How to Knit a 4-in-1 Ponytail / Messy Bun Hat! EASY and QUICK.

Hello, my lovelies!
It’s time to learn to knit this EASY and QUICK 4-in-1 hat/cowl pattern.
1. Wear it like a COWL.
2. Wear it cinched up at the top for a BEANIE.
3. Shove it back on your head for more of a SLOUCH hat.
4. Open up the hole and poke your ponytail or messy bun through it.

Super cool!

To get started, follow along in the video. You can whip this out in an evening. It would make a great gift. Have fun!

Peacock Path Crochet Shawl Pattern

Hey, lovies.

A new pattern for you by yours truly. This little beauty just… happened.

I was wandering through my yarn room one day and these various shades just popped out at me and told me to make them into something. So. I did!

I didn’t have any idea what it would look like when finished, so it just emerged as I went and here it is!

The colors are very peacock-like so I am calling it: The Peacock Path Crochet Shawl.

How to Knit the Magic Loop Method

Helllooo!! Are you ready to start knitting in the round?

I’m here to show you my favorite method for doing so: The Magic Loop Method!

You can use this to knit socks and sweaters, sleeves and collars, cowls, hats, mittens, etc. Anything that is in the round.

You’ll need:

1 long circular needle (about 32″-40″)

I am using a skein of my Pearlescent Worsted weight yarn in colorway Laguna.

It’s soft and shimmering and a mix of superwash merino wool and silk. It’s hand-dyed by our lovely team of dyers and this yarn base really takes the dye so well. It just radiates!

Have a […]
