Well it was one of those weekends! It was the anniversary of my mom’s passing – 12 years and I was missing her. So….what do I do to get out of my funk? Crochet of course!
Really, it was something that kept my fingers moving, accomplish something that my daughter needed, and also allowed a little meditation time. Don’t you need that too once in a while – Of course you do.
So…….my daughter has been talking about a messy bun hat for a year and hasn’t had time to make one with her new little one. I jumped on Pinterest and found some great free patterns. The first one I did was pretty simple. What I like the most of this was that it had a fold over brim. I also found this site that many of you might enjoy! Its Naztzia. The creator offers free patterns in knitting and crochet. Here is the link to the pattern I used for my first hat. http://naztazia.com/patterns/crochet/accessories/hats/crochet-messy-bun-hat.html
The second hat I did in a variegated yarn and it did not require a pony tail elastic as the first one did. This one I found at Yarn Ballin It was named Katniss Messy Bun Hat Pattern. The site requires that you enroll with your email. The pattern is free and very easy to follow.
Both hats took me an evening each and they were not difficult to complete. My daughter gets one and another lucky girl will get the other to get through our Michigan winter. Have you created bun hats or pony tail hats? Share them with us.
