the curly bucket hat in the 90ies was my absolute favorite as a kid and I really don’t feel like I’m too grown up to wear my own hand knitted version! even more because, it is both soft, cool and warm - what's not to like! hopefully you'll knit along too :)))
deima’s bucket hat is knitted top down. when the hat itself is knitted, it is closed off and stitches are collected up to the shade. it is quite beginner friendly and i've tried to explain it as thoroughly as possible. however, the boucle yarn can be a bit tricky, but if you're up for it - then go for it!
yarn: 2 strands of alpaca bouclé from drops (shown in color 7402 og 0602)
gauge: 14 stitches x 20 rows stockinette stitches = 10 cm x 10 cm on needle 5 mm - US 8.
needle size: 5 mm - US 8 (80 cm round needles)
measurements: the circumference of the hat measures 50 cm, but it will fit anything from size 54-58 (european hat sizes). If you have a smaller/bigger headsize, you can add/substrackt a few increases on the last round when you knit.
yarn total: 2 skeins of alpaca bouclé from drops
yarn options: kremke’s bouclé (note, this type is thinner, but softer - you can knit the hat with 2 strands held together with 1 strand of alpaca bouclé from drops, for a more chunky winter warm hat)
the pattern is digital and will be sent to your e-mail as a pdf-file.
