DIY Bucket Hat – Crochet Pattern
It’s hard to believe it’s already 2020! I am hoping 2022 will be a much better year than 2021. If you follow me on YouTube or Facebook you already know that 2021 was a tough year for me and my family. So much loss. I want to thank everyone for their support, it has meant to much to us.
Onto happier things… even though it’s winter I still look forward to warmer weather every year. San Diego has been unusually cold and wet this winter. I know we are spoiled with good weather. I’m not quite prepared when it gets chilly or get too much rain. We really needed the rain since California has been in a state of drought for many years now.
In preparation for the warmer weather I decided to make an DIY Bucket Hat – Crochet Patten. This bucket hat is easy to make and it is so comfortable. It’s a fun way to protect your face from the sun. Using only basic crochet stitches you will be wearing your new bucket hat in no time at all. I really hope you like it.
I chose to use cotton yarn since I suspect this hat might end up getting wet. I plan to wear it to the beach and park outings. I like the fact that it can be embellished with flowers, patches, etc. Even a silk flower will look nice. You can use whatever fiber yarn you prefer but remember it will be warmer than cotton. Cotton is cool and it breathes well.
I will be crocheting the woman’s size, but will give some hook size suggestions for other sizes. Just remember, everyone has different tension when crocheting so sizes will vary. The good things is that yarn does stretch so it is very forgiving.
