Pros of Short Hair Buns
On step 11 is it suppose to be skip 2 dc, dcfp in next 2 st, working behind previous dcfp, dcfp in 2 skipped st instead of dcfp around next four dcfp? Thank you for such a beautiful pattern! It works up really quick and the birthday girl I made it for absolutely loved it! Thank you for sharing this pattern and especially for the tutorial. I conquered the cable, finally! I made this in purple and it turned out beautiful.
Thank you for sharing your pattern. I did have to alter it some because it was too wide and too tall, but was pretty easy fix. I never done a cable stitch before this and I am thankful you had a video to explain it.
Is there another tutorial on this stitch somewhere? I found this video that uses larger yarn so it might be a little clearer on the camera for you: She does a good job of showing how you go BEHIND the cables when you are doing the crossing though, so I hope it helps you get over this hurdle!
Hi Charmaine — I tried to follow the additional link, but it takes me to a series of Bud Light Commercials and not just a youtube ad before the stitch video. Any chance you can give the title so I can search for it that way? Here is the direct link https: Wish you could make a clearer video with a better explanation. My project just went in the trash after 6 hours of work. I had to do the same thing, Nicole. I ended up saving the band I made because the band was great, but I moved on to another cabled messy bun hat with a pattern that was MUCH more clear in hopes that it would help me figure this one out.
Good to know that when I come back to this pattern I can try it that way! I The cable part the way she said up to row 2. In the video she provided she said on row3 not to work the stitches as you came to them but to skip the first two FPDC then work the next two then go back back and work the two FPDC you skipped from behind.
On row 3 and four i simply worked the stiches as they came and the cable came out beautiful and it was a lot easier. I followed the pattern exactly as she had it, but row 3 and 4 I crocheted the stitches as i came to them.
It was the first time i ever done it. It took me an entire day and frogging it about 4x to get the cable part down. I hope you got your too. Did you see the video? It seems really big and my head is definitely not that big!
I only did 56 rows. So 56 should work perfectly! So leaving out eight stitches would take out a straight and cable section? Yes it would take out a straight and cable section. Our tensions must be very different! Cabled Messy Bun Bow Hat. Thank you for sharing this pattern with us. It is the perfect bun hat. How can i make this a regular hat without the hole for a bun? I have not worked out the stitch counts to make it a complete hat at this time, but I will try in the near future! Cables are a bit tricky to master.
Good luck with the cables! I have already made it in different colors and sizes. The directions are very easy to follow. Thank you for the pattern! I was wondering if you had the pattern for one size down?! I keep meaning to add this to the post; add or subtract in multiples of 8 to adjust the size of the band, and you may need to adjust height number of rows in the body of the hat according to how you want it. Should I flip the band to where the seam is on the inside before starting on the body of the hat?
Yes, I did flip it to the inside, it stretches out a bit when you wear it so you can barely see it, but I flip it anyways. I made this as per the pattern gauge and everything was correct and I found it to be way too small. I had to add 8 rows to the band and and additional 6 to the hat, otherwise it came out beautifully. Glad you were able to adapt it to make it fit properly! Wanted to leave some feedback.
First off it is a wonderful pattern, love it. Only advice I have has to do with your cable stitch tutorial video. It is so hard to see what you are doing with such a dark colored yarn. Close up shots of a lighter colored yarn would have been awesome. It still definitely helped and I figured out how to do it. Thank you for a wonderful, free pattern. Hi, first off — thank you for the free pattern. It is a lovely hat.
The video did really help me to make sure I was doing it right. I did find row 11 a bit confusing. It is a decrease row. Next time I think I will either use a smaller hook or a smaller brim as I do agree it kind of works out to be a bit loose.
Other than that I love it! I just started crocheting in January. So i learned a few things haha but it turns out so beautifully. Thanks for the video instructions because those helped me through the harder parts. I love this pattern. I have not had the chance to make it a complete hat pattern yet. I will add that to my suggestion box of future patterns!
