Bucket hatThe pattern calls for carrying yarn underneath your stitches, but I didn’t like the look of the seam when I did it this way, so to me, it’s worth the extra work to cut and weave in ends later.

This is the perfect hat to add an appliqué to. I wanted a “cape cod” style hat, so for this one I used denim style cotton yarn, and added a crab appliqué. The pattern for the crab can be found HERE.


Happy hooking!
