Crochet Elastic Ponytail Holder Messy Bun Hat (All Sizes) with Video






I already made a Messy Bun Hat Pattern, but this one you will use a ponytail holder on top rather than starting the brim first.  I made this Ponytail Holder Messy Bun Hat for an Adult, but you can adjust the size by changing the hook. This list of sizes are down below. I created a video if you need more assistance. You will need a ponytail holder to create this messy bun hat. You start out with double crochet inside the ponytail holder and this is where your hair will come out of.

I don't understand how row 1 can be 2 DC in each st around when there's nothing saying how many sts are placed around the band. Or am I not seeing it on this page?

Crochet Jewel said...

sorry, that was typo, I corrected, it supposed to be ch 3, and then 21 dc in the ponytail holder, for a total of 22 dc

Thank you so much for sharing your pattern. I just finished making one. It made up quickly and nicely. I used red heart super yarn. Thanks again.

What brand and size of yarn do you use?

Panda_Life said...

Thank you for sharing! Approximately how many yards of yarn did you use for the adult pattern?

Crochet Jewel said...

I used about 1/2 skein of yarn, I dont know how many yards

Will make this for my big granddaughter as soon as i can get ponytail holders

I've made a few messy bun hats, but I really like this pattern. It is so much easier to start the hat with the pony tail holder and work down; no seaming of the band, and I love the front post, back post ribbing at the bottom. This is going to be my "go to" messy bun hat from now on. Thanks for all the tips to make the hat smaller for different age groups! Thanks so much, Amy!!!

I really like this pattern, I have made the messy bun hats using both your patterns, this one seemed easier to me. I like the front/back post brim as well. Thanks for all your hard work and sharing it is really appreciated.

I love this pattern. I have had several friends ask for a messy bun hat and I am so glad I found your pattern. I have made 4 of them so far. They work up fast and are a joy to crochet.

Glad you like it!

You did not say to join in the first round but I have this big hole. Should i not slipstitch at the end of the first round to the first chain 3?

lisa yates said...

Shouldn't I join at the end of round 1?

Crochet Jewel said...

yes I would join on top of the ch 3

Melissa Wolfe said...

I love this patten. It is by far the easiest and fastest messy bun hat to make. Thanks
