New Bucket Hat

Best Blog Tips
This hat was my mom's idea, and it has grown legs and has run all over the internet! This combination of colors was her choice. I think it turned out pretty really! The contrast of green on green is really attractive. It is also very easy to make, so I decided once again to share it with you all. This is an ideal charity and gift project as well. Enjoy!
 Materials-
Red Heart worsted weight yarn Real Teal (about half of skein)
Red Heart worsted weight yarn Hunter Green(about half a skein)
Cochet hook size H
Green button of your choice
Blunt needle to sew yarn
Scissors
 Size- 22" wide x 9 1/2 " long

 Lower Part of Hat- 
 With Hunter and H hook Ch 19.
Row 1- 1 hdc in third ch from hook and in each ch across. (18 hdc) Ch 2, turn.
Row 2- 1 hdc in each hdc across. (18 hdc) Ch 2, turn.
Rows 3 to 49- 1 hdc in each hdc across. (18 hdc) Ch 2, turn.
Row 50- 1 hdc in each hdc across. (18 hdc) Fasten off Black, leaving long tail to sew with.
On the wrong side, fold the piece in half. Thread a blunt needle and sew the piece into a tube. Fasten off Hunter, weave in tails. We will now work at the top of the hat.

 Crown of Hat-
Rnd 1- Join Real Teal. Work 63 sc around the edge of the tube you formed with the Black rows.
 Rnd 2- Ch 2, 1 hdc in each of next 62 sc.
