Crochet tension: 20 dc/tr in width crochet with hook size 3.5 mm and Safran = 10 cm
Crochet tips: First tr on round with tr is substituted by 3 ch and first dc on round with dc is substituted by 1 ch. Complete each round with 1 sl st in first sts of round.

Hat: Crochet 5 ch on crochet hook size 3.5 mm and create 1 ring with 1 sl st in first ch.
1st round: Crochet 8 dc around ring – read Crochet tips.
2nd round: Crochet 2 tr in each dc = 16 tr.
3rd round: *1 dc in first tr, 2 dc in next tr* repeat from *-* = 24 dc.
4th round: *1 tr in each of 2 first dc, 2 tr in in next dc* repeat from *-* = 32 tr.
5th round: *1 dc in each of 3 first tr, 2 dc in next tr* repeat from *-* = 40 dc.
Continue crocheting in the same way on every other round tr and dc, at the same time inc so there is 1 sts more between each time inc is done on each round until there is 96 tr on round (= 12 rounds in total). Piece measures approx 10 cm from middle. Now crochet 1 round dc at the same time inc 2 dc evenly = 98 dc. Then crochet 1 round tr and 1 round dc. Piece measures approx 12 cm from middle.
16th round: *1dc in dc, 3 ch, skip 2 dc, 1 tr in each of next 2 dc, 3 ch, skip 2 dc *, repeat from *-* until end of round and finish off with 1 sl st in first dc.
17th round: 3 ch (substitutes 1st tr), *3 ch, 1 dc mid between 2 tr, 3 ch, 1 tr before dc and 1 tr after dc *, repeat from *-*, finish off with 3 ch, 1 dc mid between 2 last sts, 3 ch, 1 tr before last dc, 1 sl st in 3rd ch at start of round.
18th round: *1 dc between 2 first tr, 3 ch, 1 tr before and 1 tr after next dc, 3 ch *, repeat from *-* and finish round with 1 sl st.
Repeat round 17 and 18 until piece measures 18 cm.
Crochet next round as follows: 3 dc in each ch loop and 1 dc between 2 tr, throughout round = 98 dc. Crochet 4 rounds with 1 dc in each sts. On last round inc 2 dc evenly = 100 dc.
Now crochet 2 rounds tr as follows:
1st round: *1 tr in each of 3 first dc, 2 tr in in next dc* repeat from *-* = 125 tr.
2nd round: *1 tr in each of 4 first tr, 2 tr in in next tr* repeat from *-* = 150 tr.
Crochet next round as follows: *1 dc in each of 5 first tr, 5 ch, skip 1 tr*, repeat from *-* and finish round with 1 sl st.
