Messy Bun Crochet Hat Questions Answered
First of all, let me give a big thank you to all those who have been coming to the blog for the messy bun hat patterns. It’s been so fun to see so many people enjoying these free crochet patterns and sharing the pictures with me! If you’ve made one, feel free to join the Daisy Cottage Designs Facebook group and share your work! We’d love to see any of your recent crochet projects!
If you haven’t seen the patterns yet, here they are!
That said, there have been some people asking for a video tutorial on how to start the Messy Bun Hats around the hair elastic and how the chain loop works. Please remember, I’m not a videographer!! I know literally nothing about editing video. But, I think this video will help you start your hat and get on the right track.
Also, I’ve had a few people asking about the size of the hat. This video addresses that issue, as well. So, if you want to hear me answer your questions and walk you through starting the hat, this video is for you!
Please note, I’m starting the adult messy bun hat in the video, but the important thing is that I’m showing you how to work around the chain and the hair elastic. You will have to adjust the numbers you work around these depending on which hat you’re making.
Don’t you just love where this video grabbed the cover photo?! Such a flattering picture of me.

I am wondering what size hook use are using in your messy bun hat ? It appears to look like a 0/6 in your video.
I used an I hook 🙂
I am following directions for the chaining and my hat is huge! I noticed on original pattern that there are fewer stitches- 24 not 33. Should this be a bigger hate?
If you’re making the pink hat with the bow, it is 24. 🙂 The video just meant to give general instructions for how to work into the chain loop and around the hair elastic.
Could you please let me know the total number of crochet stitches on the adult hat?
For some reason I can’t print your pattern and am trying to figure out how to do it without having to copy the whole thing by hand and I’m not totally clear on it.
This hat looks fairly easy but I’m a knitter so will have a struggle until I get it ‘down.’
I have instructions for printing patterns here.
In round 1 does the ch 2 count as a double crochet?
It doesn’t 🙂
Watching the instructions make so much more sense to me than reading them. Thanks

Hi, Amy. I actually used a gray and a true white. I think it’s the photos 🙂
