You know what you’re going to love the most about this design? Esther Thompson of Cute as a Button Crochet has made it with Caron Simply Soft. I know many of you can get started on this project right away because Simply Soft is so readily available. You probably have some in your stash right now!
This design is so similar to the knit design that’s floating around Facebook and Pinterest. I’m sure you’re seen it. People have been looking for a crochet duplicate. It’s a manufactured messy bun beanie, knit in China. You can purchase a finished hat at Three Bird Nest.
What people are wanting is a crochet version. If you modify Esther’s hat slightly, by omitting some at the top and omit closing, you can finish off as a messy bun by making the last stitches directly onto a stretchy hair band and you’ll have a beautiful copycat design.

Many of you have written to me to ask how you can help support CrochetKim. A Patreon account was suggested but I thought it would be better to provide ad-free PDFs of my patterns so you would get something in return. I'm steadily working on adding PDFs to all my patterns and I've also made this compilation available at a discounted price. Thank you to all of you for your overwhelming support and kindness these many years. Enjoy!
