Finally got around to working up a bucket hat for knitters! The bucket hat is worked bottom up, starting at the brim and working up for the top. The linen stitch pattern is worked in the round for the entire piece with decreases made to shape the hat.

The hat measures (lying flat):

Brim to top: 19 cm / 7.5 inches
Across brim: 33 cm / 13 inches

Gauge 14 sts and 28 rounds = 4” worked in linen stitch on 6 mm [US 10] needles, blocked.

For reference, my head measurement is 55 cm / 21.5 inches and the hat fit me perfectly.


Suggested Needles


Suggested Yarn

Aran Weight Yarn held double.

Yarn used in sample We Are Knitters The Cotton (one skein used and held double). If you use a different colour for the brim edge, you will need 1 ball of each colour.
