Avalanche Messy Bun Beanie - Crocheted Ponytail Hat - Messy Bun Hat - Ponytail Hat - Crochet Garden Design Made To Order: Many colors

by CrochetGarden

♥◦◦◦ DESCRIPTION
Winter calls and the temperatures fall. You will meet them head on with poise and determination in this avalanche messy bun beanie. Tread the virgin snow and let your own path lead you afar.

This messy bun beanie, as with all of the beanies here, is my own creation, and is a full coverage beanie. The body of the hat, slopes of textured tundra cables cascading down to the detailed brim. The brim is a clever array of mini-raised stitches designed for two reason. First, functionality- a slight stretch with tension that matches the body of the hat. Second, for aesthetics- the mini raised stitches in the brim complement without over powering the grand cables in the body.

The crown of the hat has clever shaping, molding to your head's curve, to an 2-inch opening with elastic at the top so you can stretch it open and pull your hair through. This shaping does a few things, it alleviates any "frump" or bulges in the stitching that can often happen- resulting in a comfortable-wearing hat and one that has smooth even stitching. It also allows the opening to be smaller with more head coverage, instead of leaving you with a wide opening at the top which can feel cold.

You can choose to have your hat closed with no hole, or open for a messy bun or ponytail. You can also have a bow. The bow will be the same as the Summer Solstice Bow: https://www.etsy.com/listing/578869212/summer-solstice-messy-bun-beanie?ref=shop_home_feat_4

I will be taking great care in making your hat. The wonderful lady (grandmama) who taught me to crochet as a child, also instilled a great work ethic in me. When she taught me to crochet, if there was even one error, I had to rip it out, even if the error was all the way back on the very first stitch. It was hard love, but as a master craftster and seamstress, she wanted to build me up with a great foundation. Ladies of that time took great pride in their workmanship, as do I. This is the care I will be taking with your hat. I want you to know that it was professionally made by someone who truly cares what you think. If my grandmother were to pass you by and ask to see your hat, I know she would inspect it and hand it back with an affirmative nod saying, "this is good work."

♥◦◦◦HAT SIZE
How To Order The Perfect Size Hat
If you do not have the recipient's head circumference, order by the age. For example, if your child is 7, order the 6-7yr.

If you do have the recipient's actual head circumference: Order by the head circumference size (not the age), but also include their age in the notes. For example, if your child is 10 years old but has a 22" head, order the 13+ and make a note saying this is for a 10 year old. This is important because not only is the circumference of the head important, but so is the length of the hat! Many variables go into making a well tailored hat for your recipient :)

SIZING CHART
HAT SIZE || HEAD CIRCUMFERENCE TO FIT || AVERAGE AGE ||
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
13+ y || 21.5"-22.5" || Fits most 12 yr olds, teens and women. Please let me know if head circumference is larger.
8-11yr || 20.5"-21.5" || Fits most kids ages 8-11 yrs
6-7yr || 19.5"-20.5" || Fits most kids ages 5-7 yrs
4-5yr || 18.5"-19.5" || Fits most kids ages 3-4 yrs

Please note this is a full coverage beanie. The model in the photo is a teen with a 21.75" head circumference. If you prefer a shorter hat, or if you wear glasses some of the hat may come down too far for your liking. Just let me know in the notes, and I will make the hat a 1/2" to an inch shorter for you.

♥◦◦◦ BOWS
Bows are $4 when ordered with a hat. Otherwise, they are $6 each.

♥◦◦◦ COLORS
So many colors to choose from! Etsy has a limit on the number of colors I can add. If you see a color that is not in the drop-down selection, please select the "COLOR IN NOTES" option and then add it in the notes with your order :) Mostly, it is the colors on the second and third color swatch. The color on the model in this listing is "Rosy Cheeks," which is akin to a blush rose or a blush pink.

Note: Occasionally, manufacturers discontinue yarns with no notice. If this is the case, I will let you know as soon as I know so that you can choose another color. While I do my best to check periodically, sometimes things are out of my control. But I will do my best to make you happy and find that special color for you.

♥◦◦◦◦◦◦◦◦◦◦◦◦ ABOUT ME ◦◦◦◦◦◦◦◦◦◦◦◦♥
I started designing way back in 1999. Years later, I have won awards, had crochet books published, and had numerous designs published in crochet magazines. Vogue crochet even wrote an article on one of my lace shawl designs (each day i need a little lift, I just open up to that page:)). If you happen through a magazine aisle, a few of my latest designs you can see in the Fall 2017 issue of Interweave Crochet (see corner of Cover), and Winter 2018 issue of Interweave Crochet.

Usually I only design patterns. However, I miss being able to crochet for others, sharing my love and passion not just with patterns, but also finished pieces. And that is how you come to find me here now :)
