I never thought I would see scrunchies make a comeback but after spending most of last Summer binging Stranger Things 3 this 90's kid is so here for it!!! Just to make it even more nostalgic I went with the buttery soft velvet yarn that's basically everywhere right now and the results are absolutely ahhhmazing!! You'll want to make one in every color which is a piece of cake since they're so quick and easy to make. They don't a lot of yarn either which is always a plus so it would be fun to play around with different kinds of scraps from your stash to see how they come out. Enjoy and don't forget to tag us in your project photos!

Working around the tail as you go make 2 DC in each St around, make 2 Dc into Sl St from previous round as if it were a St, Skip the Ch 2 and Sl St to first Dc to join. Work an Invisible Fasten Off and sew in the end. (1 Ch, 62 Sts)
