How to Make a Simple Crochet Bucket Hat: A Beginner's Tutorial

Crochet is a great way to make your own accessories, and making a bucket hat is a fun and easy project to start with!

With just a few basic stitches, you can create a custom hat that fits perfectly and matches your personal style. This tutorial will guide you through the steps of making a simple crochet bucket hat.


  • Yarn (size 4 acrylic, or any other type of yarn you prefer)
  • Crochet hook (5mm)
  • Scissors
  • Tapestry needle


Step 1: Magic Circle (MC) or Chain 4

The first step is to create a magic circle (MC) or chain 4 and make slip stitches on the first chain. The magic circle is a technique used to create a tight center for your work.

If you're not familiar with it, you can easily find tutorials online. Otherwise, simply chain 4 and slip stitch in the first chain to form a loop.

Step 2: Double Crochet (dc)

Next, you will use the double crochet (dc) stitch to create the body of the hat. Work 12 dc stitches into the magic circle or chain 4 loop. Slip stitch to join the round.

Step 3: Double Crochet in the Back Loop Only (dc BLO)

For the next round, work double crochet in the back loop only (dc BLO) of each stitch from the previous round. This will create a ridged effect on the outside of the hat. Slip stitch to join the round.

Step 4: Double Crochet in the Front Loop Only (dc FLO)

For the third round, work double crochet in the front loop only (dc FLO) of each stitch from the previous round. This will create another ridged effect on the inside of the hat. Slip stitch to join the round.

Step 5: Repeat Rounds 3 and 4

Repeat rounds 3 and 4 until the hat reaches the desired height. You can adjust the number of rounds depending on how deep you want the hat to be.

Step 6: Slip Stitch (sbx)

To finish the hat, slip stitch (sbx) in each stitch from the previous round. This will create a smooth edge on the brim of the hat. Cut the yarn and weave in the ends with a tapestry needle.

And that's it! You've made a simple crochet bucket hat that can be easily customized to fit your style. Try using different yarns, colors, or adding embellishments like flowers or buttons.

This project is perfect for beginners and makes a great gift for friends and family. Enjoy!
