Stay cool this summer with an easy crochet bucket hat! This easy-to-follow pattern uses basic stitches and cotton yarn to create a breathable bucket hat perfect for sunny days.

Remember those 90s style bucket hats? After seeing them everywhere this summer, I was inspired to lean into the nostaligia and design my own crochet version! 

I went through several versions, tweaking the fit each time, before finding the perfect yarn and shape. Here’s why I love this pattern:

  • Seamless:  This hat is worked in the round.  And by offsetting the increases, we’ll create a nice, round shape. You know how sometimes when you’re working in the round and all the increases are stacked on top of each other, your circle starts to look a bit like a hexagon? Yeah, not here. This pattern ensures your hat maintains a nice, smooth, round shape from crown to brim.
  • Packable: Soft cotton yarn makes a scrunchable, packable hat. Just roll it up, toss it in your beach bag or suitcase, and go! No worries about it losing its shape or getting crushed.
  • Lots of sizes from Baby to Adult XL, so you can make bucket hats for the whole family.
  • Easy to customize: Keep it simple with a solid color, or mix it up with stripes, color blocking, or even a checkerboard pattern.

Is this pattern good for beginners?

Yes, I’ve classified this project as “Easy”.  It uses only a few basic crochet stitches, and the pattern works up relatively quickly. It’s a good way to practice single crochet increases, and working in the round.

Materials

Let’s talk about what you’ll need to make this bucket hat.

Yarn 

For bucket hats, you really want to choose a fiber that’s breathable and has a bit of structure. After trying a few cotton yarns, I found WeCrochet’s Dishie yarn to have the perfect balance of softness and structure.  It has a tighter twist than other cotton yarns, which means it will split less while you crochet. And since it’s softer, it’s nicer to crochet with than other kitchen cotton yarns.  

Yarn substitutions

If you can’t get Dishie yarn, you can try other cotton yarns, cotton-linen blends, cotton-bamboo blends, or even raffia yarns. But when subbing yarns, keep two things in mind:

  1. One, try to match the yarn weight as closely as possible. Thinner yarns will make a floppier hat. (Even within the “worsted” category, there is a lot of variation. For example, I find Lily Sugar’n Cream to be thicker than Dishie, which is, in turn, thicker than Lion Brand 24/7 Cotton and I Love This Cotton.)
  2. And two, consider the texture. Stiffer yarns will give you a more structured hat. I find kitchen cottons like Sugar’n Cream and Dishie have more structure than drapey yarns like I Love This Cotton.

Crochet Hook

I recommend a G-6 (4.0 mm) hook. But, you’ll need to check your gauge to see what hook you need. Use a larger hook if your gauge is too tight, or a smaller hook if your gauge is too loose.

Notions 

  • yarn needle, to weave in the ends
  • stitch marker, to keep track of your rounds
  • ruler or tape measure, to measure your gauge.

Crochet Bucket Hat Pattern

Here is the free pattern for the crochet bucket hat. Scroll down to the bottom of this post for a printable version, or consider purchasing the PDF.

Sizes

Choose a size based on your actual head circumference. If you’re between sizes, I always recommend sizing up! Bucket hats look better when they’re slightly oversized, rather than too tight.

Baby (Toddler, Child, Adult S, Adult M, Adult L, Adult XL)

Head Circumference: 17.5 (19, 20.5, 22, 23, 24.5, 26”) / 44.5 (48.5, 52, 56, 58.5, 62, 66cm)

Finished Measurements

Hat Circumference (excluding brim): 18 (19.5, 21, 22.5, 23.5, 25, 26.5”) / 45.5 (49.5, 53.5, 57, 59.5, 63.5, 67.5 cm)

Yarn Requirements

60 (75, 90, 100, 115, 130, 150g) WeCrochet Dishie 100% Cotton yarn

114 (143, 171, 190, 219, 247, 285 yds) / 104 (131, 157, 174, 200, 226, 261 m)

Suggested Hook

US G-6 (4.0mm)

Notions

  • Tapestry needle
  • Stitch maker

Gauge

18 sts and 18 rows = 4 in/10cm  

Measured over sc in the round, after blocking.

Getting the correct gauge is important for the fit of this pattern.

To test your gauge, crochet the Crown section of the hat pattern and measure the width of the circle. It should measure about 4 inches wide after Round 9.

If your circle is too small, that means your crochet is too tight, and you need to use a slightly larger hook. If your circle is too large, that means your crochet is too loose, and you need to use a slightly smaller hook.

Pattern Notes

  • Pattern is written using US crochet terms.
  • Pattern is worked in continuous rounds. When you get to the end of the round, don’t turn your work or make a turning chain. Instead, make the first stitch of the next round in the first stitch of the previous round.
  • Use a stitch marker to mark the first stitch of the round. 

Abbreviations

  • ch: chain
  • FLO: Front Loop Only
  • sc: single crochet
  • sl st: slip stitch
  • st(s:) stitch(es)

Special Stitches

increase (inc): Work two single crochet stitches in one stitch.

sc flo: single crochet through the front loop only

“Single crochet through the front loop” is a variation of the basic single crochet stitch. To make it, insert your hook under the front loop of the stitch (instead of under both loops). Then, work the stitch as usual: yarn over and pull a loop, yarn over and pull through 2 loops.

Pattern Instructions

Crown Section

In this section, we’ll crochet a circle for the top of the hat.  We’ll increase 6 stitches every round.

ALL SIZES

Round 1: Start with a magic ring. 6 sc into the magic ring.

Place a stitch marker to mark the beginning of the round.

Round 2: inc in each st around (12 sts)

Round 3: (inc, sc in next st) six times (18 sts)

Round 4: (inc, sc in next 2 sts) six times (24 sts)

Round 5: (inc, sc in next 3 sts) six times (30 sts)

Round 6: 2 sc (inc, sc in next 4 sts) five times, inc, 2 sc (36 sts)

Finishing

ALL SIZES

Fasten off your yarn and weave in any loose ends with a tapestry needle.

Tips and Troubleshooting

Before we finish up, let me share a couple of pro tips that I’ve learned along the way.

Fit issues. First and foremost, be sure to check your gauge! I can’t stress this enough – getting the right gauge is key to a well-fitting hat. After you’ve completed round 9 of the crown, measure your work – it should be about 4 inches wide. If it’s too small, try going up a hook size; if it’s too big, go down a size.

Sore hands. My second tip? Take breaks! I know, I know – when you’re in the zone, it’s tempting to just keep crocheting until your hat is finished. But cotton yarn can be tough on the hands, and the last thing you want is to end up with sore, achy fingers. So be sure to give yourself some rest when you need it, and maybe even do a few hand stretches while you’re at it.

Customizing Your Hat

Here are some ideas to customize your hat with different colors and patterns.

  • Stripes. My favorite way to customize these hats is by adding stripes.  Work one or two rounds in Color A, and then switch to Color B for a couple of rounds.
  • Color blocking: Work the crown in one color, the body in a second color, and the brim in a third.
  • Strawberry bucket hat: Crochet the Crown section in green yarn, and crochet the rest of the hat in red yarn. Then add white or black seeds with embroidery floss.
  • Frog bucket hat: Crochet the hat in light green yarn. Then add two eyes, and embroider a mouth with black embroidery thread.
  • Granny Square bucket hat: Crochet the Crown section, then sew on a strip of 3.5-inch granny squares for the Middle section. Then, add the Brim section.
  • Cottage core mushroom bucket hat: Crochet the hat in red yarn, and add cream-colored circle appliques to the sides and top.

    Mine came out really big. I’m going to try a different yarn and maybe a 3/3.5 hook. Some guy with a big head will enjoy this one lol.

    @Sarah Stearns, thanks. I actually ordered the yarn you used so fingers crossed 2nd times a charm.

    Good idea. This time might I suggest checking the gauge so you don't make the whole thing before finding out it's too big. :)

    Just finished! Really cute. Made it a 4 mm hook and Big Twist Party yarn in the color Sunset.

    I am trying to determine if I can just add a few rows to the middle section so that the hat will come down over my ears to fully cover my hairline as I currently have no hair. Any advice?

    Hi Sonya, Yes, that should work. I'd add a plain round (or two, depending on what you need) inbetween the increase rounds.

    I just made this for myself and I want to make a matching one for my daughter! Her head is 17 inches, any recommendations on how to adjust the pattern for her smaller head? Thank you!

    Love this pattern, thank you! How would I make this smaller? Smaller hook size?.

    Hi Lana, You could experiment with a thinner yarn and a smaller hook size, sure. Or, you could also try crocheting fewer increase rounds in the Crown Section of the hat (stopping at Round 10-12 for example), before moving on the the Middle section.
