Hey guys! Marisa here!
Today I am going to debut my BRAND NEW PATTERN for the wildly popular “messy bun beanie” but first, here’s a little bit of my backstory:
I started Mountain Mommy’s Crochet (on Facebook) in the fall of 2012, right after we moved back to Wyoming! I jumped in learning random patterns and soon I was getting 50+ orders a month. I started off doing hats of all sizes, and then towards the end, I focused mainly on newborn photography props. If you want to check it out, you can see my work here!
I was busy…. so busy in fact I felt like I never did anything except crochet from the moment I woke up until the moment I went to bed!! It was actually getting to a point where there were so many crochet businesses out there (many of whom were charging less than half the price of what I was), that I was forced to either sell my items at dirt cheap prices, or quit. I wasn’t really too sure what to do.
It was at about this time (March of 2014), when I started using Young Living Essential Oils and decided that I should jump in this business with both feet and leave my crocheting to the side for awhile. Now, over two years later, I am a Silver Leader with Young Living and I have barely crocheted at all….. (If you want to know anything about Young Living Essential Oils, shoot me a message, I love to chat oils too)!!!
Until these last couple of months!! I’m totally, 100% addicted to crocheting again!!!
We have a HUGE, HUGE family (my husband and I have 15 nieces and nephews), and I really struggle on what to do for everyone for Christmas. Whenever we buy gifts, we easily spend hundreds of dollars because all the little things add up, and shipping is RIDICULOUS!
This year I decided to make hats for a majority of my family and our signature homemade candy (that we’ve made for the last couple of years). All of my family is getting my signature “poof hat”. Last year I created this design, but I’ve never shared the pattern (even though whenever I post pictures of it, I get multiple people interested in it)! I’ve been holding out 😉
This week I’ve been tagged easily 50 times in those awesome “Messy Bun Beanies” and so I decided to tweak my “poof hat” and make it into a messy bun beanie!!! The awesome thing about this hat, is that this ONE pattern fits my preschooler, my second grader AND me without tweaking it at all!
Here’s little Ms. Oaklee Brynn modeling for me this morning 🙂 She has been refusing to take it off!

****When you order this pattern, come back here and comment below with how you like it and feel free to share a picture of the hat YOU created!! I will be choosing 3 people to get their money back from their hat purchase from me, because it’s Christmas time, and I’m totally in a giving mood!!! I will also FINALLY be releasing my “poof hat” pattern in the next couple of weeks and I will be sending out this pattern out FREE to a few of you who post here****
I think this pattern is really unique and I am so excited to share it with all of you!
