How to crochet a ponytail hat, a handy and easy solution to wear

“Mommy, I would like a hat with a hole at the top“, my daughter asked. “This way my bun or ponytail can come out of the hat, because an ordinary hat simply does not work.” Luckily I had some thick and warm yarn and was able to quickly design a pattern to crochet a ponytail hat. It was finished in 2 days and she was so happy to be able to wear a ‘real hat’!

You also want to make your girl happy? Then this hat is so easily made and you can find the pattern on ravelry and etsy! I also joined as a designer, so you can also download the pattern there as well and start to crochet a ponytail hat! As you can see in the pictures there are 2 different patterns, a 1-color and a 2-color version, both are described in detail!

If you download the pattern, then you can join this event!
