Messy Bun Crochet Beanie Pattern

PATTERN UPDATED ON 12/19/16

Yesterday, my facebook BLEW UP with friends posting a picture of a crocheted Beanie with a messy bun sticking out....on my wall asking "Can you make this?" "OMG! How much would you charge me if you made this?" "I would buy 3 of these if you made them"
I woke up this morning determined to make something similar to this beanie. So I did.


I only have a written pattern (down below) I have not made a photo pattern because I have a 3 month old and am surprised that I even finished it today.

SO ENJOY THIS PATTERN AND FEEL FREE TO SHARE YOUR FINISHED PRODUCTS WITH ME OR ANY TIPS/TRICKS YOU DID ALONG THE WAY.

  1. I have seen one like this that they crocheted around a ponytail holder. Looks like I will try this one for a g-daughter.

    1. Varies. 1st row 50, others are 62... crossstitches count 2 stitches as 1, so 31 crosses.

    1. Once you reach stitch 60 you should have two stitches left just put a single DC in each

      I will modify that

  6. Round 3 I came up with the 62 stitches.....but row 4, I can only come up with 31 cross stitches... I've done it twice and I still can't figure it out :/

    1. Yes. you should only come up with 31 cross stitches

    2. In row four, what stitches and how many are in between the cross stitches? The instructions are not clear to me. It sounds like you are working backwards. How do you get 31 cross stitches when there are 62 stitches?

    3. 2 stitches form an X or cross, so count as 1 stitch.

  8. I have just crocheted 24 foundation less double crochets and then joined and stayed on most any other pattern's row 3. I think I will try yours next.

  9. Stitch count is not right if you double crochet 51 then when you get to row 2 and follow pattern you end up with 64 I'm confused

    1. That was a typo...thank you for letting me know. I'll change it to 50

  10. Do you leave a long tail of yarn after the first round? And then what do they do with it after they adjusted it around their ponytail? I've done one but I started by crocheting around a ponytail holder .

    1. I don't think it is meant to be adjusted around the Ponytail, but meant to be left as a large hole. I weaved in the tail into my work, but like the idea of a ponytail holder also.

    2. I left the string because you can pull it to loosen/tighten it. I just tuck it into the inside of the hat when wearing it.

  11. I am not meaning to be rude or anything, but do people not read your pattern, most questions asked the answer is in the pattern.
    Awesome pattern. Thanks for your work.

  12. Love the pattern, and thanks for sharing. A little tip I figured out on the cross stitches: after the first TC, wrap yarn over hook 1 time, move hook to other side of just completed TC, wrap yarn over again. Working between, insert hook into previous DC and pull yarn through. Still in between, wrap yarn over hook and pull through 2 loops. Move hook to other side of completed TC and finish TC with yarn over hook and pulling through 2 loops 2 more times. This gives the cross stitch more of an X look. Otherwise, I was getting a V look.

  13. Love the pattern! Only thing I did differently was hdc's around a ponytail holder and slipped the chain 2 and just ch 3 to start each round. Made 2 for my teenage granddaughters. Going to make a couple for myself also! I don't usually wear hats because of my long hair being in a ponytail or a bun.
