Back and Forth Messy Bun Hat Crochet Pattern

It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of messy bun hats!  I have plenty of patterns as proof.  

So, why add another pattern, you ask?  

I’m pretty proud of this pattern because of its versatility.  What makes it different from the other cute messy bun hats is that it can be made into a beanie as well.

One pattern, two finishing options.  That’s basically a two for one, right?

This hat pattern has a really retro vibe to me due to its more rounded shape.  Plus, mustard always has me feeling vintage.

This messy bun hat can be turned into a beanie by simply pulling the tail to cinch it closed.  Or, keep it as a messy bun hat by sewing in your ends.
It uses alternating stitches for a simple texture, and it’s perfect for anyone who loves a little retro in their lives.
