Retro Messy Bun Hat Crochet Pattern
"This fun yellow hat will be sure to brighten up any gloomy day – even though you can choose whichever color you’d like. People won’t be able to help but ask you where you go your cheerful headpiece from. In this easy to intermediate pattern, you’ll begin by creating the band. Next, you’ll work your way up to making the rest of the hat and finally add whatever button you may choose. For yarn, we chose merino wool because it’s warm, soft, and breathable. It doesn’t have any of that itchy and scratchy feeling you might associate with wool."
Notes(anything important that should be added):
Ch – chain, sc – single crochet, st(s) – stitch(es), yoh – yarn over hook, sl/st – slip stitch
In round 1 of the beanie portion randomly place the 50 sc around the top as evenly spaced as you can.
The beanie portion is worked in the round
You will be working with 2 colors of yarn starting in round 3 of the beanie portion. I find it easiest to attach the second color by leaving a long tail and crocheting over it with the first color. I carry my second color of yarn on top of the previous row of stitches.

Im having some problems with this project. I understand how to create the brim and the requisite flap. I understand how to start on the body of the hat, but when it comes to attaching the accent yarn (referred to as A because its the same yarn as the brim), it gets a little muddled. It looks like the rounds are done using the Tapestry technique, but how does the accent yarn progress up the hat?
