When it comes to knitting hats this winter the messy bun hat is one of our all time favorites for women (and man bun's). One of the most elegant and stylish looking knitting patterns is the messy bun hat by Annie's (affiliate links are included in this post). The Annie's Autumn Dust Messy Bun hat includes a pattern for the matching cowl which we love the idea of matching your hat and scarf together on a cool winter's day!
The Messy Bun Hat lets you wear your hat in a bun or a ponytail while keeping your ears warm. The set uses a romantic star stitch texture and the cowl allows you to wrap around your neck twice when the cold wind kicks in.
Knit with 1 ball for the hat and 2 balls for the cowl of #4 worsted-weight Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable using U.S. size 8/5mm 16" and 32" circular and double-point needles. Two balls is enough to make the whole set in any size.
The Messy Bun Hat and Cowl can be ordered as a download, printed pattern or project kit.
