Summer Bucket Hat Crochet Pattern

My Hubby is always getting so sunburned 
while working out in the yard.
 He loves working on his tractor, but he forgets to wear a hat. 
When he does wear a hat, it's a baseball cap,
 which lets his neck get so sunburned.

So I made him a Cotton Bucket hat to cover 
his head and his neck.
I Liked it so much I decided it needed a
 flower so us girls could wear it too.
How to crochet a Summer Bucket Hat - Part 1
See this Video on my Youtube channel at this LINK

Hat Fits a 19 to 20 inches head
It is a loose fitting hat, and very comfy to wear on a warm day.
I chose to make it out of Cotton yarn,
 so it would be cooler,
 but you can use any worsted weight (4)yarn, 
and the hat will work up just fine.

I have to admit I really like this hat, 
and will have to make him another one, 
because I am keeping this one!
I have some beige cotton yarn, 
beige is more his style anyway.

I did make Maximo a bucket hat too.
He has very sensitive skin, 
and actually sunburns on 
the top of his head.
