Let’s get WEIRD with our scraps, shall we, little goblins? Scrunchie life is back, and this pattern is the perfect little palette cleanse when you’re avoiding doing something, as I am right now. Bonus: they’re a scrap buster for odd bits of yarn!

Sizes: XS (S, M, L, XL, 2XL) for a ponytail circumference of 2″ (3″, 4″, 5″, 6″, 7″)/5 (7.5, 10, 12.5, 15, 18) cm.

Yarn: 50 – 75 yards/45 – 70 meters/12 – 17 grams of lace – sport weight yarn.

Sample shown in Malabrigo Sock yarn colorway Water Green.

Needles: Size US 5/3.75 mm circular needles and one of a smaller size, or size needed to get a nice fabric density with preferred cable length to work flat or in the round; I like 30”/76 cm for this project to use the magic loop method. Some testers preferred double-point needles.

Gauge: 5 – 6 stitches per inch/2.5 cm. Row gauge is not important. Heck, stitch gauge isn’t massively important either. If your gauge is tighter than mine, consider bumping up a needle and conversely, down one. This isn’t the hill you need to die on.

Notions: A crochet hook (optional, if using a crochet provisional cast on) and scrap yarn, a length of elastic as indicated by the chart (can substitute a hair elastic), sewing thread and needle, tapestry needle, safety pin (optional), and spare circular needles.

Sample uses 5/8” double-fold elastic.

Techniques: Provisional CO, knitting in the round, 3 needle bind off, and Jeny’s Surprisingly Stretchy Bind Off (optional).
