This beautiful and fun pattern is mainly using the thistle stitch and some other stitches (stitching in the 3rd loop of hdc, stitching in the back loop only) to create a unique textured look.
This pattern has the instructions for 6 sizes, starting from 6-12 months size to adult size (the adult size has 3 different sizing options) for the beanie; and 3 sizing options (child, small adult and regular/medium adult size) for the messy bun beanie.
You will need approximately 86-150 yards (40-70 grams) of worsted/aran weight yarn (I used Stylecraft Special Aran), depending on the size chosen:
o 6-12 months: 40-45 grams
o Toddler: 45-50 grams
o Child: 50-55 grams
o Adult: 55-70 grams
