Messy bun hats were all over the internet this winter! This bad hair day savior is cozy, stylish and comfortable for all day wear. There is an elastic hair tie at the opening on the top to easily get your bun or ponytail into. Will fit a 7 year old child up to an adult woman. I used a wool/acrylic blend yarn that is machine washable and dry-able. 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'd rate this as an advanced beginner pattern.
