Messy Bun Beanie Free Pattern Workshop

messy bun beanie tutorial free pattern

It’s crazy how many people have asked me for a messy bun beanie tutorial in the last month.

I’ve whipped one up and it’s all ready to go. Using bulky weight yarn, this beanie took me under 2 hours from start to finish.

Any level of crocheter can work this beanie up in an evening.

Download the pattern and watch the free video tutorial here.

3 Perfect Gifts For the Crocheter In Your Life

#ad link
There are still 10 days left to shop for Christmas. If your loved one is crocheter, here are the perfect gifts that are always useful no matter how many the crocheter already has.

  1. Crochet Hooks



Furls Crochet Hooks ~ Retail $49 each

These Furls candy colored crochet hooks will be your crocheter’s new favorite hook. Plus, they are a perfect gift to keep giving. One hook for each special occasion (if the sticker shock of buying them all at once scares you). Whoever said diamonds are a woman’s best friend, also said these hooks are her second best.


Clover Amour Soft Touch Hook Set ~ Retail $45+ for the whole set

Not quite as shiny as the Furls, but these are my go to favorite hooks of all time.

You can never have too many hooks, and these are the best quality for the money. Plus you can get the whole set for the same price as one of the Furls.

2. Yarn Bowl


Stitch Happy Handmade Extra Large Wooden Yarn Bowl ~ Retail $49

This yarn bowl could actually be in the “save” section as well depending on how much you want to spend. Etsy alone has over 4,000 currently listed, with it’s most expensive at over $400.

Yarn bowls have made a huge explosion over the past year and it’s a good chance your crocheter might not even have one yet. But, if they do, don’t worry, they will always be able to use more.


Yarn Bowl by Yarn Valet ~ Retail $12.99

This bowl is a great deal and was just mentioned by Good Housekeeping  as a must have for knitters and crocheters.

With is tiny price tag, it’s a great choice for those on a budget.

3. Project Bag



Slipped Stitches Studio Plus Tote and Tot ~ Retail $135

Your crocheter can always use another project bag, so this is a no brainer.

The project bags from Slipped Stitches have every pop reference imaginable (I’m partial to Labyrinth- pictured here). This is their largest tote, but they have many other sizes (and price points) available.


Art Bin Yarn Drum ~ Retail $21.99

What this lacks in style, it makes up for in utility. This thing is a workhorse, holding up to 8 skeins of yarn. If your crocheter loves making blankets, this is the tote for them.

A Little Preview…

I’m very excited for my newest (knit) pattern. It will be ready in a couple of days, but that didn’t stop the good folks of Craftsy to post it to the home page:


Who doesn’t like snowflakes?


It’s so humbling to have my pattern on the front page of Craftsy.

It will be available as a single pattern (with the generous 50% discount I always have with my new patterns) as well as a Craftsy kit (all the yarn needed and pattern included) using the new and yummy Sprightly Acrylic Worsted Yarn by Craftsy.

It should be up within the next few days, so if you are subscribed to my blog, I will let you know when it available. If you aren’t subscribed, you can do so below.

Enter your email address to follow this blog and receive notifications of new posts by email.

P.S. The crochet version is getting a pattern update to the new improved formatting and will be introduced on the same day (with a discount too of course).
