My very favorite hat is a fuzzy black bucket hat, and I’ve wanted it in lots of different colors for the absolute longest time ever. And when my kiddo tried to steal it from me, I realized I’m not the only one who absolutely loves it. So I designed a knitted one!

The Essential Bucket Hat is a quick knit and fits a wide range of heads. After my kiddo tried the green one on, I realized there needed to be a slightly bigger and longer one because he’s not the only one in the world with tons of gorgeous hair. The larger size still only takes one skein of super bulky yarn! And bonus! The wheat-colored hat is made with six strands of fingering weight yarn, so you can make your own tweedy colorway from stash!

This listing is for a PDF downloadable hand knitting pattern only. You will have unlimited access to the downloads through your account.

This pattern can also be purchased as part of my Acts of Kindness eBook.

This hat is perfect for one skein of super bulky, but you can also make it with 5 to 6 strands of fingering weight yarn held together as in the wheat colored version! Expect the hat to take about 150 grams of wool. The smaller size is shown in green variegated bulky and in wheat; the larger size is shown in blue variegated bulky. Note: the male model has TONS of hair in that hat; the female model has much much less hair. This hat is super forgiving fit-wise. The last two pics show the hat blocking!
