Bead Soup Scrunchie Pattern
Bead Soup Scrunchie
skill level: beginner
size 10 cotton thread of your choice (you can use solid or variegated)
different bead mix (seed beads, pearls, acrylic or glass beads, etc) in colors to match your thread
steel hook #7
Goody ouchless elastic in any size
String on beads first before starting. For a full scrunchie, you need to string on about 36" long of beads. It would help if you have twisted beading needle for this.
Round 1 - Attach thread to elastic using slip stitch or you can tie a knot. Cover entire elastic with Sc's. Join to first sc.
Round 2 - Chain 7 adding a bead with each chain. sc in next sc. Bead chain 7 in same stitch. Sc in next. Do this until entire scrunchie is covered. Join. Fasten off. Weave in ends.
You can use black thread or metallic thread with rocailles or pearls for a dressier scrunchie. :-)
