I had a request for a cloche hat, and this pattern by fit the bill. It incorporated some techniques that were new to me including a picot hem, decorative chain stitch, and garter bar decreases.

Machine Type



Slisen’s Chemo Bucket Hat

Materials and tools

  • Worsted weight cotton, about 85 grams. I used Lily Sugar n’ Cream.
  • Garter bar (I don’t have a bulky garter bar, so I used my standard garter bar which worked just fine).


This was an easy, straightforward project. After washing and going through the dryer, the hat shrunk a bit for a good fit.
