Yeah, those roll-up mesh-y things that create perfect buns? You can totally knit them in like 10 minutes.

This is probably the easiest pattern ever.

Easy Knit Bun Tool

You will need;

  • Handful of scrap worsted weight yarn.
  • Size 8 double-pointed needles.
  • Tapestry needle.


1.) Cast on 16 stitches and join into the round.

2.) Knit 38 rounds. (Knit 5-10 rounds less if you have shorter hair, and 5-10 rounds more if you have longer hair.) Bind off.

It’s that simple.

Here’s a quick tutorial on how to use it;

1.) Pull your hair up into a ponytail and secure with a hair elastic.


2.) Roll the hair bun tool so that it looks like the picture below, and then pull your ponytail through it.


3.) Unroll the bun tool so that it is a long tube over your ponytail, with one end as close to your head as possible.


4.) Tucking the ends of your hair under and into the bun tool, roll the end of the bun tool that is farthest away from your head down and all the way to the base of your ponytail. Adjust hair and place bobby pins if needed.


If you’re like me and you compulsively need your hair out of your face to study or focus, this tool is super helpful. It’s also a great way to use up scrap yarn, and makes a great stocking-stuffer. Enjoy!
