With the scrunchie firmly back in fashion we have the perfect pattern so you can have fun making one or more to fit your wardrobe. A headband can be so much easier to wear than a beanie, and our design is just the thing for chilly spring walks or to keep you warm on cooler evenings. Hair Necessities includes a classic twist headband and a complimentary hair scrunchie, each with three stitch options. This hair accessory set is perfect for beginners wanting a small easy project to try out different stitches.
