Crochet Frog Bucket Hat Pattern

Updated: Apr 26

I have finally made my first crochet pattern! A crochet frog bucket hat with a ruffled brim.

This bucket hat is worked around in a spiral from the crown to the brim and is super easy to create, or customize. I used various types of yarn I had on hand to make this, and used stitch markers to keep track of my rounds.

Things you will need:

  • 90g worsted weight yarn (green)

  • Other yarns (for eyes/face and edge of brim)

- bright green, black, white, yellow, pink

  • Fiber fill (for eyes)

  • 4.25mm hook

  • Yarn needle

  • Scissors

  • Stitch markers

Gauge:

  • Crown diameter - 6"

  • Crown height - 3"

  • Brim width - 2"

  • Hat circumference - 21"

Abbreviations:

  • st(s) - stitch(es)

  • MC - magic circle

  • ch - chain

  • hdc - half double crochet

  • inc - 2 hdc in 1 st space

  • BLO - back loop only

  • FLO - front loop only

Rounds 24-25: 1 dc in each st around until brim length is reached (160 sts)

Round 26: 1 sc in each st around (160 sts) - this round is bright green on my hat

Fasten off/weave in ends

Eyes

Starting with black: MC, ch 1

Round 1: 4 sc into MC (4 sts)

Round 2: inc in each st around (8 sts), switch colors (yellow) on the last stitch of this row

Round 3: sc into each st around (8 sts), switch colors

Round 4: 2 sc in each st around (16 sts) For this, the white I used was a more fine yarn so this may be different depending on is used

Fasten off

back of crochet frog bucket hat

For the back of the eyes, I attached the main color of the hat to the eye and worked a dc into each stitch across the eye, working in rows (3 rows total) until the back of the eye is the same size as the front of the eye.


From here, I lightly stuffed the eyes with fiber fill and sewed them onto the hat with the main hat color.


For the bright green on the eyes, I attached the yarn to the outer edge of each eye and then worked 2 chains before sc in each st on the top of the eye.


Face

Blush (pink): MC, ch 1

Round 1: 4 sc into MC (4 sts)

Round 2: inc in each st around (8 sts)

I added a couple extra stitches here (10 total) so make the circle as big or as small as you would like 😊

For the mouth, create a fly stitch using a yarn needle and black worsted yarn.

I really enjoyed making this hat and I thought it would be good practice to try and write a pattern, before I get back into bikinis (or whatever else I choose to make lol). The eyes were kind of experimental and took me a couple of tries to get right, so the pattern for that section is a bit lacking. I plan to use this pattern to make a few other bucket hats too so look out for those as well on my Instagram @artbynicolegriffin

If anyone tries this pattern, let me know how it goes or ask if you have any questions! <3

Hi, I would like to make the frog floppy hat but what size is it? Baby? Child? or Adult?

Hi! So I added the measurements of my finished hat at the beginning of the pattern. The finished circumference is about 21”, which would be a good size for a bigger kid or smaller adult. I hope that helps!
