Summer Bucket Hat Crochet Pattern

Summer Bucket Hat Crochet Pattern

Early in my crochet career I thought I’d make a killing selling dishcloths and face scrubs made with cotton yarn. I soon found out the time and effort versus profit would not make it worthwhile so I decided to make dishcloths for my own use. But there’s only so many dishcloths I can have at one point in time so I ended up with a bin full of cotton yarn, which I have slowly used over the years. I’ve been on a mission to use up yarn that’s been sitting around (instead of buying more yarn) and with the lovely summer weather I felt inspired to make a bucket hat. Scroll down for my new summer bucket hat crochet pattern!

Making the hat was quick and easy plus the cotton I had sitting around was perfect for this project. It’s durable, washable and lightweight!
