Easy Peasy Messy Bun Crochet Hat Pattern

Easy Peasy Messy Bun Crochet Hat Pattern

If you’ve been known to rock a bun or a ponytail, then say hello to your new favorite cold weather crochet accessory!

Who says you can’t rock an updo in the winter?  This messy bun crochet hat pattern is here to save the day.

This hat pattern is crocheted much like a regular beanie, but allows you to leave an opening at the crown to pull your messy bun or high ponytail through. That means no more hat hair. These are perfect for winter activities like skiing and skating, or just for braving the chilly weather.

I always get tons of compliments on this hat whenever I wear it, and it makes a perfect gift for friends and family members.

I always end up making several extra each year because I always get requests as soon as people see them. You can make this messy bun crochet hat in any color you’d like, and it’s a very beginner-friendly crochet pattern.

It’s guaranteed to be a knockout gift for anyone on your list, but I definitely wouldn’t blame you if you kept one all for yourself!
