The Mindless Messy Bun Hat

Happy Saturday all! Well just had to share this extremely easy Messy Bun Hat I made the other night! I wanted something that I totally didn’t have to think about while crocheting and this is what I came up with!  The “Mindless” Messy Bun Hat.  Click for pattern – Mindless Messy Bun Hat

This one is done from the Brim up and is all HDC’s (half double crochet) except the brim which is done in sc’s (single crochet). This works up extremely fast which is another Woo Hoo! Oh there’s also a video below the instructions.

 

Mindless Messy Bun Hat
Teen/Adult Size – fits 19 – 22 inch head

Materials Used:

Yarn: Loops & Thread Charisma – Chocolate Cupcake #5 Bulky
Hook: L/8mm Hook
Extras – Tapestry/Yarn Needle

Stitch Abbreviations:
Ch – Chain
sc – Single Crochet
hdc – Half Double Crochet
hdc2tog – half double crochet 2 together or also called HDC Dec – half double crochet decrease
YO – Yarn Over
sl st – slip stitch

Note: HDC2TOG – YO insert hook in next stitch, pull up a loop, YO insert hook in next stitch, You’ll have 5 Loops on your hook – YO and pull through all 5 loops on your hook. This is your HDC Decrease or HDC2TOG.

Instructions:

Brim: Ch 6
Row 1:  sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across, ch1, turn (5 sc)
Row 2: sc in next sc, sc in BLO in next 3 sc, sc in last sc, ch1, turn (5 sc)
Row 3 – 48: Repeat Row 2
Note – This for me worked up to about 19″ – my head is about 21 1/2 – this stretches so make sure you MEASURE around your own head as you go along. It will also stretch with wear.  If you are making for a child – there are many charts out there with basic head measurements.

Closing the Brim – Bring both ends together and sl st down going through both thicknesses. This is your seam so make sure you turn it inside before you start your Hat part. If you choose to.

Hat Part: ch 2 doesn’t count as a stitch unless otherwise noted
Row 1: ch 2, HDC evenly all around the brim, join to hdc, ch 2 (48 hdc)
Row 2 – 7: HDC in each across, join to hdc, ch 2 (48 hdc)  ***From Brim to here measured just a tad over 5″

Decreasing:
Row 8: (hdc in next 2 stitches, hdc2tog) – Repeat () around, join to hdc, ch 2 (26 hdc)
Row 9: (hdc in next 2 stitches, hdc2tog) – Repeat () around, join to hdc, ch 2 (27hdc)
Row 10: (hdc in next 2 stitches, hdc2tog) – Repeat () around, join to hdc, ch 2 (21 hdc)
FO – and weave in all yarn ends with your needle.

Hope you enjoyed this SUPER easy “Mindless” messy bun hat!  Questions comments leave me a comment!

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 Craftin’,
Yvonne Metz
