Ponytail hat pattern for knitters and crocheters

These Ponytail knitted hats came to my attention via Facebook. Several friends I have who know I love to knit tagged me in them. I am sure they would like to hope I make a bunch of them and send them out. LOL

So I decided to look into them a bit because several people were looking for links to patterns and I found quite a few. They are adorable and great for those of us with lots of hair that we wear up in ponytails.

I am going to give you all some links to a few patterns, some free and some for a low cost.

Lets start with the one I like best.

This is the Tea cozy Ponytail hat pattern by Woolly Wormhead on Ravelry. It has a simple look and I like the colors and the little curly part up by the ponytail.

Maybe I will knit this one up. Link to the pattern is here and it is free.

Next  is the Opal Ponytail Beanie Hat Pattern by Bead and Opal Wool Queen. It is also free and I think its cute. The colors in this one are quite appealing to me. The lacy top around the point tail is adorable.

You can find the pattern here and it’s free.

This ponytail hat pattern is called the Urban Homesteader hat by Christy Varner. It can be found here on Ravelry. It is also free. Great design, the back kind of remind me of the back of a baseball cap. Depending on where you wear your ponytail this is a great hat if you wear it low.

Another adorable Ponytail Hat pattern, called Hannah, by Blake Ehrlich on Ravelry. It is also free. Knit out of a more chunky wool it has a great design and also looks like a fun knitting project. You can find the pattern here.

Here is a Ponytail hat pattern for those of you who would rather crochet than knit. It looks adorable and simple. The pattern is on Ravelry and its by Amy Musick. You can find the pattern here. This one is not free but worth the small price if you want to crochet a cute ponytail hat for yourself or someone.

Now this one is a bit different with a brim, much like a baseball cap. It is a Ponytail hat pattern by Bead and Wool Queen on Ravelry. It is available for free on ravelry and quite a cute looking hat.

There are also quite a few ponytail hat patterns on Etsy, some similar to the ones above and some a bit different.

This one I quite like a bit.

This ponytail hat pattern is on etsy and is by CozyCappuccino the pattern page can be found here. This page is for the pair and they are one great pair of hats. I love color work and so this one appeals to me a lot. I don’t know if I will ever get around to making one, but if I did this would be the one.

You can always go to Etsy and type in ponytail hat pattern to see all the different style patterns available.

I figured  I would round some up and this seems to be a popular hat and a useful style too. Ponytails often don’t work in regular hats, and this would be a great alternative. There are many cute designs to choose from so lets start knitting up some cute hats and share them in the comments, I would love to see what you create.


Carolinian Hat by Kate Oates

Carolinian Hat by Kate Oates is going to be the next hat I knit for myself.

I chose Carolinian Hat pattern for several reasons. First I only have one ball of this yarn. And this pattern works with the amount of yardage I have.  Second I just love the spiraling pattern of the hat. The pattern is on Ravelry and it is by Kate Oates. You can find her shop here.

Browsing through the projects tab on the pattern page to see other peoples interpretation of pattern and yarns they choose, is always interesting to me.

This is my ball of Malabrigo yarn.

I recently went to visit family in Pa for the Thanksgiving holiday and got to do some yarn shopping in person. That is something I don’t get to do much being on the road all the time. So it was a real treat.

I came back to the truck with 3 large storage bags full of yarn for all kinds of projects. They are all stuffed at the foot of my bunk and its fun to have so much yarn on the road.





Knitted Flag Hat

Knitted patriotic hat


My first color work project. My hubby is a former Marine and a proud one. He likes patriotic designs and asked for a flag hat to wear this winter.

I enjoyed knitting this and love doing color work. I have always loved fair isle knitting and never had the courage to try it. Now that I live on the road and have found a new love in knitting I am up for trying all kinds of things. So this is just the first in my new journey through color work.
