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!

Hi! This is super adorable I can’t wait to keep going :) Quick question though I’m using a four-weight yarn and a size J hook. Seems like it’s going to turn out a little small should I up my hook size on my next one to make it a little bit bigger?

That is definitely a great way to make it larger, Amanda. Experimenting with hook sizes and yarn types will definitely help you get the desire look and size you need. Keep it up! Thanks for the great question.

I love this! Thanks for sharing. Had some lovely wool but no pattern to match. Made the hat in no time and used the pattern to create a matching fingerless glove pattern to finish off the wool. ????

Please tell me I'm on the right track before I go any farther! I did a gauge swatch, and had to go down to a size "I" hook to make gauge. OK, fair enough. But I've made the 60 FHDC, and the strip is 26" long! No WAY is that gonna fit a 22" head! What am I missing here?

:) You aren't missing anything. It's a loose fit. All my hats are a loose fit.
