On-Trend Messy Bun Hat Free Crochet Pattern

Pattern #: LW5606
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 402 Foggy
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.

Directions are for size Small. Changes for size Large are in parentheses.

Hat measures 20 (22½)” [51 (57) cm] circumference at brim.
