Ponytail and Messy Bun Hats

I am working on a couple of new shop samples and hearing a lot about the current fad for hats with a hole to allow for a ponytail or messy bun. Seriously, any hat pattern can be used for this by binding off an inch or two before the pattern indicates. There are several great free patterns on Ravelry and I have samples for two of them in the shop: Riva Bun Hat using Noro Silk Garden Solo and the Magical “No Purling Required” Ponytail Hat in Berroco Vintage Chunky. Knit in these yarns each is an under $10 project!
