How to Make Brave Primrose Messy Bun Hat Crochet Pattern
by Kristin Omdahl

As a woman who wears her hair long, I can totally appreciate the messy bun hat movement! This is a wonderful way to accessories a messy bun or ponytail hairstyle and looking super cute in a hat at the same time!

I like making them from the top down, working the first round of stitches around a pony tail holder. This has a ton of stretch, and holds its shape very nicely, too.

If you prefer a hat without the hole - that is a simple modification, too! Start with a circular medallion and increase to the number of stitches of the first round of a messy bun hat and continue as instructed.

 

What you will need:
120 yards worsted weight yarn
1 ball Be So Brave Yarn; 100% American Merino Wool, #4 medium, worsted weight yarn; 120 yards per 2 oz; shown in color American Beauty.
H/8 (5mm) crochet hook
Yarn needle
Scissors
Standard stretchy pony tail holder, approx. 2" diameter

Gauge: 4 st repeat = 1"

Finished size: 18" circumference x 10" tall

Instructions:

Rounds 5 - 11 : rep rounds 3 - 4 three times, then rep round 3 once more.

EDGING:

Thank you for choosing to knit and crochet Kristin Omdahl patterns!

I know that you have thousands of choices for buying yarn and body care products. I want you to know what makes MY products special, and feel good about shopping the Kristin Omdahl brand.

Kristin Omdahl products have a heart! That’s right, a portion of every sale supports the charity I established: Project Kristin Cares.

I am a survivor of domestic violence, a hugely hidden problem in our society. You, or someone you know, has been affected by it, or is still suffering now. Statistics show that 1 in 3 women, and 1 in 4 men have been victims of domestic violence during their lifetimes.

But because it is so rarely discussed, I always felt like I was alone. One of the worst parts for me was that feeling of loneliness and having a dirty secret that had to be hidden.

Through my charity, Project Kristin Cares, we can make a difference in the lives of people who have been affected by domestic violence. I want to share the message that victims are not at fault, not alone and should not be embarrassed to share their stories.

Kristin Omdahl products are beautiful, thoughtful and valuable. But even more importantly, every time you purchase a product from my company, a portion of the sale supports

Project Kristin Cares. Please help me knock out domestic violence, one sale at a time.

xoxo, Kristin
