The Last Minute Two Round Scrunchie pattern is the perfect use for those last few yards of yarn from another project - or to whip up as a literal last-minute gift! See how in the Lunch and Learn I taught for Yarnspirations!

First the Inspiration
It's down to the wire - you've got so many things to make and organize! Or maybe the big gifts are made, and you're left with the leftover bits of yarn and a little extra time before the gifts go out.
The Last Minute Two Round Scrunchie might just be what you're looking for! But it's not a new pattern - it's an adaptation of a free pattern on Yarnspirations, the Red Heart Set of Scrunchies pattern, by Cassandra Bibler!
Then the Lunch and Learn
So for my Lunch and Learn on the Yarnspirations Facebook page this month, I took this pattern and adapted it to work with any bit of yarn you have from a leftover project. Or you can grab a gorgeous skein and whip these out in quantity!
Here is the live video I did on the Facebook page, demo-ing how I've changed up this pattern:
The Last Minute Two Round Scrunchie Pattern
In the video above, I used Bernat Baby Crushed Velvet and a US-H, 5.0mm Furls Streamline Hook. For the hairband, I used a Goody Ouchless Thick Elastic.
Following the Solid Color Scrunchie pattern, I followed Round 1 as written.
Then, for Round 2, I just repeated the section between the asterisks - hdc in the next st, dc in the next st, tr in the next 2 sts, dc in the next st.
After Round 2, you just join, cut the yarn, and weave in your ends. Be sure to weave in the ends in the Round 2 stitches - if you try to weave them into Round 1, then using the scrunchie will make them work their way back out!
Make It Your Own
I used Bernat Baby Crushed Velvet because it's the same weight as the yarn recommended in the pattern. And that's also why I used the recommended hook size. But you can feel free to mix it up - make every sweater, scarf, shawl, and blanket you gift this year a set with a matching scrunchie!
If you chose a different weight of yarn, you may need to adjust the number of stitches in Round 1. Any multiple of 5 will work - just be sure to squeeze them in to cover the hairband!
In addition, you may need to adjust the hook size - something close to what's recommended on the label should work - as long as you like the look of the stitches, you'll be all set!
Have a healthy and happy holiday season, all! ♥
