Crochet Messy Bun Hat Free Pattern

Crochet Messy Bun Hat Free Pattern

Alright, I finally made a messy bun hat.  I said that I wouldn’t ever make one, but they are pretty neat.  This hat is a part of my ‘odds-and-ends’ projects.  I wasn’t sure how this hat would turn out so I decided to just use some odds and ends to complete it.  In the pattern below, I change colour every row.  This was to break it up because I didn’t have enough of any one colour to complete the hat.  For your own hat, you don’t have to change colours, actually, I suggest maybe 2 colours max for this hat to keep it classy.  This hat is fun looking, it is very busy, but still so unique.

In the pattern below, I am not going to mention changing colours only because I change colours every row.  If you wish to change up the colours for yourself, you can do that at any time.
