Stay cool this Summer with our Bucket Hat knit kit!
Delivery within the UK is free for all orders over £60 and costs £4 for orders under £60. Speedy delivery & in-store collection available too!

Size small in Flamingo, Size large in Paprika

This fitted bucket hat is the new accessory we didn’t know we needed until now! Giving us serious chic-gardener vibes mixed with 90s playfulness, we may very well wear it all year round…

Knit with Big Cotton yarn, it’s soft, breathable and comfortable – exactly how summer hats should be. Knit from the rim upwards, and shaped around the head, it’s perfect for intermediate knitters.

The pattern has two sizes – one for smaller, or ‘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.

You can knit this bucket hat up in a matter of hours, the only choice is what colour Big Cotton to knit it in…!


Size when made

Small – 50cm + stretch

Large – 54cm + stretch
