The Everyday Crochet Bucket Hat Pattern is a cute and comfortable hat. Plus, it’s easy to make! There’s a cute detail around the brim, a lot like the Strawberry Patch Hat. The brim is made a little differently, though. It’s a little more floppy and can easily be flipped up in the front for a super cute look!
This hat is the 7th pattern in the Crochet Along for a Cause. We are making 1 hat per week to donate to a cancer center all summer long. There’s always time to join! You can find all the details and hat patterns HERE.

Breann………Does the beginning ch stitch in each round count as a stitch? (In the Everyday Bucket Hat Pattern)
I would think not since the directions say…chain 2, make 10 stitches, stitch count is 10, etc.
No, the beginning ch 2 does not count as a stitch
I got I question on row 3 what dose, “*dc in 1, 2 dc in next*”mean?
Dc in 1 stitch, 2 dc in next stitch 🙂
The two double crochets in one stitch is your increase.
Thanks everyone………??❤️? just got back from Michaels starting The Everyday Bucket Hat tomorrow. So enjoying all the patterns. Have a great weekend everyone……..?
Hello!! I just finished my first of these hats. Love the pattern!! Just wanted to mention that if you need to add another row (up to 70 dc for round 7) to hit the 6 and a half inches for the diameter like I had to, you may want to add in two extra stitches somewhere to prepare for round 18 since you need a multiple of four. I decided to add an extra single crochet at the beginning and halfway through round 17 to hit 72. I was then able to do round 18 no problem. Just add two stitches somewhere in row 17 if you need to add or remove one row (that is, you’re repeating 50 or 70 stitches) when you get done with the base circle. (Adding or removing an even number of rows doesn’t require a change, though!!) Just thought I’d share that with everyone! 🙂
Hi, I’m trying a hat for the first time and using the bucket pattern. I’ve done fine through the first three rows but am confused with the next few. When in round four it says ‘dc in 2, 2 dc in next’- I’m not sure what that means! And so on for the next rounds!
Hi! You’ll work 1 dc in 2 stitches, then 2 in the next dc
I figured it out!
what do you measure the diameter in after making the circle. it just says 6.5
The diameter of the circle after round 6 is 6.5″
For some reason my hats go fine up until the sides…it never starts to go down-wards it just grows into a big floppy circle. Help?!?
Hm… I wonder if your tension is too loose. Try going down a hook size 🙂
Sorry if I missed this but I can’t see how much yarn to buy? I have to order it online so want to get the right amount. Thanks!
Less than 150g 🙂
Sorry. I’m not sure about the sizing. I’m looking to make a hat for 3 year old and a 13 year old. I’m wondering about sizing. Sorry if I’ve missed this. Thanks
This is an adult size hat 🙂
Round 15 says dc every stitch ch space around? I’m sorry I’m just confused ? Could you please explain?
Hi! Round 14 is made up of cluster stitches & ch spaces. For round 15, dc in each cluster stitch and ch-1 space around. Hope that helps!
