Crochet Messy Bun Hat

The cyber world is abuzz in my neck of the woods, with this hat that everyone is in love with, and I can see why. 
It's adorable. 
And anyone with enough hair for a ponytail or a messy bun is in for a treat with this hat! 

When several of my friends and my sister all inquired to me, asking if I had seen the hat and if I could make it, I knew it was something I needed to try. Not having a pattern, nor looking for one, I decided to give it a go myself and I'm going to share my pattern here with you.





***Please note, I am not a professional crocheter or pattern maker, this is just what I did***

    1. Hi Vickie! I used a size K crochet hook and I used the Lionsbrand yarn called Landscapes. It's super soft and warm. I think it is PERFECT for this project! Thanks so much for stopping by! :)

  6. What changes , if any, should I make if I use a bulky type yarn? Love this hat. Going to make it for adult granddaughter who works out in the cold at a tire shop.

    1. Hi Linda! If I were using a bulkier yarn, I probably would have to be careful to adjust to the size of her head. Because 25 double crochets in this yarn will be much smaller than 25 in a bulky. I'm not certain how to gauge down except to say that I would try it on my head or one of my daughters to make sure it is fitting properly. I hope that helps a little! I'd love to see how it turns out!
      Blessings,
      Chas

  7. How much yarn does it take? Will 1 skein be enough? Thanks Much.

    1. Hi Frances! It took about one skein of yarn for me. But, I would definitely say that it really depends on the yarn. A smaller/thinner yarn will take more, for sure.
      Thank you so much for visiting!
      Blessings,

    1. The yarn I used for this is 147 yards long, and it did not take all of it. There was a small remnant over.
