“GRETA BUCKET HAT” – CROCHET PATTERN BY HILARIA FINA
Greta Garbo succeeded in the film world during first half of the twentieth century. Her cold beauty and incredible talent were captured for eternity in a short but prolific professional career full of great success until she retired at the age of 37 and disappear from the public scene. The strict caution of her intimacy and private life fed her legend, as well as the speculations about her romances and ambiguous sexuality: “my life has been a journey of hiding places, back doors, secret elevators and all the possible ways to go unnoticed in order of not to be disturbed by anyone”.

STITCHES AND TECHNIQUES USED
Wrap yarn around two fingers, leaving 7cm long tail. Insert hook right to left under the two rows and pick the strand up (the one that leads to the skein), pulling the yarn back under the two rows, YO and pull through the loop (do not count as first stitch). Keep working the following stitches into the ring. Remove the ring from your fingers and pull the tail end to tight the ring.
SINGLE CROCHET (abbrev. sc)
Insert hook in stitch, YO and pull up loop (2 loops on hook), YO again and pull through both loops on hook.
INCREASE (abbrev. inc)
To work an extra stitch, you simply need to work into the same stitch more than once. Work one stitch as normal. Insert hook into same stitch you’ve just worked and complete another st.
INVISIBLE FASTEN OFF
Cut yarn, pull the yarn tail through the last stitch completely and thread yarn tail onto yarn/tapestry needle. Skip one stitch then insert needle into the next stitch under booth loops of the second stitch of the last round. Next, insert needle back into the same stitch that the yarn tail is coming from but into the back loop only. This creates a closing stitch. Weave tail into wrong side before trimming.

LEVEL 2 – EASY
If you are looking for a relaxing project, this is what you want. These patterns are very repetitive. They use basic stitches and easy procedures.
- This pattern is written in US terminology.
- Hat is worked in one piece, top-down and in spiral rounds.
- When you crochet spiral rounds, you start with a magic ring and you will go on work in a continuos spiral. This means, you continue to crochet directly into the first stitch of the previous round to star the next round.
- You should mark the first stitch of the round to keep track of where the round begins and move the marker up each round as you work.
