I’m back and with a new free beanie pattern! The next pattern in the line up is The Autumn Ribbed Messy Bun Beanie. This beanie has to be my favorite messy bun beanie that I have designed so far. Texture has always been a huge interest of mine and any stitch that produces a incredible texture is automatically my favorite!
To achieve the beautiful ribbed texture of this messy bun beanie is just a simple repeat of double crochet and front post double crochets. It’s amazing to me that simply changing where you insert a stitch completely changes the texture. It also doesn’t hurt that front post double crochets are so much fun to do. This is the perfect pattern to get lost in because of the repeats so grab your yarn and hook and put on your favorite movie and get to stitching!
I hope you all enjoy this pattern and all of its textured goodness. Happy Crocheting!

100 – 120 yards of Weight 4 Worsted Weight Yarn
For most of my messy bun beanie and regular beanie patterns I prefer to use a softer and a little bit of a thicker worsted weight yarn. I like it gives so much more definition to the stitches and the details don’t get lost in the project. The brands I tend to gravitate the most toward are Lion Brand Wool Ease, Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice and Loops & Threads Impeccable. It really just depends on availability as well as the colors offered in that particular line. If you would like to use the yarn I used in this pattern click here!
