Waves & Wild Sandcastle Bucket Hat - PDF sewing pattern


The Sandcastle Bucket Hat is reversible bucket style sunhat.

Make it from knit or woven fabrics! It has a wide brim to offer good sun protection. It is simple to put together but does involve joining curves which can be challenging for absolute beginners.

Head on over to W&W blog to find a tutorial for adding a safety chin strap. Additionally, there’s the option to use water resistant fabrics and make a wonderful rain hat! Altogether it’s a fabulous pattern for the whole family, all year round!

This is an instant download PDF, not a finished item. Refunds can not be given for purchases made in error due to the digital nature of PDF patterns.


Print the print-at-home pattern on A4/legal/letter sized paper.

Take the copy shop file to a professional printer to print onto large sheets of paper.

Use the projector file to project the pattern straight onto your fabric meaning you don’t have to print at all! 

The pattern is created in layers which allows you to simply print the layers (sizes) you need.
