2. What type of yarn can I use for crochet scrunchies?

Various yarns can be used for crochet scrunchie patterns. Cotton yarn, crochet thread, acrylic yarn, medium-weight yarn (weighted yarn), and even bulky-weight yarn can be used.

It all depends on the texture and the size you want your scrunchie to turn out to be. You may notice that some patterns in the list below even call for Bernat Velvet Yarn for a more luxe look. Your crochet scrunchie will generally be softer and require fewer stitches to complete with chunkier yarn.

3. What size should a scrunchie be?

The ideal size for a scrunchie is typically around 4 to 6 inches in diameter, as this size provides a good balance between holding the hair securely and being comfortable to wear.
