Nostalgia Bucket Hat Crochet Kit by MeganFaithMakes x YAK

The Nostalgia Bucket Hat kit is here! A few months ago we started chatting with @MeganFaithMakes about the possibility of collaborating on a beginner crochet kit. Designing our own crochet kits is something we had wanted to do for a long time but somehow we never had the time – nor the crochet expertise – to make it to happen. Megan has been a customer of ours for a few years and it’s been a pleasure to see her bloom into the accomplished designer she is today. We were thrilled when she agreed to collaborate on the project and even more so when she proposed to design a bucket hat.

The Nostalgia Bucket Hat – reminiscent of the 90’s – is constructed in the round from the top down using only single crochet, which means this pattern has no separate pieces to sew together. The pattern calls for a 4.50 mm hook worked with an aran weight yarn, which gives the hat a stiff, structured finish. It can be worked up quickly in a few evenings, or an afternoon and evening for those more confident. Perfect for beginners wanting to make their first accessory, this project is best suited to people who can single crochet in the round with confidence.

The kit comes with everything you need;

– 3 balls of WoolAddicts Joy
– A 4.50 mm crochet hook
– A tapestry needle
– A stitch marker 
– The Nostalgia Bucket Hat pattern

What we love about this kit is how accessible yet how effective it is – turning something as simple as a single crochet into a cool and stylish accessory. WoolAddicts Joy is a blend of organic cotton and lyocell which makes this hat perfectly suited for summer, however you could easily experiment with various fibre blends to make something more suited for the autumn & winter. A lovely present for yourself or any beginner crocheter wanting the satisfaction of creating something beautiful.

In other news… Not long after starting working on this project together we, at YAK, were looking for a new member of staff. Megan applied and so we are also delighted to announce that Megan has become a fully fledged member of the YAK team! So you’ll see a lot more of her in the next few months – in the shop and on our blog. If you are not familiar with her work already we strongly suggest you to have a look at her patterns and made-to-order pieces.
