Messy Bun Madness

Well it’s the weekend and I’ve got some time to post! Woo Hoo! Well the “Messy Bun” craze has not faded out! I have to say that these are just AWESOME! I’m completely hooked on Making them and pictured below are my 2 Favorite ones to make!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Grey one is called the “Katniss” Messy Bun hat inspired by the cowl worn by Katniss in the Movie “Hunger Games”.  I just absolutely LOVE the texture of this Messy Bun Beanie.  The next is the Cable Messy Bun Hat – This is also one of my favorites to make. Love how Elegant this hat looks.

These patterns are from a friend I met in a Facebook Crochet Group “Diana B” – I was lucky enough to test her patterns! She also created a Crochet Group which I’m a part of where she shares her patterns FREELY.  The name of the Group is Crochet Messy  Bun
The group is growing fast with almost 10,000 Members!  All patterns on this group are FREE.  I’ve also with her permission made some Videos for her patterns.  I have made a total of 3 – adding the 2 in the photos below. – Never thought I’d be doing videos but there was so many asking questions about the “Katniss” Beanie that thought it would be a good idea.  Thank you Diana for allowing me to share your Beautiful Creations!

Well thanks for taking the time to visit – will be back with more shares and as always,

Happy New Year All!

I know it’s been way to long since I posted! I totally just have had to  put this on the back burner!

I also have to apologize for those looking for the 18″ Doll Mermaid Pattern and couldn’t get it to download your messages went straight to SPAM and I never was notified of your posts! I would of responded sooner had I known!  Now I think it’s been fixed! If not please let me know I was able to open it.

So wanted to share FIRST – what I had been working on towards the end of 2016! These Chunky Beanies and Slouchy Beanies – Got this great pattern from “Alexis Middleton” on YouTube.  She’s got a great “Cat Hat” video also which I’ll share those pics later too!  I’ve also been making the ever POPULAR “Messy Bun” or “Mom Bun” Beanies – that will be my next post!

I have already added these hats that are pictured to my Etsy shop which you’ll find in the right hand corner.

Thanks for stopping by and I plan to be blogging ALOT more this year as I’ve got LOTS to share with you all!
