Ribbon scrunchie - free pattern

Announcing yet another freddyknits free pattern....

the Ribbon Scrunchie!

Although I made the sample with ribbon yarn, you could use any type of yarn, to match your poncho, bag, or sweater. This is a great way to use up little bits of yarn.

ribbon scrunchy/scrunchie, free pattern, Crystal Palace Mikado
Mikado Ribbon Scrunchy


  • 1 ball Crystal Palace Mikado (or any worsted weight yarn)
    (one ball makes two large or several small scrunchies)
  • Size 7 (US) needles
  • Coated elastic band, 2.5” in diameter for small (4” in diameter for large)

On size 7 needles, cast on 36 (60) stitches.
Row 1 (RS)– Knit.
Row 2 (WS) – Purl.
Continue in stockinette for 2 (4) inches.
Bind off.

With right sides together, sew up side seam to form a tube. Insert tube through coated elastic band so that band is centered around the middle of the tube. Fold one end of the tube up so that the cast-on and bound-off edges of the tube are together, with right side of knitting facing out. Sew edges together with an invisible top seam.
