How to make tulle scrunchies perfect for buns
Everybody is wearing scrunchies now! I love the easy scrunchies look and already created a crochet pattern for velvet scrunchies.
Now, my daughters started ballet again and I wanted to give them another more sophisticated scrunchies option. In comes the tulle that is so essential in ballet. I turned it into a scrunchie with one simple crochet stitch and fluffy fur like yarn.
These scrunchies are a dream and perfect for your little ballerinas or grown up ballerinas at heart.

Tulle Scrunchies Crochet Pattern:
Cut your tulle into a 2″ long strip of about 20″. Make them longer if you want your scrunchies to be fuller or shorter if you need to make a smaller version. You can also make a wider, 3″ strip if you want to go even bigger.
Fold your tulle in half so the strip is 1″ wide. You will be working a twisted single crochet along the edge where the 2 sides are folded together. The twisted single crochet is essentially a single crochet but worked backwards so you get a nice braided effect along the top.
Insert your hook about 1/8″ away from the 2 ends through both layers. Pull up the yarn. Now insert your hook again about 1/8″ to the right, pull up the yarn. Now you have 2 loops on your hook. Yarn over and pull through both loops on the hook. So really just like single crochet. The only difference is that your are going backwards. That can feel awkward at first, but you will quickly adjust.
With this faux fur yarn, it is also hard to see your stitches. But since they are hard to see, it won’t matter if you did a few a little off. Good lighting helps to see the stitches better while working on them.
When you finished crocheting along the edge, pull the loop a little bigger so you won’t loose it.
Now take about 8″ of your 2mm Elastic String and insert it in the tube you created. It might be gook to use a clamp to secure it on one side while pulling it through the center. I love that the elastic comes in so many colors so you can match it with your tulle color. So I used pink for my pink tulle and black for this black tulle.
Once you have it pulled through, tie a knot and crochet along the 2 sides with a single crochet to close the edge. I caught the knot with my crochet stitches so it was concealed by this edge.
