These are my attempts at the trending bun hat. It is pretty great for when you want to wear a hat becuase it is cold but hot don’t want to have to wear your hair down. I had a lady from church asked me to make a couple as Christmas presents. I have tried a few different styles. I started by making them from the the bottom up.
I tried making the band first. It took a little longer. I think it turned out cute too.
I also tried to make some from the top down. They were basically the same. My first one tip down ended up smaller. So Sweet Pea modeled.
And one with a bill:
There are so many different ways to make these hats.
I don’t often use patterns. I just looked at other hats and created a pattern in my head. Perhaps I will try to write it down, someday.
When I see hats anywhere I find myself wondering if it would work as a ponytail hat.
