    This is a cute assortment of ponytail hats, but they all require that you situate your ponytail to correspond to the one-position hole. Your hat does not have to be the boss of your ponytail! I have several patterns posted on Ravelry that button up the back so you can wear your ponytail high, low, or in-between. Easy knitting for beginners; search “Double Cable Ponytail Hat”, “Button Ponytail Hat.”, and “Ridges Ponytail Hat.”

    Tthis is so true, but I imagine whrn $ signs are in sight some can’t resist, so seeing an opportunity, feel thet must jump on it. If you want to make a Pony Tail or Messy Beanie, and have much experience at all, you may simply began decreasing earlier and finish when the opening is the size you prefer. No pattern needed !!

      Hi Brenna, I’m sorry but I don’t control the prices and yes, it appears that the maker has raised the price. I’ve made the update. Thank you for bringing it to my attention.
