The latest trend in the crochet world are these Messy-bun hats. I enjoy them because they are perfect for those days that I just don’t want to put in a lot of effort into my hair but still need to wear a hat for the cold temperatures. Also trending right now are fur pom-poms, so I decided to combine the two and create this pretty and fun Messy-Bun Hat.
– ½ skein Lionbrand Landscapes in Taupe, worsted weight yarn (MC).
– ½ skein Redheart Boutique Unforgettable in Tealberry, worsted weight yarn (CC).
– Fur Pom-Pom Hair Tie
– 2 Small Fur Pom-Poms
– Size I (5.5mm) Crochet Hook
Gauge: 4 sts x 3 rows = 1″ x 1″ over hdc
|ch(s) = Chain(s)
sp(s) = space(s)
st(s) = stitch(es)
sl st = Slip Stitch
sk = Skip
|sc = Single Crochet
hdc = Half Double Crochet
dc = Double Crochet
RS = Right Side
WS = Wrong Side
FO = Finish Off
Messy-Bun Hat – Adult:
Round 1: With MC and I (5.5mm) hook and starting at the bottom (the furthest away from the fur pom-pom, work 20 hdc around the hair tie, then taking the arm behind the fur pom-pom (so that the fur pom-pom sits on top of the right side of the stitches), work another 20 hdc around the other side of the hair tie. (40)
Round 2: *hdc 4, 2 hdc* around. (48)
Round 3: *hdc 5, 2 hdc* around. (56)

Round 7: Ch 2 (ch 2 does not count as a st, can use the Standing crochet technique instead to leave the beginning ch-2 out entirely), dc 3 in same st, sk 2 sts, sc in next dc, *sk 2 sts, 5 dc in sc, sk 2 sts, sc in next dc* around. sk 2 sts, dc 2 in same st as beginning st, sl st to 1st dc (not ch-2).

Love this pattern a lot. Very much different as compared to other messy bun hats 🙂
Thanks for the free pattern! In the picture it looks like there are 12 rows of the shell stitch, but the pattern states there are only 7.
