch and then look sloppy.

    1. In Round 1 you’ll want to make sure that you make your double crochets loosely around the elastic. Also, you’ll want to make sure that when you make the crochets around the elastic that you are covering it completely in a single layer.

      If your stitches are jumbled after completing 30 double crochets around the elastic then, you will want to remove stitches until they are in an even layer. If your stitches aren’t completely covering the elastic you will need to add on more.

      If you do the tips above, this should help. When you stretch the scrunchie the elastic will show, but once you put it in your hair you should only see the ruffled portion of the scrunchie and not the elastic.
