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.

Mikey, aka Michael Sellick, of The Crochet Crowd, started this online journey back in 2008. A mere hobby in trying to reach out to others as he was mentally struggling with his own issues. His goal was simple, find others in the yarn communities, like him, that have a common interest.

The journey and main baby of the whole idea started with a YouTube Channel and then in 2011, an official website was developed. Michael is not only the face of The Crochet Crowd but also the working engine behind the crowd in self-taught programming, social media and so much more.

Enjoy the stitching journey. Life is short, enjoy this wonderful hobby and all of the learning opportunities that come with it.

    Thank you

  4. Judi says:

    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?

  5. Penny says:

    Can you tell me the kind of yan you used

    1. Susan says:

      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

    2. TIna says:

      Beautiful video and hat! Thank you Mikey!

  6. Susan McGee says:

    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

  7. Penny says:

    Was the yarn that you can use worsted weight yarn

    1. Mikey used a #5 bulky yarn. If you use worsted, you will have to make a few adjustments.

    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,
