When it comes to crocheting hats for summer, it looks like I make at least 2 every year! This summer, I decide to make Bicket hats, but not just for me alone. I made 3! My kids love theirs also.

This easy crochet bucket hat would make a beautiful set for mommy and me!

Since I love the stitch combination used in this bucket hat, I decided to match it with a backpack! I love the outcome.
