Ok, so by now we’ve all witnessed the inexplicable return of the 90’s style bucket hat to the fashion scene – but have you yet encountered the FUR bucket hat trend? As soon as I saw it I knew I’d have to make one for myself.

Get it on SALE exclusively at the Ko-Fi Shop for 5.99 ($2-3 dollars off the original price) until the end of October! Keep reading for more details about these designs or visit my Free Patterns Page to see everything I offer free of charge.
The Lion Brand Go For Faux Thick & Quick I had stockpiled in my yarn shelves was originally from making Ushanka Hats, a free pattern on the blog from a few years ago. Since then I’d picked up a few skeins here and there when they were on sale or when I found a neat new color. Well, wouldn’t leopard print just be perfect for a retro chapeau such as this? The colorway is actually called “Fawn” but I think it looks like cheetah fur 😉
This new spin on my faux fur hat design came at the perfect time, since I’d been wanting to convert the free version of my Ushanka & Muff set into a PDF pattern anyway. So now to celebrate the debut of the Trapper’s Bucket Hat, I’m gathering these designs all into one PDF! Read on for the details of what’s included & what you need to make ’em.
Ushanka Hat Pack
This super fuzzy and super fun hat design pack features a Jumbo weight faux fur yarn and a “P” size hook to make several designs which work up in a flash!
The Ushanka Hat is modeled after the traditional Siberian garment, a circular fur cap with earflaps that can hang down or tie up on top of the head. With this pattern you can create your own Ushanka with OR without earflaps as the first two design options.
Top off your traditional warm & fuzzy look with a vintage style muff, a super easy and quick accessory designed for keeping hands warm in freezing temps – the vintage muff design in this pattern pack uses can be made with just 1 skein of the recommended yarn.
Or create the funky, trendy fur bucket hat look for yourself in whatever color you please – the Trapper’s Bucket Hat just might be my favorite statement piece right now, with its 90’s throwback silhouette and opulent texture!
