Valentine Hearts Scrunchie
designed by Kim Guzman © Feb. 1999
Technique: Regular Crochet
- Elastic-covered hair band
- Worsted Weight Cotton (Red) – approximately 18-20 yards
- Hook Size – H
Always stretch out the pony band before using to test its metal clasp for strength. You might want to hold two bands together while making your scrunchie for extra security from breakage.
Rnd 1: Attach yarn to pony band with sl st, ch 1, 37 sc around, sl st to first sc. Stretch band to evenly space stitches.
Rnd 2: Ch 1, sc in same stitch, *ch 3, sk 2 sts, sc in next stitch, rep from * 10 more times, ch 3, sl st in first sc: 12 ch-3 sps.
Rnd 3: Sl into each of first 2 ch of ch-3 sp, ch 3 (counts as first dc), 4 dc in same ch, ch 1, *sc in next ch-3 sp, ch 1, 5 dc in next second ch of ch-3 sp, rep from * around, ending with sc in last ch-3 sp, sl st to top of beg ch-3.
Rnd 4: Ch 1, in each 5 dc group, work the following pattern: in first dc, work (sc, dc), in second dc, work (dc, sc), insert hook around post of third dc and work sl st, in fourth dc, work (sc, dc), in fifth dc, work (dc, sc), ch 2 between each completed heart, sl st to first sc, fasten off.
Carefully weave in all ends.
Many of you have written to me to ask how you can help support CrochetKim. A Patreon account was suggested but I thought it would be better to provide ad-free PDFs of my patterns so you would get something in return. I'm steadily working on adding PDFs to all my patterns and I've also made this compilation available at a discounted price. You can, of course, view, print, paste to a word processor, convert to PDF, etc. on your own. This is just an extra feature so that people help out, if they want. Thank you to all of you for your overwhelming support and kindness these many years. Enjoy!
