Need a very quick project? Try crochet scrunchies! They were very popular in the eighties and nineties, but you can see them a lot nowadays, too, because they are back on trend.

A simple accessory like a crochet scrunchie can transform any outfit and hairstyle, so make a bunch in different colors, so you can choose according to your color palette for each day. 15 minutes are enough to make it, so it’s a perfect last-minute gift. Beginners will find it easy and very rewarding! Use cotton yarn for a natural look, or go for something fluffy, like novelty yarns or velvet. Leftovers from your other projects will be perfect to use up on accessory like scrunchie. Take a look at examples below and search for links to free patterns under the pictures.
