Free Crochet Pattern: Ponytail Hat

Ponytail hat 1
I’ve seen these adorable hats making the rounds on Pinterest and Ravelry, so I decided to attempt one for myself! As you can see, the results are amazing. Not only is this hat comfy and cozy, but totally wonderful for those of us with long hair! Gone are the days when we have to either wear our hair down and try to figure out if it should be tucked behind our ears, or left out, or worse, throw it up in a bun and try and squeeze it in the hat somehow. This hat solves so many problems!! Just throw our hair up in a high or low ponytail, and put on this awesome hat. These would be perfect for those who like to run in the winter! See how we did it in the video below, and scroll down for the free pattern!
