Little Filet Bun Cover

 Little Filet Bun Cover

Designed by Julie A Bolduc

This bun cover is the first attempt I made to design one. That is why it ended up small. I really did not know what I was doing. So, you can use it if you do not have a lot of hair to put in a bun or you can use it as a jar topper.

If you need to make the bun cover bigger, you can increase the number of rows just before adding to the elastic. And you can use a bigger hook. A size 5.

This next part is a little tricky. You will be adding the elastic. It will have a woven effect.

You can decorate it with a ribbon if you like.

NOTE: If you do not want to use the elastic, you can use a ribbon in the 11 round instead. Just weave it through and tie it on. It may work better this way anyway.

Also if you want to make this longer, you can increase your number of rows worked in rows 6-10
