Bucket hats are a great way to add a pop of color to your wardrobe. Perfect for the warmer months of Spring and Summer, these hats work up quickly and don’t require much yarn. 

A Bit of Bucket Hat History

Bucket hats were created as a functional accessory for Irish farmers and fishermen in the early 1900s to protect them from both rain and sun. During World War II, denim bucket hats, nicknamed “Daisy Mae,” were standard U.S. military issue to protect soldiers and sailors from the elements.

In the 1980s, the bucket hat made an appearance as a fashion trend for hip hop artists such as Rev Run from Run DMC, and LL Cool J. Many 80s and 90s accessories have re-emerged in today’s trends, and bucket hats have also returned to the spotlight!
