Crochet Waves Messy Bun Ponytail Hat
I hooked up this Crochet Waves Messy Bun Ponytail Hat using my most newest pattern for my Crochet Unforgettable Messy Bun Ponytail Hat.I was out shopping today and saw this Red Heart Unforgettable Waves in the colour Bazar. It looks just like Red Heart Unforgettable only with much thicker chunks in it and all I could think of is how much I wanted to try this yarn with my messy bun hat pattern.
Both Red Heart Unforgettable and Unforgettable Waves are listed as a #4 yarn but these yarns are so different that they do not work up the same at all so I had to make adjustments to the messy bun pattern to work with this yarn. When I was finished it worked better with the brim folded up.
