Messy Bun Crochet Hat
"What makes it different from the other cute messy bun hats is that it can be made into a beanie as well. One pattern, two finishing options. That’s basically a two for one, right? This hat pattern has a really retro vibe to me due to its more rounded shape. Plus, mustard always has me feeling vintage. This messy bun hat can be turned into a beanie by simply pulling the tail to cinch it closed. Or, keep it as a messy bun hat by sewing in your ends. It uses alternating stitches for a simple texture, and it’s perfect for anyone who loves a little retro in their lives."
NotesWorked from the top down in rounds. Slip stitch counts as a stitch. Do not chain. Do not turn your work.
