I’ve had quite a few people ask me if I believe the messy bun hat will be popular again this season, and while I don’t think it will match the absolute CRAZY levels of viral-ness it did last year, I do think that the messy bun hat is here to stay. Why? Because it’s more than just a style trend. It’s also super practical! The concept has been around for a long time, but now that a lot more people know about it, I think it will probably become a regular part of the winter accessory lineup.

So, my first messy bun hat pattern is here! If you’ve already made a Malia Beanie or Malia Slouch, this will be super simple for you. If you haven’t, I recommend you watch the video tutorial for those hats to get you started. The tutorial shows you step by step how to make the beanie (adult large size) but all we’re doing to convert it to a messy bun beanie is skipping straight to Round 3 and working it around a hair elastic. Everything else is the same!
