Strawberry Fields Scrunchie
Created to accompany the Mirrorball Vest dog sweater pattern so you can match your best friend!
Named after the 1967 song by The Beatles, Strawberry Fields Forever, for the ever-repeating berry stitch.
This fun textured scrunchie is knit in the round with a four row repeat stitch pattern and then seamed around a hair elastic. It creates fun texture that shows up well in a variety of colours. It was designed to match the Mirrorball Vest for dogs, so the berry stitch pattern is identical to the one on the vest. Linked video tutorials are included to help you along the way.
Long tail cast on, knitting in the round, increasing, decreasing, seaming.
One size. You can make the scrunchie larger and have more ‘scrunch’ to it by casting on more stitches or continuing for more rounds by adding extra repeats of the stitch pattern.
I knit these scrunchies in Paintbox Yarns Cotton DK specifically to match the Mirrorball Vest dog sweater. This is a fun scrappy project as you can use almost anything in your stash and you don’t need much of it.
This is an estimate, the final yardage will vary based on your yarn choice and tension.
Less than 70 yards is enough for one scrunchie.
