Who would have thought that the Messy Mom Bun Beanie crochet pattern would have been so popular? I’d like to thank you for liking, sharing and loving that pattern. I have received countless requests for sizing this pattern down to child size messy bun beanie. So here we go!
In my research for sizing this pattern, I discovered that the average child’s head size varies greatly. Heck I even asked my sister (she sports a PhD in Anthropology and is a professor of Anatomy, y’all) about child head size and she confirmed my suspicion that children’s heads are extremely hard to gauge. Kinda makes me wish I had girls instead of boys because my 7 year old son was flat out SICK of me testing this new pattern on his little head by the time I was finished. Bless his heart. ♥
As a result, I have added as much information to this pattern as possible so that you can tweak it to fit your own child’s head. And, I decided to offer it for free. Woot woot!

Be SURE to check the gauge for this project. If you find that you are not lining up with my stitches, go down (or up) a hook size so that you are as close to my gauge as possible. I will be sure to include gauges for all future patterns when it will make a difference. Not sure what the gauge means? Stay tuned because I’ve decided to write up a post just for that. You’ll love it (and need/use it) I promise.
