While there have been so many messy bun hats taking the world by storm. I made a conscious decision to make several designs to represent different levels of creators as well as different styles for different outfits. We all have different reasons we choose specific crochet patterns so I am doing my absolute best to cover all the bases. This lovely hat is super fast and really quite easy to work up. Shells may appear to be a difficult crochet stitch, but really they are so simple! You must give this one a try. You can even decrease 2 more rows and cinch it together to make a full-size crochet beanie!
