Easy Peasy Messy Bun Crochet Hat Pattern
"Who says you can’t rock an updo in the winter? This messy bun hat pattern is here to save the day. This hat pattern is crocheted much like a regular beanie, but allows you to leave an opening at the crown to pull your messy bun or high ponytail through. That means no more hat hair. These are perfect for winter activities like skiing and skating, or just for braving the chilly weather. You can make this in any color you’d like, and it’s a very beginner friendly pattern. It’s guaranteed to be a knockout gift for anyone on your list, but I definitely wouldn’t blame you if you kept one all for yourself!"
