More Messy Bun Hats

I made these three messy bun hats using the same yarn (Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick Tweeds) and pattern (Messy Bun Hat II by Isela Phelps) which I modified slightly — one for my brother’s girl, one for a cousin, and one for a friend.

Pattern with my variations:

Used needles US size 10 and 11.  Cast on 56 stitches using the smaller needles.  Join to knit in round, careful not to twist.  K1,P1 for 8 rounds.  Switch to larger needles.  *Purl 5 rounds.  Knit 4 rounds.* X two.  Begin decreases with next round.  P5, p2tog, repeat around.  Purl all. P4,p2tog; repeat around.  Purl all.  K3, k2tog, repeat around.  Knit all.  K2,k2tog.  K1,k2tog, k3; repeat around.  Bind off. 

Happy New Year to you all
