Pattern Review: Snowy Owl Ponytail Beanie
*This pattern requires worsted weight yarn and a fluffy white yarn for the trim.
This is one of my favorite messy bun/ponytail hats available. If you are like me, the idea of crocheting cabled owls might make you want to drop your crochet hooks and run. However, this is one of the simplest crochet cables pattern I've worked.
The instructions were very clear and easy to follow. The pattern has also been tested by myself and a few others to insure there are no errors. The fluffy white trim adds a nice winter snow texture to the beanie.
I highly recommend this pattern.
Bonus Tip: I went up a hook size and replaced the fuzzy trim with rows of single crochets. By increasing the number of rows and hook size, the hat fit me perfectly!

Pattern for a Ponytail / Messy Bun Beanie
While I am still working on my next free crochet pattern, I thought I would share a trendy new pattern designed by one of my friends, Ashley Kneram. Ashley always amazes me with her talents. Not only is she an excellent crocheter, she can sew and come up with the most creative crafts.
The pattern uses worsted weight yarn and a ponytail holder. It works up in an hour tops and you can change the colors to make it your own.
Plus, these beanies are a God send for those of us who need to run to the store for something but don't want to have to shower or do our hair before leaving the house. Just toss on this beanie and go!
