I had a friend ask me to make some of these hats the other day, and Im excited to get started on them! This pattern is super easy, Im almost finished with the first one, and it has only taken me a couple hours to do! I cant wait to make a bunch more in different colors!

I love this hat. I always wear my hair up, so I never wear a regular beanie/hat. I made this for myself out of some vintage wool that I had, and it is wonderful. I hardly ever take it off when the weather is cold. This is a very easy pattern that anyone could make.

Wow, I see pictures and patterns for these hats everywhere. I have yet to actually see anyone in person wearing one though. Could be a regional thing. The colors chosen for this hat are awesome and so boho chic. If I had long enough hair for a bun/pony tail, I would definitely want one in these colors.

This is the first time I have followed one of your patterns or tutorials. Love it. Very easily explained. Very easy to follow. I will definitely put you in my list to watch for patterns

Talk about a coincidence. My daughter in law just asked me today if I make messy bun hats. I had no idea what she was talking about. Then I saw this. I said, oh, you mean a pony tail hat? I must say this is a very easy one to make and I love double crochet. So now I have to hurry and make one up for my daughter in law for Christmas.thanks for sharing this easy pattern.
