Puppy Love Messy Bun Beanies

Valentine's Day is just 10 days away, and when I think of Valentine's Day, I think of ♥hearts♥. So today I'm sharing a few messy bun beanies I've made using the Puppy Love Slouchy Hat pattern by Whistle & Ivy. These hats are so fun to make, and you can make them with so many color combinations.

The first Puppy Love Messy Bun Beanie I made featured Seahawks colors. The main color of the hat is gray and it has alternating rows of blue and green hearts. I made one for myself since I am a Seahakws fan. And I recently made on for an Etsy customer.
 Here I am wearing my Puppy Love Messy Bun Beanie in Seahawks colors.

An Etsy customer liked my Seahawks [inspired] hat, so she ordered one and also requested one in Raiders colors.

I'm not a Raiders fan, but black and silver/gray is a great color combo! 

These hats are versatile. Since they have a drawstring, you can leave an opening for you bun or ponytail, or you can use the drawstring to close the opening and wear they hat as a slouchy beanie.I love having options! Each hat has fun pom-poms on the ends of the drawstrings.

After the costumer received her messy bun hats in Seahawks and Raiders colors, she request a couple more hats. She wanted a black hat with pink hearts, and she wanted a hat with LuLaRoe colors. 

 I searched through my massive yarn stash for the perfect colors for the LuLaRoe [inspired] hat. I ended up using Caron Simply Soft's White, Sunshine, Persimmon, Strawberry, Watermelon, Robin's Egg Blue, Berry Blue, and Lavender. 

I found this hat to be the most fun to make. I enjoyed using so many bright colors. It reminds me of a rainbow.

Rainbow hearts!

Here's how the hats look from behind.

I really enjoyed making these versatile hats, and I will be making more soon and listing them in my Etsy shop.
