Crocheted DROPS hat in Muskat
Sizes: S/M - M/L
Head measurements: 55 - 57 cm.
Materials: DROPS Muskat from Garnstudio
200-200 g colour no 61, pale beige
DROPS Crochet hook size 3 mm
Tension: 21 dc x 24 rows = 10 x 10 cm on needle size 3 mm. Remember hook size is only a guide!
Lobster st: Crochet on RS dc the opposite way, i.e. from left to right without turning piece. Crochet 1 st in every dc from previous round.
Hat: Crochet 4 ch. Form them as a ring with 1 slip st. Crochet 1 dc. Crochet 6 dc in the ring, 1 ch.
1st round: Crochet 2 dc in every st = 12 dc, insert 1 marker thread at the beginning of the round.
2nd round: * 1 dc in the first st, 2 dc in the next st *, repeat from *-* to end of round = 18 dc.
3rd round: * 1 dc in the first 2 sts, 2 dc in next st *, repeat from *-* to end of round = 24 dc.
4th round: * 1 dc in the first 3 sts, 2 dc in the next st *, repeat from *-* to end of round = 30 dc.
5th round: * 1 dc in the first 4 sts, 2 dc in the next st *, repeat from *-* to end of round = 36 dc.
Continue to inc 6 dc per round – i.e. crochet 1 dc more between each inc until piece measures 9.5-10.5 cm from middle (circumference increases with approx. 2 cm every inc round – crochet until circumference = approx. 55-57 cm). Continue with dc without inc until piece measures approx.19-20 cm from middle. On the next round, crochet following increase: * 2 dc, crochet 2 dc in next st *, repeat from *-* to end of round. Then work 22 rounds without inc = hat brim. Finally, work 1 round with lobster st – see description above – round the outermost row of dc. Cut thread and fasten.
Assembly: Make a small double edge (=rulorkant) at top of hat as follows: where the inc at top of brim finishes make a fold on RS, sew back st through 2 layers inside 2 rounds dc on each side, i.e. there are 4 rounds dc in rulorkant. Fold the "hat brim" (i.e. the last 22 rounds) double to RS. Sew back st inside 2 rounds of dc outermost in the double edge in the same way as the rulorkant at top of hat.
