Messy Bun Beanie

Can you believe that 2017 has arrived? It's actually frightening how quick the years are flying by. It has come to a point where I'm thinking I shouldn't blink from now on! But seriously guys and dolls, I want to wish you all a very happy new year and I hope 2017 brings you all nothing but happiness.

Okay as you have noticed by the title of this pattern, I have jumped onto the messy bun beanie bandwagon. How amazing are these beanies! My hair is constantly tied up but when I want to wear a beanie there's always a big lump on the top of my head where my hair has bunched underneath. So having beanie with a hole on the top makes perfect sense, right?!



To make this messy bun beanie you will need a worsted weight yarn or an aran weight yarn will also work. I used a 6mm crochet hook to make an adult sized hat but I have found that by using a 5mm hook will make a hat fit for a small child.

Start by making a chain of 22. Slip stitch to the first chain to form a circle.

Chain 3 (counts as the first dc here and throughout) and double crochet all the way around. Slip stitch to the top of the chain 3.

Chain 3 and make a double crochet into the same stitch. Then make 2 double crochets into each stitch around. Slip stitch into the top of the chain 3.

Chain 3,then make a double crochet into the next two stitches. Then make 2 double crochets into the fourth stitch. Continue on this round by making *1 double crochet into the next 3 stitches and then 2 double crochets into the fourth stitch*. Repeat from *to* to the end of this round. Slip stitch to the top of the chain 3.

Chain 3 and make a double crochet into each stitch around. Slip stitch into the top of the chain 3. Repeat this row until your beanie has a total of 10 rounds.

Chain 3 and make a *front post double crochet (fpdc) into the next stitch and a back post double crochet (bpdc) into the following stitch*. Repeat from *to* to the end of the round. Then slip stitch to the top of the chain 3.

Repeat this last round three more times.

Fasten off and weave in your ends.
