Pattern Details

How much fun are these? Super easy to make using one skein of bulky weight (5) yarn. So quick and easy, you can crochet one in about one hour. I’m gifting these to college bound girls, my hairdresser and jogger friend. Would be a great teacher gift too! You’ll be working in the round, from the top down, over an elastic hair tie, and it’s so easy to make it any size you need. You should be able to hook one in about one hour. Messy bun hats are all over the internet! I'd put the skill level at advanced beginner or better. I give you all the yarn brands for all photos shown.

Recommended with this pattern

  • Lion Brand Wool Ease Tonal
  • Crochet hook size J/10 6.00mm
  • One elastic hair tie

I was taught to knit by my mother in my teens in the '70's and I quickly went from that to cross stitch and then needlepoint. Life goes on to a full time job, marriage, a child and then in early in 2004, I was forced to stay off my feet. I pick up the needles and started with knitting a scarf and then another, and then another. Next thing I know, I have 50 of them. Off to a local art gallery I go to peddle my wares. They loved and sold them all. Creative Design was born. Three upscale children's boutiques and women's wear shops later, here I am. Fingers flyin' with an Etsy shop sheilalikestoknit and lovin' Craftsy! I can most often be found in "my chair" surrounded by a pile of yarn, fabric, more yarn, needles, another pile of yarn, patterns, more fabric...etc. We love to travel, eat good food, be with family and great friends. Knitwear: my handmade knitwear is lovingly created by me. The process of choosing great fabric and yarn colors is half the fun. Knitting it all up and seeing it come together is wonderful and the final moment of seeing this creation around someones neck, on a little body, noggin or in their stroller is the BEST. My Philosophy: I am committed to quality fabric and fiber. Attention to detail, craftsmanship and customer satisfaction will always be part of that philosophy.
