Living in a tropical country makes it a requirement for a woman to have a scrunchies. And the SHOELACE scrunchies is perfect inn keeping hair up in hot weather.

This crochet project is simple enough that a beginner can handle it. The scrunchies is made with a filet mesh, then the elastic is enclosed in the mesh. The mesh is then closed by tying the string like a shoelace.

The construction of the SHOELACE scrunchies makes it possible to change the elastic inside once loose.

      Hello Wonder wool!

      I think so too. Actually I thought of making patterns of scrunchies made this way using various mesh patterns. Yet on second thought, that would be too boring.

      Thanks for leaving a comment!

      Hello KrisL!

      That's my big problem too when crocheting scrunchies. It seems such a waste of crochet work when you have to throw away your crocheted scrunchies just because the elastic inside has gone loose.

      Excellent hub. I crochet scrunchies myself, and I''m always disappointed when the elastic goes and I can't use them anymore.

      Very clear instructions too.

      Voted up and useful.
