Crochet Teen / Adult Bun Hat

Crochet a Bun Hat that intentionally leaves space at the top of the hat to put up hair. You bring your hair through space. This particular pattern is an alteration on an existing pattern on Yarnspirations called the Snug with Clusters Crochet Hat.

The pattern has been written in three sizes. I have altered each size to start correctly for a bun feature at the top of that.

Using the same hook size, 6.5 mm or K. Using either Patons Classic Wool Roving or Bernat Roving Yarn. You will need only 1 ball of each colour. If you want a solid colour hat, you only need 1 ball.

  1. Love this hat, so easy and cute!
    I used Patons Shetland Chunky Tweeds in rich teal tweed.
    It looks great, I’m going to make more!
    Thank you

  2. How can you get a hat that fits from a 2 year-old to an adult by never increasing more for the adult size hat than for the 2 year-old hat? It seems like it would just be taller, but not wider–right?

    • it was a soft, not itchy – like Caron, but got it at Hobby Lobby – don’t have the paper – but two strands worked well and made a pretty hat – tried to send picture, but haven’t figured out how to do that

  3. it’s a thicker yarn, I used two strands of lighter weight and it went pretty well, the smaller yarn will require more stitches and increases, but it will work with those modifications, just try on as you go

  4. I really have enjoyed getting your emails and have learned so much from you. Thank you for doing all of this. Hopefully I can get to a point where I can make a sweater.
    Thanks again,
    Dorothy Roman
