The beehive beanie…textured awesomeness in one unisex ribbed hat. You all loved the messy hat version of this hat and have been clamoring for a full-sized beanie so I thought, well, there’s no time like the present to release another pattern!
And, honestly, I should be working on my taxes right now but sharing a new pattern with you is so much more fun. 🙂

WOMEN’S MEDIUM CHELSEA MESSY BUN HAT IN A SOLID COLOR
SIZING AND YARDAGE
For this pattern, which fits a women’s medium (22″ circumference), you’ll need 75 yards of super bulky yarn. I used Lion Brand Hometown USA in Chicago Charcoal.
- 9.00 mm (US size M/N ) Crochet Hook
- Sewing Scissors
- Tapestry Needle
- Buttons or embellishment of your choice
With 9.00 mm hook and super bulky yarn
To Make the Band at the Bottom of the Hat
Row 1: (working in back loop only,) SC in 2nd ch from hook, SC in each ch across, CH1, turn. 5 sts
Row 2: (working in back loop only) SC in each st across, CH1, turn. 5 sts Repeat for a total of 36 rows
Do not fasten off.
With right sides together and crochet hook on the right-hand side of the piece, SLST the last row of SCs (through the back loop) to the beginning row of chain sts, matching the stitches across. This will create a circular band.
Turn the cuff right-side out so that the seam is on the inside.
CH1 and continue the rest of the pattern working across the top of the ribbing. You’ll be working in rounds now.
RND 1: SC into the end stitch of each SC row of the band. Join with SLST to first SC. 36 sts
RND 2: CH1, HDC into the same stitch as beginning CH1, HDC in each stitch around. Join with SLST to beginning HDC. 36 sts
RND 3: (working in the back bar – aka third loop) CH1, HDC in each stitch around. Join with a SLST to beginning HDC. 36 sts.
RND 4: Repeat Rnd 2
RND 5: Repeat Rnd 3
RND 6: Repeat Rnd 2
Rnd 7: Repeat Rnd 3
Rnd 8: (decrease) CH1, HDC in the same stitch as beginning ch1, HDC in the next st, work a HDC2TOG decrease across the next 2 sts, *HDC, HDC, HDC2TOG,* repeat from * to * around. For ages 7-14, Adult S and L, HDC in each of the next 2 sts. Join with a SLST to beginning HDC. 27 sts.
Rnd 9: (decrease, working in the back bar) CH1, HDC in the same stitch as beginning ch1, HDC in the next st, work a HDC2TOG decrease across the next 2 sts, *HDC, HDC, HDC2TOG,* repeat from * to * around. Work a HDC in the remaining 3 stitches. 21 sts.
Rnd 10: (decrease) CH1, HDC in the same stitch as beginning ch1, HDC2TOG decrease across the next 2 sts, *HDC, HDC2TOG,* repeat from * to * around. Work a HDC in any remaining stitches after working the decrease pattern. 14 sts
Rnd 11: (decrease, working in the back bar) CH1, HDC2TOG starting in the same stitch as beginning ch1, *HDC2TOG across the next 2 sts,* repeat from * to * around. Work a HDC in any remaining stitches after working the decrease pattern around the hat. 7 sts

Using a tapestry needle, sew the top closed (I do this through the front loops only).

May I ask where you got the tag (Label) you have on this hat? I’ve been looking for a place I could purchase some. Thanks
Pam Grice says
Hi Angela, For sure! I got my tags from All This Wood on Etsy. You can find their shop through my affiliate link, here: http://tidd.ly/fbd929d8
Hope you find just what you’re looking for. They’ve done great work for me with a super fast turnaround!
Yasmin bright says
Love love love creating this hat. Simple and quick is my favorite kind of project. Looking forward to purchasing so I can do the color change. Will post pics later in the group. Thanks for this amazing pattern
Pam Grice says
Thank you, Yasmin! I’m so happy that you’re enjoying this pattern. I can’t wait to see photos!!
What do you mean by the back bar / Aka third loop
Pam Grice says
When you’re working through the loops of a HDC, you’ll see the front and back loops of the stitches that you would typically work through. However, instead of working in one of those loops, you’ll go to the back of the HDC to find one more horizontal stitch at the back of the HDC. You’ll work your stitches in that loop, thereby pushing the front and back loop forward to make the ribbed area on the hat.
I hope this helps. If you still need more information, there are videos on youtube that can assist, simply search the phrase “crochet in the third loop).
I love this pattern. Thank you so much. I’m finding I have to add rows for an adult hat, but it makes the cutest child hat.
Hi Pam. Thank you for this pattern. I am not understanding how to start a new row. When I chain one it leaves a large space and creates obvious holes In the area of ending and beginning of rows..
If you’re having trouble using a CH1 method, you might try simply moving on to the next round without chaining.
I hope that helps,
