I’ve wanted to make this Cozy Crossed messy bun beanie for a loooong time. Even before I made the Cozy Crossed Cowl.
This is a straightforward design and done in the same pattern as the Cozy Crossed Cowl.
This is a super chic beanie, as it gives you two options of wearing the buttons on the side or behind. If you’re wondering about using 7 buttons for your messy bun beanie I’ve put an alternate round to make for 5 buttons.
It’s ok if you sell items you made using LM patterns. And I’d really love it if you mentioned it was from LM.
And please, do not sell or mass produce LM patterns- (the only exception is if you are donating the handmade items to charity)
Thanks. You can read more on LM policy here.

– Ch 1 and Ch 2 at the beginning of row do not count as a stitch
– Even though this is a worsted weight tape yarn, the thickness is different from regular worsted weights.The photo below shows the difference, so in the absence of tape yarn, you’d want to use a worsted weight with a recommended hook size of 6mm.
