As promised in my last article, I’m back with a new crochet hat for kids and teens, but this time it’s a bear ears bucket hat made with velvet yarn (chenille yarn) to add to the cuteness of it all. It’s a really easy and quick project to make, so I would say it’s a beginner friendly pattern to follow along and to finish in a day or two. Crocheters, roll up your sleeves, and let’s get to work to make this adorable hat for your loved little ones!
- Velvet (chenille yarn) – I used the brand Kartopu Yumurcak (1 skein should be enough – 100g)
- 6 mm crochet hook
- Yarn needle
- Stitch markers
sl st: slip stitch
sc: single crochet
R: round / row
Notes – Crochet Bear Bucket Hat
Every round ends with a sl st to join the round.
Every row ends with a ch1 then turn.
This hat is ideal for kids starting 8 years old and teens.

Cut the yarn and weave in the ends.
Make a magic circle. We will work in rows, so no sl st at the end of the 1st row. End it with a ch 1 then turn, we’re working in rows.
