Roaring 20s Knit Bucket Hat Pattern

Pattern Details









Skill Level:

medium skill level requirement Intermediate

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit
  • purl
  • knitting-in-the-round
  • short rows
  • single crochet (for the edging)

Pattern Description:

I love retro and vintage and especially anything from the 1920s/flapper era. This reminds me of the bygone era's bucket hats. It can be worn wth the brim four different ways - completely down to cover the eyes, one side up, both sides up, rolled completely up!

Using Loops & Threads Charisma bulky weight (#5) acylic yarn, it begins with short rows for the front and then short rows for the back. Complete instructions are given for "how to" work short rows. It is not difficult; really!!! The rest of the hat is knit-in-the-round and the yarn is then doubled for extra warmth on the cold winter days and nights.

I completed the look with 2 rounds of single crochet. Again, not difficult at all if you are a novice at crocet (and I am pretty lousy at crochet!)

I crocheted the hat band with the same single crochet stitches around the hat for added texture. There is nothing to say you can't knit a hat band around if you prefer!

Next, I popped on a broche, and voila!


Approx. 2.75 sts and 4 rounds = 1 inch

I have been knitting for 56 years and since the grandchildren arrived have been knitting daily. I decided I wanted to create easy predominantly seamless knitting projects because I love knitting in the round, and more important I hate to sew pieces together!

I have had many wonderful comments from knitters who have created items from my patterns and like their finished projects, but should ...
