Free Knitting Pattern: Color Block Messy Bun Ponytail Winter Beanie Winter Hat

Seasons Greetings! As we move through the 2021 holiday season, I'm moving through each of my free patterns to create a free messy bun version that you can whip together easily then repeat for friends and family as you wish. Enjoy!

Seasons Greetings 2021 ~ I’m working through each of my most popular hats and creating a new version of each as a messy bun ponytail hat.

Yarn: Super Bulky Size 6 – personally, I love Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick and Quick.

Colors: Cranberry and Fisherman (cream)

Needles: 10mm, 16″ circular – personally, I love my bamboo Clover Takumi knitting needles

The Pattern: Color Block Messy Bun Beanie

  • Long tail cast-on: 48 sts
  • Rows 1-8 Ribbing: K1, P1 around (48 sts)
  • Rows 9-12 Body: K1 around (48 sts)

CHANGE TO SECOND COLOR

  • Row 13-21: K1 around (48 sts)
  • Row 22: K1, K1, K2tog, repeat around (this reduces your total to 36 sts)
  • Row 23: K1, K1, K2tog, repeat around (this reduces your total to 27 sts)
  • Row 24: K1, K1, K2tog, repeat around (this reduces your total to 20 sts)

Finish: Cast off and weave in all ends.

Be Creative and Enjoy! 💕

Same pattern, just do 8 rows of ribbing then start changing colors every two rows
