Crochet Hat Pattern -- Messy Bun / Ponytail (Show-My-Messy-Bun-Off Hat)
This is an attractive and practical hat for folks -- men or women -- with long hair. The crochet technique used is quite stretchy, so the hat stays on snug, while letting your ponytail or messy bun hang out freely.
Thank you for checking out my messy bun / ponytail hat!
This crochet pattern for a messy bun hat is suitable for an INTERMEDIATE crocheter. It uses standard US English crochet terminology. It has been tested for clarity and accuracy by a professional crochet designer. In addition, it contains step-by-step how-to photos. I am confident this pattern will make for a happy crochet experience (and a very nice hat).
This hat is worked in the round utilizing crochet chains and single crochet stitches. The crochet chains are then laddered up (like making chains from chains) to give the hat its crochet cable effect. This technique is a variation on Jacobs Ladder and it is not difficult. This hat’s stretchy-ness also makes it one-size-fits-most -- suitable for most adult heads.
I am available to answer questions, should you have any.
Thanks again for stopping by.

I absolutely love to crochet! My mother taught me how when I was five years old, and it occupied a lot of my childhood.
It was during my time living in Bulgaria, as a U.S. Peace Corps volunteer, that I first began to dream about writing and publishing my own crochet patterns.
As the years passed, work became my main focus, but I continued to dream about becoming a crochet designer and I collected inspiration from the many different places I was working in and traveling to: Bulgaria, Boston, Germany, Canada, Ireland (to name a few).
It was the birth of my son, ultimately, that finally gave me the opportunity to realize my dream. When my son was a baby, I wrote and published two crochet books (Painted Jute Rugs, Annie’s Attic, 2010 & Elegant Beaded Bags, Leisure Arts, 2013).
When my son began school my focus shifted to selling patterns online. I have been having the absolute time of my life -- crocheting, imagining crochet, writing about crochet, and engaging with many amazing crochet-lovers in online communities!
Home is now Toronto in Canada.
Thanks for reading my profile. I hope you will find a design in my shop that inspires you (the way it did me) to stitch up something beautiful.
