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.
