I've been working on a few knitting projects that are taking a while, so as a quick project to break the tedium I worked up a very fast knit. This pattern is called The Better Bucket, and is available as a free pattern on Ravelry.com. I made it up out of a cotton-wool blend (80% cotton) which is quite lovely--and quite the bright pink color! It's a nice floppy bucket-style hat, perfect for puttering in the garden or sunning at the beach. I think I may add a large funky button for decoration. I mean, a bright pink hat just cries out for a funky button, don't you think?
