Trellis Ponytail / Messy Bun Hat
** This pattern has been revised to correct errors and make it easier to follow. Updated pattern will appear in pattern library of prior purchasers and all future purchasers.
This fun hat knits up quickly.
The pattern uses slipped stitches to form the trellis pattern, which I’ve always thought is a sneaky way to look fancy without actually being complicated to knit. Mostly it’s knit and purl.
The button band allows you to wear your ponytail high, low, or in between - just undo the button that corresponds to the position of your ponytail. Also works for a messy bun by undoing two buttons instead of one.
Instructions are written out row by row; you don’t need to be able to read a chart to knit this hat. Seamless design means no sewing parts together and no picking up stitches.
You might start making this as a gift, but you will want to keep it for yourself!
