Ponytail Hat

Do you have long hair and wearing a hat it’s just a mess? Well then this Ponytail Hat is for you!

And if you have curly hair, like mine, you will be glad to know that it is the best solution I have found for those bad hair days.

I hope this Ponytail Hat will be as useful to you as it has been for me and enjoy both doing it and using it.

To crochet this hat you will need:

13 double crochet – 1 single crochet – slip stitch into the elastic band – chain 1 and turn.

From the 5th row on we repeat rows 3 and 4 until reaching a width of approximately 55 cm.

Put right side inside and wrong side outside and join ends with slip stitch.

At one end we must have two loops from each double crochet of previous row and at the other end we must have one loop from the foundation chain.

Insert the hook into these three loops and make a slip stitch all the way across until you reach the elastic band.

Weave in the ends and that’s it! You have your hat finished!
