Pick Your Pony Crochet Bun Hat
"The “messy bun” hat has taken the crochet world by storm, and for the last few weeks the requests for a Moogly version have been pouring in. Well, you know I had to add my own spin to it - and that’s the Pick Your Pony Beanie! Why the weird name? Well, it’s a ponytail hat/messy bun hat that doesn’t require your ponytail to stay put! You get to decide where your bun or ponytail is on your head - this hat works with every style. Even side ponytails (hey, everything comes around again… right?)! The opening in the Pick Your Pony Beanie is made by working the hat in increasing rows, rather than rounds. With two buttons on the brim, you can adjust this hat to fit every hairstyle, and the thick ribbing keeps your noggin and ears warm and cozy. And it’s just about as easy as can be, in two sizes to fit just about anyone old enough to have hair!"

I am glad that I waited before making one of these pony tail hats. This one designed by Tamara Kelly hits the spot. Having the built in slit makes so much common sense that I know I will enjoy wearing this design. I have locks and they are not like a normal pony tail. It is like they have a mind of their own and have a slit will be a great plus for me. Thanks for weighing in on the pony tail hat issue.

I really like the concept of an opening for your ponytail here on this crochet bun hat. I guess until you have to pull your pony tail through an opening you just can't appreciate an item such as this one. This project is one that I am kicking myself asking, now why didn't I think of that.
