Boho Crochet Messy Bun Hat: free pattern

free crochet ponytail hat pattern bohoI have been working on this design for a while and it was supposed to be an ear warmer at first. After some crocheting, though, I knew I wanted to turn it into one of these super practical messy bun hats that nearly broke the internet. The pattern is not necessarily for beginners (unless you are ambitious!) but it’s a really fun, boho – y stitch combination. I just love the texture and it combines everything I enjoy about crochet! I think it is well worth learning and maybe you’ll want to make a cowl or scarf with these stitches as well. Keep reading for the free crochet Messy Bun hat pattern!

Materials needed to make the free crochet messy bun hat pattern

A heavy Aran worsted weight yarn. I used Jo Ann’s Big twist Premium yarn in cocoa.

A 6.5 mm US size K hook (I love the Clover Amour jumbo hooks. For a comprehensive hook review please read this post!)

Lowest prices on the best yarn - guaranteed at knitpicks.com

A yarn needle

Pattern Notes

This yarn is labeled as worsted but not all worsted yarns are created equal. It’s almost a bulky/ chunky weight, in my opinion. Please make a gauge swatch: 10 dc x 6 rows are 3.5 ” x 4″

and try it on for size after Row 2!

ABBREVIATIONS:

Ch… chain

Sc… single crochet

Hdc… half double crochet

Dc… double crochet

fpdc …. front post double crochet

chdc … crossed half double crochet: sk next st, hdc in next st, hdc in previously skipped st

hdc2tog … half double crochet two together = make a half double crochet decrease

sc2tog … single crochet two together + make a single crochet decrease
