Simple Edgy Messy Bun Hat Crochet Pattern

Need a classic hat pattern?  

Look no further.  This messy bun hat pattern has a very clean, traditional, and put together style.  It uses a 3rd loop stitch combined with traditional single, double, and half double crochet stitches to create crisp, linear lines.

I love making these for my co-workers because the pattern is just so clean and simple that it’s a safe bet for anyone.

The messy bun hat is unique enough in concept, but when paired with this simpler texture, it makes it the perfect item for friends who like a more minimalist look.

You could even introduce a second color for alternating stripes to customize the look.  

This pattern is also versatile in that it can be made into a full beanie.  

This is a great pattern for all levels of crocheters.

Go forth and happy crocheting!

Simple Edgy Messy Bun Hat Crochet Pattern

Yarn – Worsted weight 4 – 170 yds. Right now we are in love with Plymouth Encore Worsted – a wide color selection in an easy-care workhorse yarn

Materials – I/9 5.5mm, stitch marker, scissors, yarn needle

Difficulty – Easy

Size – Stretchy, fits 20” to 23”

Measurements in Pattern – 4” Diameter opening, 19” Circumference at the band, 21” Circumference around the crown, 8” length

Gauge in pattern – 4” = 12 stitches, 7 rows

Stitch Guide in American Terms –
SC – single crochet
HDC – half double crochet
DC – double crochet

Special Stitches – 3rd Loop – a.k.a. Back bump, back hump – In this pattern, it is the loop behind the stitch immediately following the back loop. Here’s a video showing where it is.


Worked from the top down in a spiral. Chains do not count as stitches. Do not join at the end of the row and do not turn. Instead, slip stitch in the back bump of the second chain. (Image included.) Use your stitch marker at the beginning of each round. Working in the 3rd loop is easiest when you crochet loosely. A video is available for the 3rd loop. You may try to work with your hat right side in to get to the 3rd loop easily and turn it right side out when you get to the band. Scroll UP for the 3rd loop video!

Chain 28 (or Chain 22 for 16″ hat), join with a slip stitch to form a loop, chain 1, do not turn

Round 1: HDC in each chain around, slip stitch in the back bump of the second chain, chain 1, do not turn – total of 28 HDCs

Round 2: Working in the 3rd loop of each stitch, 2 DC in each around, do not join, do not turn, slip stitch in the back bump of the second chain – 56 DC total.
It will definitely be floopy at the top, but it won’t be floppy once it’s completed. It’s just a full size at the top to accommodate for comfort.

Round 3-11: Still working in the 3rd loop, DC in each around – 56 DC

Rounds 12-14: HDC in the 3rd loop around – 56 HDC

Rounds 15-16: SC in the 3rd loop around – 56 SC

Finishing: Slip stitch in the next 3rd loop, fasten off, and sew in the ends.
To make a full Beanie: You can HDC2TOG (hdc decrease) around for the next 1 or 2 rows depending on the height you want and weave it together like this!
