Making Stuff: Four Felted Bucket Hats

by This is Carrie on December 16, 2010

This past month I crocheted and felted four bucket hats and not one of them turned out to be the right size for the little girl I was hoping to gift it to.

On the bright side, I feel like a crocheted bucket hat & felting pro (except for the whole sizing aspect obviously).

At least Kit has a new hat to keep her warm.

Pattern: Felted Bucket Hat from The Purl Bee (designed to fit a man)

Yarn: Patons Classic Wool

Hat 1: fits an American Girl Doll Yarn Color:Dark Grey Mix Hook: J

Hat 2: fits a newborn  Yarn Color: Dark Grey Mix  Hook: L, 8mm

Hat 3: fits a 18 month old. Yarn Color: Moss Heather  Hook: L, 8mm (added rows to pattern)

Hat 4: fits a 2 year old.  Yarn Color: Cognac Heather  Hook: L, 8mm(2 yarns together)

Flower Pattern: LionBrand Crocheted Rosettes Pattern

That is amazing! I can’t believe the difference with before and after the felting!

They turned out SO cute, even if none fit. I love the flowers on them. I’m sure you’ll find someone who would be thrilled to receive one as a gift.

Do you want to sell them?

I was looking for felted flower patterns and happened upon your site. I see that you used the lion brand patter for the flower but what is the pattern for the leaves in the hat? They came out adorable!

I searched for a leaf pattern for a while but never really found one so I just made it up as I went along. It was a chain that I built upon on both sides using taller stitches in the middle and shorter stitches on the ends to gets the right shape. Sorry I can’t be of more help! Good luck!

So cute! I got a Kit doll for Christmas, so this will definitely come in handy.
