Bucket hats are really cool – and here are some of the ones I have made. There is no pattern, and each has been a bit of an experiment – basically, I just winged it . Essentially, there are 3 sections to the hat (note that the hat is made as a whole – so the 3 sections are not crocheted separately and sewn together – but as a whole) :
- the crown,
- the middle and then
- the rim.
I used single crochet as the stitch of choice for the whole hat. I worked the crown in a circle, till it was around 6.5 inches in diameter. For the middle part, I kept going till it was a band which reached the top of my ear. And then finally, I made the rim – approximately 2.5 inches , but it’s really upto you. As the rim is flared, it was also quite an experiment – and I undid and redid this part several times .
Below are some of the hats I made. Big thanks to Jamie for helping model one of them . These hats were made with acrylic yarn using a 4mm crochet hook.
Enjoy the “Hats”travaganza!
