It’s time to break out everything Red, White & Blue! I decided that I wanted to make a hair scrunchie that was lightweight and had a patriotic vibe. So, introducing the the 4th of July Hair Scrunchie

Perfect to top off that messy bun look, which I love!!!

It’s a super easy little pattern, you could whip up dozens in a jiffy! They are just made in three rounds. I did use an elastic hair band to crochet around, so it will be stretchy.

Finished scrunchie measures approx. 4.5” across.

I used Lion Brand 24/7 cotton, but any cotton yarn would work. This is just what I had on hand.

Things you will need:


  • ch = chain
  • sc = single crochet
  • hdc = half double crochet
  • Sk = skip
  • st = stitch (es)
  • Sl st = slip stitch


Start with the navy yarn

Round 1: sl st yarn to hair band, ch 2, work 32 hdc around the band, sl st into the 1st st (32)

Switch to red yarn

Round 2: ch 2, 2 hdc in each st around, sl st into 1st st (64)

Switch to white yarn

For round 3 you will work the crab stitch border around the edges

Round 3:

Ch 1, Now work a single crochet stitch in each stitch BUT you will go in reverse (to the right) instead of to the left.

By simply working a single crochet in each stitch, it will create this rolled texture

slip stitch into the the beginning chain stitch once you reach the beginning where you started

Cut yarn and weave in all ends

Crochet away!
