Crochet Mommy and Me Messy Bun Hats

messybunhat2

I’m sure many of you have seen the latest crochet trend: Messy Bun Hats! Also known as pony tail hat, these beanies have a hole at the top for your hair to hang through. A fun and functional look! I’ve created a quick and easy version using the cluster v-stitch. The pattern comes in child and adult sizes but keep in mind that because of the cluster v-stitch, there is a lot of stretch to the hat so these hats will fit a wide range of heads! You can always make it longer by adding in a row or two as well.

Materials:
Bernat Super Value Yarn in Natural and Aqua (one skein of each). Feel free to choose your own color combos! Choose from 74 shades of Bernat Super Value at Yarnspirations.com
– Size H crochet hook
NOTE: I crochet loosely. Go up a hook size or two and add more rows to the bottom of your hat if you need to make it bigger!
– Tapestry Needle

Note: It took me less than half of each skein to make both of these hats and I was able to make both in just 1 hour! So simple! Once you get the hang of it, you won’t even need to look at the pattern :)

I attempted a short video… I apologize for the low quality. I am working on my video tutorial skills. I just don’t have the right equipment or set up right now. But I’m posting anyway in hopes that this helps a few of you!

I also love Messy Bun Hats, so I am looking for how to make pony tail hat which is give fun and functional look and I found your blog. I am very happy. Professionally I am providing online dissertation help to UK students but I like to do such kind of activity. Thanks for sharing here Materials to make hat and also video which is very easy to understand. Now I would definitely trying to making this hat. Thanks for sharing.

If you read the instructions it states that she chained and then did single crochets around the chin. Making the chain her (elastic ponytail)

Since I’m a new self taught beginner is there any way to post a tutorial on the child’s hat?
I still am having a hard time reading the pattern…thanks

Hey, what yarn can I used instead if I’m in the U.K. Is the yarn you used the equivalent of Aran yarn in the U.K.? Thank you. Can’t wait to try this hat. Xx

i did at first too! you need to make another v cluster in the space between the clusters after your 23rd v cluster. hope this helps!

Quick pattern correction: in both child and adult patterns instead of it saying “Round 1” it starts with round 2 and then the next round also says round 2. :)

Thanks again for another great pattern!! :)

Thank you for one of the best looking and simple Messy bun cap I have seen. I hooked one up this afternoon and will be doing a few more before Christmas day. I did change one thing, I did my first round of sc around a large hairband. Thanks again

Does this help the hat from wearing out and keep it stretchy??

I did the singles around the chain and it makes it kind of stiff… I thought maybe it might make it hard to get around a messy bun… Especially if you have a lot of hair…

I love this hat and have tried to start one, but I can’t figure out how to get 24 SC from the chain 20 at the beginning.

I’m making it for my 8yr old daughter and it was too short. I’m adding several more rows; 3 more as of now. When she gets home from school we will see if it is enough.

Could you tell me the width and length of the child size hat you made. I made both sizes, but both ended up coming out to 7″ in height. I am not sure if this is too long for a child.

Hey, thank you for the lovely pattern. I just wanted to confirm how the cluster V stitch is done. Is it basically like dc2 together followed by ch1 and a dc 2 together all done in the same space? I feel there is something missing in the instructions. Cant wait to begin though. Thanks!

Good morning..
Could you please clarify round #4? I am just learning to read patterns and am not sure where to put the increases.
Thanks in advance
Debbie

By the way these are the sweetest pictures ever!!

I have one edit to make the directions for the cluster stitch easier….

“Cluster V-Stitch: Yarn over hook, insert hook through stitch AND PULL UP LOOP, yarn over the hook and pull through two loops. You still have two loops remaining on the hook. Yarn over hook and insert it through the same stitch and PULL UP LOOP. Yarn over the hook and pull through two loops and then yarn over again and pull it through 3 loops remaining on hook. (This is the first half of your cluster stitch) Chain 1. Yarn over hook, insert hook through same stitch AND PULL UP LOOP, yarn over the hook and pull through two loops. You still have two loops remaining on the hook. Yarn over hook and insert it through the same stitch and PULL UP LOOP. Yarn over the hook and pull through two loops and then yarn over again and pull it through 3 loops remaining on hook.”

I just love making crochet items from your patterns. I came up with my own pattern for a messy bun beanie, but I can’t wait to start on one like yours tonight!!!!

Very simple messy bun beanie:
Ch 24, join with ss. Ch1,
Round 1: 2hdc in first ch, 1 hdc in next 6 ch., repeat around till last 3 ch, put 1 hdc in each remaining ch. join and ch 1(27)
Round 2: 2 HDC in first stitch, HDC in next 2, Repeat around, join, chain 1 (36 HDC)
Round 3: 2 HDC in first stitch, HDC in next 3, Repeat around, join, chain 1 (45 HDC)
Round 4: 2 HDC in first stitch, HDC in next 4, Repeat around, join, chain 1 (54 HDC)
Round 5: HDC around, join, chain 1 (54 HDC
Round 6: 2 HDC in first stitch, HDC in next 8, Repeat around (60 HDC)
Round 7: 2 HDC in first stitch, HDC in next 9, Repeat around, join, chain 1 (66 HDC)
Round 8 -14: HDC in each stitch around, join, chain 1 (66 HDC)
Round 15 – 18: FPHDC in first stitch, BPHDC in next, repeat around, join, chain 1 (66)
Fasten off weave in ends.
***Depending on yarn and how tightly you crochet, you may need to increase round 8 – 14 an extra row. Should be about 6-1/2 to 7″ before adding rim

Love this hat but I can’t figure out how the increases work. I’m fine up to row 4 but cannot figure out how you went from 12 stitches to 18. Please clarify, thanks!

So I made the adult version of this and it barely touches the tops of my ears! I followed the pattern exactly and I’m certain I didn’t skip any rounds. Please help me out.

I had the same problem. I ended up repeating rows 7-10 several more times, the get the proper length. I can’t find anywhere that s nations gauge. Only size H hook, but i have noticed that the lettering and mm size are different depending on the brand of hooks.

I love the pattern, but they don’t sell that yarn around me. I have tried Vanna and I Love This Yarn and both turn out too short and dont’ cover my ears (and I have a small head). If I add an extra round of cluster stitches then it throws off the color pattern. What is a comparable yarn to use?

I added two rows of the cluster V rounds in the adult pattern using I love this Yarn. It is a perfect fit and the colors match up. I also did the first row around a hair elastic instead of a chain for a stretchy hole on the top. Great pattern, Thanks!!

Hi, my child size just fits my 3 yr old, but my adult size came out to big. Do you have any tips or know how this may have happen? I was very diligent on counting stiches, so I’m not to sure what happened. Thanks,
Rebekah

These hats are beautiful! Is carry the yarn and seaming them very hard.?I really have a horrible time with seaming.

Just absolutely beautiful and very impressive work you’ve done there.

Thank you for sharing.

I love the way these look but mine keep coming out super loose feeling and I’m a tight crocheter. Hoping I can figure out how to modify this for my friend and her daughter.

Hi! Love this pattern and thickness of the hats. But I made the child size and it’s really small. I don’t crochet too tight or too loose. My youngest is 9 but she’s really small for her age and it doesn’t fit her. The hat is 16″ circumference and 6.5″ length. Did I do something wrong?

Were you able to figure out the sizing for a child? I increased my hook to a 6mm and added 2 extra row of v-stitches. My final result is meant to fit a child of 4-10 years. It measures 18″ hat circumference to fit a head 18-20″. And it came out to the same length as my adult size of 7″. I know the circumference will fit a child just fine, but I am puzzled if it came out a bit too long for a child.

I know you said that they stretch because of the cluster V stitch, I was wondering if you thought that the child would stretch enough to fit a 10 year old? Your patterns are always great! I just finished up an adult size last night! :)

Thank you for this pattern!
I’m finishing up an adult size hat, but I came up with 96 SC stitches, not 72. Not sure where I went wrong. If I do the math, there should be 4 stitches for each of the 24 V stitch. 24 x 4 = 96
Not sure where I went wrong. Any suggestions?

You would do 2 sc in between the v stitches. That’s 48. Then only one sc in between the spaces of the v stitches. That’s 24. 24+48=72

Hi, I made the adult beanie and mistakenly only did sets of 18 v stitches and then corrected to 24 on the very last row, turns out I love how it fits, guess mistakes can work out for the best sometimes!

Thank you for the pattern. I am making these for Christmas gifts. I too crochet loosely so for child size I have to go a size smaller in hook. Is there a cowl or scarf pattern you would recommend to go with this hat?

Hi all. So I made his today. Had to add on two extra rows for length (I think I stitch tight). Then thought it felt very loose. I am not sure how to adjust to make it tighter.

I have several looking at this pattern and no one seems to know how the band is made it says r3;72 repeat row 2 I got such a long band with 72 rows it wouldn’t fit no one…tell me what that means R3-72:Rep R2….please explain this Reply please…will even pay

Hi. I’m making these hats and I started off with a size H boyes crochet hook. Then for Christmas my hubby got me a set of tulip hooks and after making 2 with that H it’s much larger. I’m getting 3 stitches per inch on the tulip hooks and 3.5 on the boyes. Can you help. I’m not seeing what gauge should be. The boyes makes it a snug fit, the tulip fits my husbands head and is large. It comes to over our glasses.
Thanks
Teri
Oh I’m using red heart with love yarn too. I have 5 orders and I want to make sure they’re done to right fit.

I made these up, very cute and quick. If you do try to make these, they were too small for us. We may just have big noggins though lol! I had to use a J hook and add an additional row for both sizes. Even doing that the child size fits my 1 year old perfectly.

i wish i had known printing this pattern would use up 15 pieces of paper!!! what a waste! i certainly didn’t need EIGHT PAGES of pictures!
it would be nice if you had something like a “printer-friendly version” that would only include the pattern instructions.

Try print preview next time. I dont know how many times I got a gazillion pages of comments before I realized I should always use this option.

Cathryn – You should be able to select the number of pages you want to print. Scroll through the entire pattern and note the page numbers at the bottom of each page, then choose the page numbers you want. For this pattern, I chose pages 2-6.

Hope this helps.

Need help finishing I’m new to this and I’ve finished the cluster v stitch now how do I do the sc thanks Melissa

Is there any way you could show pattern starting from the bottom of hat so that we could have a more accurate size of hat for our desired person? Beautiful hats. Can’t wait to make these

Great hat, easy to read pattern, worked up quick, off to make matching gloves using the same v stich.:) Thank You for the pattern!

Thank you so much for this pattern! It is perfect! I used less than a skein of multi-colored earth-toned yarn (think fall leaves) in a worsted weight and a size g hook. I couldn’t be happier.

I’m not sure if I made my stitches too tight, but I made the child size and it doesn’t fit my daughter, it’s way to tight and small.

Thanks for the great pattern! Almost finished in Bernat natural and Red Heart with Love Boysenberry… easy to follow instructions. Instead of chaining, I used two pony tail holders and did 24 sc then began the pattern. Using two makes sense for strength and if one breaks.. will post in Facebook when done. Happy Hooking and New Year!

I made this last night. Didn’t do it in an hour, but finished it in 1 evening. ( I guess I’m not as speedy as you!) It’s super cute. Wanted to post a pic, but don’t know how to get it on here. Thanks for the pattern, I will be making more, for sure!

Just made three of these hats. Followed the video tutorial the first couple of times now I have it down and can whiz through them. Thanks for the pattern.

It says to alternate colors to end with color 1 on round 9, but 7 is color 2, so how could I do that? Or did you mean to end with color 2 on round 10?

Love this hat! Am making one right now for someone. I have short hair so could you tell me how to make this hat without the hole???? That would be great for those of us with no bun ….. and everyone could have one

First time I followed correctly..I don’t know how to read patterns.
You ran out of film, now I am stuck on round 11 through 16.
Can you post me a short video ? I don’t understand ..I know sc mean single crochet ?

First time I am able to follow someone.. mommydaughter messy hat.
You left us hanging when you ran out of tape.. :-/
I don’t read or understand crocheting patterns at all..
Can you post for us a short brief video on round 11 & 12 pleeeeeese.???

Great pattern. I made it in hit pink and black. I used a I size hook and did a few extra rows of the v stitches for a little longer hat.

I am a little confused. I can’t figure out the increases. For some reason the video is blurry so it is hard to see. Can you please help? Thanks.

I’ve made 2!

I was concerned about seaming (virtually invisible) and carrying the yarn was easier than I thought:)

Thanks again for this fun pattern. Have a great New Year :)

I loved making this hat! It stitched up really quickly, but looks like it was a lot of work. It is hands down my new favorite messy bun hat pattern. Thanks so much for sharing it.

Love this pattern. I made one small change, and it worked out really well. Instead of chaining 20 at the begining, i did 24 sc around a hair elastic. Now the ponytail hole is nice and stretchy and still looks nice and finished off

Happy 2017….Thank you so much for this tutorial and many others,I really like it and appreciate the fact that you are taking your time to always sharing what you know how to do (speaking about crafts) ,(crochet,cooking and sharing),means a lot for me,do not apologize for not having all the tools for a” better” video or tutorial,we have to be grateful….(look my spelling, is not perfect as my original language is Spanish) but I do my best to communicate.You are great , a great crocheter and a great person,not because I personally know you but just for the fact that I have been crocheting with you for a long time,I have some of your pattern made and shared them either in facebook or my blog.I just want to say Thank you for all you do and share.God bless you with many,many beautiful things in your life.

If I wanted to size this up a little how many sc’s should I start with? I have a customer that said hers was a little tight. Should I just go up a hook size?

I just made the child size following the pattern exactly as written. The finished hat measures approx 14″ circumference and 5 1/2″ from top to rim. What size child would that fit? An approximate child’s age? Thank you.

Hi there, I’m trying to make this hat for my 6.5 year old daughter…..the child size is turning out way too small for her. Is there any increase instructions for a hat between the child and adult size? I am so not good at figuring it out on my own …thanks in advance :)

Sarah, So glad I found your blog on how to make the Messy Bun/Ponytail hat. I searched for some time for a pattern that I really liked. I ended up with making my first hat using your pattern. Your instructions are easy to follow, and the video was very helpful. I’m ready to make my second hat. I like the pattern because it is one that you can use two different colors – very pretty!

I am having problems starting this pattern with making circle without it rolling after I single crochet around the chain. I thought maybe that I should crochet a foundation single crochet because this part is very difficult and I cannot make a nice beginning circle.

I’ve tried other messy bun patterns and i must say this is the cutest hat I’ve found! The pattern is easy to follow and my daughter loves it! I’ve had requests from her friends for a hat. Thank you so much for posting this!

Absolutely love this pattern and have made one for my SIL and would like to try making on for my brother (without the bun hole) but not sure where to start. Anyone have suggestions?

Thank you so much for this wonderful pattern. I made one for my daughter in law today using Yarn Bee brand soft Secret yarn I found at Hobby Lobby. I used the H size hook as you suggested. I found that I had to add two extra rows of cluster “V” stitches which I would attribute to the weight of the yarn. My grandmother taught me to crochet beginning at the age of 5 and I have been crocheting for 52 years now. I can read patterns and found your instructions spot on, I had no trouble what so ever. And your video was very good also I thought. I really want to thank you so much for offering this pattern for free. I was brought up in an era where patterns were shared freely among everyone that loved to crochet, and it’s nice to see others such as yourself still willing to do so instead of trying to make a profit off of everyone. We picked your pattern after looking at many. We both think yours is just beautiful. I will look forward to seeing any other patterns you might post in the future, as yours is both beautiful and your instructions were so accurate and thorough. Thank You!

I made one for my 5 year old today and love it! I would love to make one for my 2 year old but she has no hair. How can I make the v stitch in a regular hat? No messy bun? I tried revising myself but it didn’t work out at alllllll haha thanks!

I love your work! I’m building the courage to start doing tutorials on YouTube!! ‘Been crocheting for 38 years!! I have tons of creativity in me… was blessed go learn from my Grammy at age 8… old school style.. no pattern. Anyway! You inspire me. Thanks a bunch.

Hey!!! I love your messie bun hat. I’m trying to follow your video and well… sadly I’m stuck at the single crochet. I don’t understand how to put 24 sc in the chain of only 20. Lol. I am kind da new to crochet so what am I missing ?? Thanks in advance! !! Susy

On your mommy & me messy bun hat V stitch cluster pattern it looks like there is a rubber band in your initial 20sc stitches, I really love your pattern but I usually put a rubber band in my stitches for the ponytail to come thru. Would it be okay to do this in your pattern? And I usually start with 30 SC on the rubberband will the rubber band throw the stitches off in your pattern?

I love your mommy and me messy buns. I was wanting to know the measurement for the child’s hat. Would it fit a 10 year old or is it a toddler hat size?
Thank you

Since I’m not new self taught beginner is there any way to post a tutorial on the child’s hat?
I still am having a hard time reading the pattern…thanks

Great hat and easy pattern! I love the v-stitch, but it definitely has A LOT of stretch. I made the adult size for my college girl, but it was way too big. I ended up continuing with the 18 clusters for the entire hat and it’s a great fit. I also began the hat crocheting around a ponytail holder, which made the whole a bit snugger.
Thank you for you amazing patterns- it’s very generous of you to share your talent with others!

I wanted to make a hat today. I went back through my saves and saw this one. I tried the first few rounds and I”m hooked! Easy pattern to follow. Great job!

Hi! I love this pattern! I have made two of them so far. My 15 year old niece loves to wear her hair in buns. But my younger niece doesn’t have hair long enough for a bun. How can I make this hat with the V-stitch pattern without the hole for the bun? I am not a very experienced crocheter so I haven’t been able to figure out how to “close” the hole so to speak. I would appreciate any help that you could give. Thank you!

This pattern is so adorable & super easy! Thank you much for sharing it!

Would it be acceptable if I make these and sell them to fundraise for my dad? He is in renal failure and needs a kidney transplant so my siblings and I have set up a GoFundMe page and we’ve been trying to fundraise. I would of course credit & link to you.

I’m having trouble figuring out that 4th row with the additions. I can’t figure out how to get to the 18 needed for this row.. I watched the video but for some reason it’s still not clear.. please help

I want to make a hat for a 12 year old. I think the child hat would be too small but the adult hat too big. How would I make a teen hat? Change pattern or maybe smaller hook for adult pattern?

Just finished the one for my daughter after adding more rows. She is 8 in a few weeks. I ended up with 9 of the v-stitch rows instead of 4. Row #4 was the most challenging in the pattern but after ripping out a few times I got it right. Thanks for the pattern. These are so cute!

Hey there, would you mind sharing the width and length of the child hat you made. I made both sizes and they both came out to 7″ in length. I am not too sure if this is too long for a child.

Great video and details. There been times I had to play your video over because you went too fast. Plus it was hard to see if you was going through the ch 1 space or in between space. I thought u say don’t chain between the two cluster.

This is fab! I have had a go at the child’s hat following your instructions. I am making a hat for a 7 year old and am worried it looks small. Do you think this pattern will fit a 7 year old? Many thanks! Tori x

Love the pattern and tutorial. One suggestion, if you can show close-up on slip stitch joining and color change stitches

I love making your patterns. I am not profession at it, and I just learned to knit. I enjoy making these hats for the children on my bus runs. I have made the older ones ear warmers and scarfs. They really like things I make them. Thanks for your beautiful patterns. Maybe some day I will come up with some of my own as well.

Sincerely,
Lin
