I stumbled upon this bucket style of hat one evening while relaxing in my rocking chair. Crocheting is so relaxing, and stumbling upon a new design is so exciting. The color combinations are endless.
The silk artificial daisy on the side has a crystal center that is securely sewn in place. You will find a tutorial at the end of the pattern.
I love the pink rows of mini popcorn’s. This would look great using any other variegated yarn. Use the pattern below to make this easy to wear hat for you or someone special.
Red Heart Super Saver, medium (worsted) weight acrylic 4-ply yarn; 7oz./ 364 yds./198 g per skein (Green Camouflage & Petal Pink) were used for hat pictured.
Gerber Daisy, artificial silk. Crystal sew on stone.
3”wide=10hdc=3rows=1 ½” (using 4-ply yarn and “H” hook)
3”wide=9hdc= 3rows =1 ¾” (using 4-ply yarn and “J” hook)
Important note: “H” hook is what you will use to achieve a size 12mo-4t sized hat, and the “J” hook will give you the larger sizes.
HOOK:H/8/5MM (use this hook for 12-24mo & 2t-4t)
12 – 24mo = 18″ – 19.5″ : 2T – 4T = 20″ – 20.5″
J/9/5.5mm Hook( use this hook for 5t-preteen & adult sizes)
5T – Preteen or adult extra small = 20.5″-21.5
Mini Popcorn = yo pull up loop in nxt sc, using that loop only and leaving original loop on hook, ch3, pull loop through both loops on hook.

Daisy with Rhinestone Center
Using a purchased daisy, take it off the stem. It will pull off with a little effort.
Take the plastic parts off of the flower, keeping the flower petals together as they were on the stem
Use a purchased Rhinestone that has holes drilled in the sides for sewing in place. This is really a button with the holes on the side.
Notice the holes on the side of the stone for sewing in place. Then using needle and thread sew onto hat in place desired, going through all of the petals. It is easiest to insert the needle from the bottom beside the stone, and then insert the needle down into the hole.
