ROUNDS WITH DC: Replace first dc at beg of every round with ch 3 and finish every round with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round.
ROUNDS WITH SC: Replace first sc at beg of every round with ch 1 and finish every round with 1 sl st in first ch from beg of round.
ROUND 1 (Safran): 1 sc in every dc.
ROUND 2 (Safran): ch 4, skip 1 sc, * 1 dc in next sc, ch 1, skip 1 sc *, repeat from *-* and finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round.
ROUND 3 (Cotton Viscose): 1 sc in every dc and 1 sc in every ch.
ROUND 4 (Safran): 1 dc in every sc.
ROUND 5 (Cotton Viscose): 1 dc in every dc.
ROUND 6 (Safran): 1 dc in every dc.
Repeat rounds 1 to 6.
Read US/UK above! First work the squares – they are gradually worked tog. Then work along the one side of squares and up to top (= the crown of the hat). Then work along the other side of squares and outwards (= the brim of the hat).

Ch 4 on hook size 3 mm / C with Safran and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch.
ROUND 1: ch 3 (= 1 dc), work 11 dc in ch-ring, finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round.
ROUND 2 (switch to Cotton Viscose): ch 2, 1 sc in next dc, ch 1 * 1 sc in next dc, ch 1 *, repeat from *-* the entire round and finish with 1 sl st in first ch from beg of round.
ROUND 3: ch 1, 1 sc in 2nd ch from previous round, * ch 4, 1 sc in next ch from previous round *, repeat from *-*, finish with 1 sl st in first sc from beg of round = 12 ch-spaces.
ROUND 4 (switch back to Safran): ch 2, 1 sc in first ch-space, * ch 4, 1 sc in next ch-space, ch 4, 1 sc in next ch-space, ch 8 (= corner), 1 sc in next ch-space *, repeat from *-* the entire round, but finish with 1 sl st in first sc from beg of round (instead of 1 sc in next ch-space). Fasten off.
Start with Cotton Viscose and work as SQUARE 1 from 1st to 3rd round but switch yarn type so that Cotton Viscose is used on 1st round and Safran on 2nd and 3rd round.
ROUND 4: Also see diagram M.2.
Work with Safran as follows: ch 2, 1 sc in first ch-space, ch 4, 1 sc in next ch-space, ch 4, 1 sc in next ch-space, ch 4, place the square WS against WS with SQUARE 1, work 1 sc in one of the large ch-spaces on SQUARE 1 (= corner), ch 4, 1 sc in next ch-space on SQUARE 2, * ch 2, 1 sc in next small ch-space on SQUARE 1, ch 2, 1 sc in next ch-space on SQUARE 2 *, repeat from *-* 1 more time, ch 4, 1 sc in next large ch-space on SQUARE 1 (= corner), ch 4, 1 sc in next ch-space on SQUARE 2. Then work around SQUARE 2 as follows: ** ch 4, 1 sc in next ch-space, ch 4, 1 sc in next ch-space, ch 8, 1 sc in next ch-space **, repeat from **-** 1 more time but finish with 1 sl st in first sc from beg of round. Fasten off.
Now work SQUARE 1 and SQUARE 2 alternately (while at the same time working them tog as described on round 4 on SQUARE 2) until a total of 8 squares have been worked. The last square is worked tog with both the next to last and the first square so that the squares form a circle.
CROWN OF HAT:
READ CROCHET INFO ABOVE. Work with Safran on hook size 3 mm / C along one side of the squares as follows: 5 dc in each of the large ch-spaces in the corners on the squares and 3 dc in each of the small ch-spaces = 16 dc per square and 128 dc in total. Then work PATTERN - see explanation above.
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures approx. 12 cm / 4¾'' (incl squares) – adjust so that next round is a round with only dc or sc – dec 16 sts evenly by skipping every 8th st = 112 sts. Repeat dec every other round 3 more times and then on every round 3 times (1 st less between dec for every dec round where 1 st is skipped, i.e next round with dec skip 7th st, and next time the 6th and so on - NOTE: On 2nd round in pattern, skip 2 sc instead of 1 sc when dec) = 16 sts remain. Finally work 1 round with sc and skip every other st = 8 sts. The piece now measures approx. 19-20 cm / 7½"-8" vertically. Cut the yarn and pull it through the 8 remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten.
BRIM OF HAT:
Work with Safran on hook size 3 mm / C on the other side of squares the same way as along the first side, i.e. 5 dc in each of the large ch-spaces and 3 dc in each of the small ch-spaces = 128 dc. The brim is only worked with Safran as follows:
ROUND 2: 1 sc in every dc but work 2 sc in every 8th dc (i.e. inc 16 sts) = 144 sc.
ROUND 3: 1 dc in every sc.
ROUND 4: 1 sc in every dc but work 2 sc in every 9th dc = 160 sc.
ROUND 5: 1 dc in every sc.
Continue working 1 round dc and 1 round sc alternately while at the same time inc 16 sts on every sc round until there are 192 sts on round.
Then continue with dc and sc on every other round (but without inc) – until brim measures approx. 8 cm / 3''. Fasten off.
