Hair Scrunchie from Handspun Merino
For the KH Forum April knit-along this month, we're making hair accessories. So, I chose to start off with a hair scrunchie.

I used some yarn that I spun on my spinning wheel a couple years ago - a beautiful blue merino wool.


Here's the finished scrunchie:


I tried it on, and it works great!


Here's the free knitting pattern for the scrunchie:

Thank you all!
That pattern is SO quick and easy. I think I could make eight scrunchies a day if I wanted to.

A fun spring and summer project.

Hi Sandy,

Great looking scrunchy, and I too love the color you chose.

One question, will it hold really thick, strong hair? My DIL has hair so thick it's ruined many vacuum cleaners.

Thanks!

I can definitely vouch that it will hold VERY thick hair. My hair is coarse and ridiculously thick. I have an Irish heritage, as well as some Cherokee Indian thrown in.

Here's a view of the back of my head:
