You might remember these hats I made a few months ago. My older guy’s hat didn’t fit very well. (Too big.) So I ran across this other bucket hat pattern for kids and decided to give it a go.
I used some twill fabric I had received for free. I added extra top stitching at all the seams.
(I didn’t use a double needle. Just stitched two seams.) You can read more about problems I've had with the double needle.
I didn’t use any interfacing. Just the twill. It wrinkles a bit for my taste, but at least it fits! The other hat I had made was too deep.
I definitely recommend this pattern I used. I made the XL size for my 3-year-old, which turned out a little bigger than I had thought.
Better too big than too small, right?
