Basic Skills Necessary:

Pattern Description:

I have 3 daughters, all of which have long hair. When they wear their hats, they are always having to fashion their hair around them. As a crocheting mom I thought, why not fashion the hat around their hair? I went looking for a pattern for a ponytail hat. I found a couple, but was not real thrilled with them. So, I created my own pattern! This is a 3 in 1 hat... it can be worn with the hair down as a regular beanie. You can also pull your hair through the top, and tie the pull strings into a bow around your ponytail. Last, you can loosen the top, pull the hat down down over your head, tie a bow with the pull strings and wear it as a cowl scarf. One hat... so many ways to wear it!


  • 1.5 oz of worsted weight yarn (Main color), 1 oz. of worsted weight yarn (Secondary color) and a size H crochet hook.

Preferred Brand/Yarn:

I used Red Heart
