While shopping last Saturday I noticed bucket hats (called "bobs" over here) in many a shop window display. Now that I think about it, I see them in shop window displays nearly every year. Clearly, bucket hats will never go out of style. (Something for which I'm grateful, because it's the only style hat that looks good on my noggin.) Please note Cheryl Tiegs's flowered bucket - from Everyday Fashions of the Sixties as Pictured in Sears Catalogs
- in the picture above. Cheryl, you are fabulous in that funky flowered bucket hat. I curtsy to you. And if anybody dares to attempt intarsia in order to recreate Cheryl's flowered bucket in a knit hat, I will curtsy to YOU*.

Now, knitalongers, any updates or questions you want to share? Have you started/finished a bucket hat? If so, let us know and give us specs on yarns and details, if you like. And if you've already knit a hat I've mentioned, do you plan on knitting another? I'm knitting hats through summer so the more the merrier, I say!
