I like the Surf Song Convertible design for many reasons. One it can be worn as a beanie, a cowl or a messy bun hat. It’s pretty and functional accessory to have on hand. This is a tight stitch and makes for a warm hat for the colder areas, yet has openings for air to pass through. You can find more of my messy bun crochet patterns HERE. Enjoy!
