Messy Bun Hat


"The Messy Bun Hat is a cute hat that has a whole in the top to pull your hair through to make a “messy bun” or a ponytail, keeping your head and ears warm while you wear your hair the way you like it. It is made sideways while shaping at the same time, seamed and then edged. This works up quickly and is full of style and texture to keep you on trend in fashion."

I love these messy bun hat patterns! They seemed to be all the rage last year, but I have not been asked for any this year. I suppose that is alright, considering I have many other projects going! I bought some of the new Pantone yarn by Caron and I think I am going to try to use it to make this hat.
