If you have been collecting crochet patterns online recently, then you know that the obsession has been off the charts for messy bun beanie patterns! They are literally everywhere! Well, I decided to add one more to the mix with my own free pattern! (Of course!)
These kind of beanies are perfect for keeping you warm and your hair messy…? Well, as long as you have long enough hair to pull into a bun! 🙂
My version of the messy bun beanie takes only 1 hour to complete and lets face it, we need these kind of quick projects between work, life and after school activities!
I decided to use Cozy Wool in Pewter, which is a half acrylic half wool blend from Michaels because I love how soft it is!
And the color choices, like the Pewter I used are pretty amazing too!
You will love working with this yarn because it is so extremely bulky and works up fast!
If you don’t have this particular yarn on hand, you could substitute any super bulky yarn in its place and it would still work out great!
