Crochet bun up hat

Crochet bun up hat

Crochet messy bun or pony tail beanie is a trend now. I would ride that wind xD

My design for this new craze is type of an adjustable hole in the head hat with drawstring-made by worsted weight yarn, colorwork and slanted shell stitches. You can show off your messy bun/ pony tail or wear it as a common beanie when your hair is down.

Note: I used chainless starting dc for every first dc of each round/row instead of ch 3. There’s another good crochet technique to use is ch 2, dc into same stitch ( counted as 1st dc). In the pattern below you’ll see I simply state dc into 1st stitch for every first dc of each round/row, so just choose your best technique 🙂
