They’re baaaccckkk!!!! Like so many fashion fads and trends, hair scrunchies are once again all the rage with kids and adults alike. Whether they are adding a pop of colour finishing off a cute ponytail or adorning the wrist, ready to be used in a pinch, scrunchies are flying off the shelf at big box stores and fashion boutiques alike. I started crocheting them about a month ago and have been amazed at the popularity. My favourite yarn to use is the also trendy velvet yarns as the finished scrunchie is so soft and luxurious. I had been using the number 4 and 5 weight yarns available but the 7 weight Chunky Velvet Yarn by Loops and Threads was calling my name. So I picked up a skein in my favourite colours and set to work designing a pattern. And guys, this works up so quickly! I can have a finished piece in 8 minutes!!!
