Childs’ Messy Bun Hat Free Crochet Pattern

Pattern #: LW5607
Designed by: Katy Petersen

Skill Level: Beginner

Using jumbo yarn and a big hook, this bun hat can be crocheted in record time. Working around an elastic band ponytail holder for your first round leaves a hole just the right size to allow your messy bun to stay outside your hat.

Materials:
RED HEART® Grande™: 1 ball 275 Nectar
Susan Bates® Crochet Hook: 11.5mm [US P-16]
Yarn needle
Elastic ponytail holder

Gauge/Tension:     6 dc = 4½” (11.5 cm); 4 rows = 4″ (10 cm). CHECK YOUR GAUGE. Use any size hook to obtain gauge.

Hat measures 18” (45.7 cm)” circumference at brim.

Notes
1. Hat is worked in joined rounds with right side facing.
2. You will be working stitches around the ponytail holder.
