Crocheted Bucket Hat

For me a bucket hat is essential during this sunny time and I just had to create a crocheted version of a such. As I wanted to make it suitable for both him and her, I really had to reign myself in and not go crazy with all sorts of cute stitches. After several different attempts, I finally decided on using the Herringbone Halfdouble Crochet.
This elegant stitch has a great definition and is a fantastic neutral base for any embellishments you might wish to add.

I often find it extremely difficult to crochet items for men. The line between masculine and cute is very fine – though there are also some very colourful and creative designs out there for him. Now all the men in our lives will wear whatever we make them, because they love us. But I see it as an extra bonus that he likes the item too.
So now I think I have found the solution!
I keep the stitches simple – though that does not been basic… ie working in the backloop only or frontpost/backpost stitches.
Then I will choose a “masculine” colour. Since this is an individual choice, I find by using his favourite colour he is more inclined to loving it.

Top 5 items to make for him

– that are not scarves, mittens and hats

  1. Necktie
  2. Bowtie
  3. Beer Cozies
  4. Coasters
  5. Slippers

I have created a pattern for a crocheted necktie, which he actually liked! The simple twist to the Single Crochet creates a beautiful texture and the sheen from the yarn provides a timeless elegance.

Can you guess what my husband’s favourite colour is?
