6mm circular (60cm cord)
The Bucket Hat
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…!
