Crochet bucket hat pattern for children

This crochet e-pattern for children is available now at Bandana Heads on Etsy. Cotton crochet bucket-style hats with brims are ideal for children.

Crochet a stylish hat that you will be proud to offer as a gift for a boy or girl. Easy to follow instructions in a worksheet format let you do-it-yourself. You will learn how to do your color changes in a neat vertical line.

Try a combination of woodland colors, mountain colors, island colors, or your own combination that best suits the recipient. You will need light sport weight or 5 ply cotton yarn such as On line Linie 163, Bingo and a 3.5 mm (size E).

The childrens' pattern is an adaption of the “Valentina” style hat below worked in 4 ply fingering yarn in the colors of Colombia. Coffee brown contrasts with vibrant red with accents of orange and lime.
