Be Summer happy with our Bucket Hat knitting pattern. This hat is giving us serious chic-gardener vibes mixed with 70s playfulness, and so we may very well wear it all year round…

This pattern is designed to be knit with our Big Cotton yarn. Comfortable, soft and easy to wear, which is how we like our hats! Knit from the brim upwards, and decreased in stitches to fit around the head, it’s perfect for intermediate knitters.

The pattern has two sizes – one for ‘pea-sized heads’ as Lauren likes to describe herself, and one for slightly larger heads. Both sizes have a good amount of stretch to them, so be sure to measure your own head to get the size best for you.

Knit your bucket hat up in a matter of hours and then it’s up to you how you style it!

Size when made


Small – 50cm + stretch

Large – 54cm + stretch
