Quick tips to help you with creating your own version of this crochet hair scrunchie
Make sure to maintain a uniform tension – This might take a few practices. You want your tension to be uniform especially the first round around the elastic band.
Use simpler crochet stitches – I recommend using short crochet stitch like single crochet for the first round, especially when crocheting around an elastic hair band as the band would stretch.
