You will need a ponytail band, yarn, and a hook.
This pattern is very flexible in yarn and hook size. For instance, I crocheted one using a 1.7mm hook and another using a 2.1mm hook and they ended up being the same size (see picture below...).
I used crochet cotton thread size 10 for this scrunchy, but any light weight yarn should work well.
Starting with a slip knot, sl st attach to ponytail band, ch 1 pull tight.
rnd 1: ch 3 (counts as first dc), dc 179 around the ponytail band, sl st join to first dc of rnd. (180 st)
As you crochet the first rnd, pause to push the stitches back. When you have reached 90 sts, push the stitches back and adjust them so they only take up half of the ponytail band. Continue adjusting them in this fashion until this rnd is finished.
rnd 3: sl st into first ch space, ch 1, sc into same ch space, ch 3, (sc into next ch space, ch 3) x 59, sl st join to first sc of rnd. (60 ch 3 spaces)
Fasten Off. Weave in ends.
And there you have it. An awesome, easy scrunchy!
