Learn how to make this adorable messy bun hat crochet pattern for kids! It's quick and easy, and will be sure to put a smile on any little girl's face!

After she saw my messy bun hat, my 6 year old wanted in on the  action. Not only that, but many people have asked for a smaller size for kids. So, here it is! If you haven’t seen it, check out the adult messy bun hat pattern before you go.

Worked in the round, this hat starts at the top just like a traditional hat. But, there’s a catch. You work into elastic hair bands in your first round. Rubber bands plural, you might ask? Yep! You want to put a few of the skinny hair elastics in there just in case one breaks. It’s not stretching much, though, because the hole is a pretty good size.

Messy Bun Hat Crochet Pattern Notes:

  • This pattern is worked through both loops.
  • Do NOT work into the ch 2 when you’re finishing each round. You’re going to work an extra stitch at the beginning of each round so you can sl st directly into the first REAL double crochet. This helps hide your seam.
  • Use your favorite way to create stripes. When I’m doing it, I don’t cut my yarn between each row. I just keep it attached and pick it up when I slip stitch at the end of each row.
  • Find a video tutorial of how to begin this hat here.
