Free & Simple Crochet Messy Bun Hat Pattern

After having some success with my paid Messy Bun Ponytail Hat pattern I decided to create a free version of a messy bun hat.  This pattern still uses a bulky yarn which allows for you to create this hat in an hour or less.  It is worked from the top down.

Materials, notes and stitches: 8.00mm crochet hook, #5 Bulky yarn, yarn needle, work in back loop only (unless specified not to), single crochet (sc), extended single crochet (esc), stitch (st), chain (ch)

Foundation: Ch 22, sl st to join.

Rnd 1: Ch 1, esc in each ch around, sl st to join (22 esc)

Rnd 2: Ch 1, *1 esc in next 2 sts, 2 esc in next st, rpt from * around, 1 esc in last st, sl st to join (29 esc).

Rnd 3: Ch 1, *1 esc in next 3 sts, 2 esc in next st, rpt from * around ending with a 1 esc in last st, sl st to join (36 esc).

Rnd 4: Ch 1, *1 esc in next 5 sts, 2 esc in next st, rpt from * around sl st to join (42 esc).

Rnds 5-10: Ch 1, 1 esc in each st around, sl st to join (42 esc).

Rnd 11: (still in back loop only) Ch 1, sc in each st around, sl st to join (42 sc).

Rnds 12-14: (in both loops) Ch 1, sc in each st around, sl st to join (42 sc).  Fasten off.

Have fun with this hat and experiment with different bulky yarn.  Add a button or two to the hat.  You can also try a two toned version where the section with extended single crochets are one color and the brim of single crochets is a contrasting color.

I’d love to see if you make any of these! tag #JLPCraftyCreations
