“Messy Bun” hat,. that is what I was thinking of this week. I wanted to work on a Messy Bun” hat that I could use during warmer weather. This is important because I live in Sunny Southern California and rarely have days that are cold enough to warrant wearing a hat. Even our winters are usually mild. This year thankfully we have received more rain than the last 15 years. This is great because California has been in a severe drought for the past 5 years.
I want to be ready for the warmer weather and hopefully, by that time, my hair will have grown enough to put it in a pony-tail. This post includes the written pattern and video link for my free YouTube video for those who prefer to watch a video.

The inspiration for this hat while I was working on a shawl for my aunt. I was using a shell stitch and thought about how I really like that stitch, especially when the shells increase each row. I did a little few math calculations. (Remember when you thought back in school that you would never use math? Well, here I am using the stuff I learned back then.) After a few attempt, I came out with a hat that satisfied m. I hope you enjoy this hat pattern. I love how it kinda of has a little of a vintage look and it’s so sweet and feminine.
If you are a fan of “Messy bun” hats I shared an earlier version a few weeks ago. That hat is so fast and easy and uses a simple “mock” ribbing edge. If you want to see that post please click here: http://allcraftschannel.com/2016/12/easy-crochet-messy-beanie.html
