One of my favorite hats to make is my Jellybean Slouch hat, so I decided to make a messy bun /ponytail version. I hope you will enjoy making these.
My daughter in law loves the hat! She looks so cute in it.

Yarn: Worsted weight yarn
Sample: Red Heart Soft Icy Pond and Off White
Crochet Hooks: I
Miscellaneous: yarn needle
Gauge: 4″ = 13 hdc and 9 rounds
Note: Please look over ENTIRE pattern before beginning. Extra photos are at end of pattern.Tips for both sizes:
- Depending on how you crochet, it may appear the texture will be on the inside of the hat. Before ribbed band is added the hat will be turned right side out if needed.
- The texture of this hat is created by alternating trc and sc stitches. Because there are an odd number of sts when texture is started, the repeating pattern will be staggered.
- Hat is worked from top to bottom, with an opening at the top for a ponytail or bun. For a regular top beanie, try the Jellybean Slouch.
Directions for teen/adult size hat
