While Messy Bun hats have been really popular lately; I have been to busy to design one. Well, I have finally managed to get around to creating a Home made hats by Cheryl version of this trendy hat. I have even added an extra "twist" to the trend!!
Worked in America's most popular yarn, Red Heart Super Saver, this hat is very affordable to make. I really love Red Heart's Super Saver yarn. There is no dye lot, oodles of colors; 132 different colors that you can mix and match for endless color/design possibilities. I used Orchid for my hat.
I am a big fan of "simple and uncomplicated" patterns. I like to make things that don't take me forever to make!! It's a simple life for me; at least for today :-)
