Messy Bun Hats!
You've probably been seeing these trending all over the internet in the crochet world and of course I got a request to make some so I jumped on the bandwagon and made my own design. I really haven't played around with crocheted cables enough, they are so fun!
I don't normally jump into the trends that take over the crochet community because after a while it's literally all your going to see for the next 2-3 months, but this was just too cute. Now I'm just waiting to see if anyone tries a planned pooling messy bun hat!
I left the last Round of the hat optional just in case you want the hole at the top to be smaller, but its all about your preference.
Please let me know what you think and enjoy!
The hat starts at the brim sideways in single crochet back loop only which is slip stitched together and without fastening off you work into the row edges of the brim.
