Looking for a fun and easy crochet project to add a touch of handmade flair to your summer wardrobe? Look no further than this Summertime Scrunchie pattern! This lovely hair accessory works up extremely quick and if you’re looking for small crochet items to sell at markets this is perfect for you!

First lets talk a little about the yarn. For my scrunchie I used Linendale Reflections from King Cole. This is a newer yarn so they sent me a couple balls as samples. I loved the colors so I came up with a quick little project to give it a try. First the colors are so beautiful! They have a subtle variation which I love. The yarn is a blend of cotton and linen that is light weight and has a wonderful drape. While I used this yarn for a small accessory it would be a great choice for a larger summertime project like a tee or light weight cardigan.
