Hey there! I hope 2017 has been good for you and yours so far!
The messy bun hat has been all the rage lately, so I thought I’d throw my hat into the ring 🙂 with my version of the messy bun hat crochet pattern!
This pattern is really easy to work up as the most complicated stitch is DC2TOG (crochet 2 double crochet stitches together). There are several ways to do the DC2TOG, and several tutorials online that will show you how.
This pattern is meant to be a one size fits most for women. This pattern fits me a bit snugly, but I have a big head – my hat size is 7 5/8. 🙂

I just made my first one yesterday and was pleased with it. I had used a chunky yarn and it is so so warm. Now, I’m trying a skinner yarn and see how different it comes out. Love your beanie!! High Five for Messy Bun Hats! #TurnItUpTuesdays
Thanks so much Selena! 🙂 I’ve found making these to be quite habit-forming- I’m on my third one already!
What a brilliant solution for that lump of a bun or ponytail under my hat. I’m pinning now so I can make my own hat later. Thanks for sharing at the #ThisIsHowWeRoll Link Party.
Right? I love crochet hats, but always hated how I would have a big lump where my hair bun was. When I saw these bun hat patterns popping up all over Pinterest, I said YES! And I knew I had to make a bun hat pattern of my own! 🙂
I’m glad you like it, and thanks for hosting the link party!
