Denim Style Crochet Bucket Hat – Free Crochet Pattern

This post may contain affiliate links. If you purchase something from one of these links I will be compensated. Thank you.

This fun hat comes in 4 sizes and they can each be made from just one skein of Berroco Indigo yarn! With this awesome yarn and the correct gauge, the flair in the hat holds on it’s own, so no wire is needed. Accent your hat with a fun piece of trim or contrasting scrap of yarn, and maybe even a flower or other embellishment. Dress it up to make it your own!

Size:
Child (Adult S, Adult M, Adult L)
fits: 18 (20, 22, 24) inches

Yarn:
Berroco Indigo, Recyled Denim & cotton, 100 g/219 yd/200 m: Color 6407 Faded

Hook:
US 7/4.5 mm

Gauge:
22 sts and 22 rows = 4″ in linen st

Other supplies:
yarn needle

Stitches and Abbreviations:
ch ~ chain
sl st ~ slip stitch
sc ~ single crochet
sp(s) ~ space(s)
st(s) ~ stitch(es)

Getting Started/Notes:
Starting with round 2, this hat is worked in continuous rounds (spiral). A removable stitch marker is placed and moved each round to keep track of round ends. The last sc of each round is worked into the marked st, then a ch is made and the marker is placed around the ch.
If you use a different yarn, the structure of the hat may change, even with the correct gauge. The brim may become looser or stiffer depending on the yarn.
If you want to put a wire in the brim, this hat has wire and may help you with that adjustment.
Use some scrap yarn to make a hat band, running it under a sc from the last round of the hat sides every several inches. Tie it in a bow on the side. Or dress it up with some other trim and accents to make it your own.

  1. I have seen several of your patterns that I would enjoy making but none of your instructions take o a print-friendly button of any kind. I would also love to be able to save them to my crochet file and make them at a later date.

    • There is a link at the bottom of the patterns to where you can get the pattern in PDF from from Craftsy. It’s $2 as I loose my advertising money if you print it, and as I took the time to format it. Otherwise, there are ways to print it neatly, you just have to do some work to get it neat if you want to save the $2.

      • Thanks. I understand and will do what you suggest. Your instructions led me to think that there was an actual print-friendly button but I now see the PDF selection for $2.00.
        Happy Crocheting to you.

  3. Do you have book to buy? your patterns are fantastic.. can’t wait to try…. but I am new at crocheting so I hope to improve.

  4. I’m confused at round 7 of the top– I’ve started over this hat so many times and each time I try again I always end round 7 two stitches early.

    I did the math:
    the first SC and ch1 (2)
    + 5x sc ch-1 (10) + sc ch-1 sc (3) + ch-1 (1) (all times 3 = 42)
    + 5x sc ch-1 (10)

    = 2+42+10 = 54, not 56

    Instead of working the last sc of round 7 into the marked stitch I’m two stitches behind…

    Thank you for the pattern and love the look of this hat! I’m probably missing something silly but let me know what you think.
