This cute accessory can be worn either as a hat or a cowl. So I’m calling it a “Howl.” It’s my version of a “messy bun” or “ponytail hat”. I first knitted this years ago because I’ve had long hair for most of my life. And since the “messy bun” or “ponytail hat” has had a popularity revival lately, I thought I would share this as a free pattern on Ravelry. There have been many, many messy bun patterns on Ravelry in the past year, but probably none exactly like mine. This is a bottom-up-to-crown (hat) or top-down (cowl). Enjoy!
