It’s officially beanie season here and I love it! I just love a nice chunky, crochet hat in a neutral color that can match anything I’m wearing!
I also love quick and easy crochet hats and this one is just that! It took me just one sitting to complete this chunky crochet hat – it’s really that quick – just the brim and 9 rows after that!
PLUS there is even a messy bun version if you like those! Find the messy bun version here – if you purchase the PDF, both versions are included!
The messy bun version is actually one of my first patterns on my blog. I’ve been meaning to get new photos of it on the blog, but when I made a new sample I decided I wanted to close it up and put a pom pom on it! Because although I do wear messy buns a lot, I always like a closed hat option as well.
I actually ended up making a handful of samples with different yarns to see what I liked best. My original messy bun hat was made with Bernat Chunky, which holds up well but isn’t the softest in my opinion.
This time around I used Loops and Threads Charisma, Loops and Threads Kaleidoscope, I Love This Chunky! (pictured), and Lion Brand Wool Ease Quick and Thick.
