Scrappy Bucket Hat Project


Scrappy Bucket Hat

My friend Adrienne came in wearing this awesome little bucket hat/cloche and it looked amazing .... I knew immedately that it was a must-share! Adrienne went down a hook size, and I think that was a good move - I light my bucket hat tension on the ticher side. If, on the other hand, you prfer yours loose & floppy, do up to the prescribed 6mm hook.

You can make the hat with several colours, like in the pattern, in which case you might want to go for a yarn like Berroco Pima Soft that comes in 50g skeins (see pictures below for colour ideas). Alternately, you can make it with one colour, or two ... the suggested quantities and yarns are below.

Skill Level

Intermediate-beginner: single crochet and working in the round. This hats isn't ideal as your very first project, but if you know how to do a basic single crochet, you should be able to make this pattern.

Size

When choosing a size, go by head actual head circumference as measured just above ears. This style looks better slightly oversized (rather than on the tighter side) so if between sizes, size up. Checking gauge as described in pattern is essential to ensuring hat fits as expected.
