Tension: 7 tr using 2 threads Puddel and crochet hook 10mm = width 10cm.
8 dc using 1 thread Eskimo and crochet hook 6mm = width 10cm

Crochet info: at the beginning of each round, replace 1 tr/dc with 3/1 ch and finish each round with a sl st in 3rd/1st ch from beginning of round.

Decreasing crochet sts: crochet together 2 st to 1 st. Crochet 1 tr, but wait with the last “pull through” leaving 3 loops on your hook. Crochet another tr, but on the last “pull through” - pull the yarn through all loops = 1 st bound off.

Crochet 4 ch using crochet hook 10mm and 2 threads Puddel. Form a ring with a sl st and crochet as follows:
1st round: crochet 13 tr in the ring (see Crochet info above)
2nd round: crochet 2 tr in each tr = 26
3rd round: *1 tr in first tr, 2 tr in next tr*, repeat from *-* until end of round = 39 tc
4th round: 1 tr in each tr = 39 tr
5th round: *1 tc in first and second tr, 2 tc in next tr*, repeat from * to * until end of round = 52 tr
6th round: 1 tr in each tr but inc. 3 tr evenly on round (2 tr in 1) = 55 tr
7th round: *3 tr, crochet next 2 tr together (see decreasing above)*, repeat from *-* = 44 tr.
8th round: Change to hook 6mm and Eskimo. Crochet 4 rounds dc, at the same time dec. no of st to 40 evenly on first row – dec dc by skipping 1 tr from previous row.

Spirals: Crochet 3 spirals, which are sewn to top of hat.
1 spiral = crochet with hook 6mm and Eskimo as follows:
1st row: 10 ch, turn
2nd row: 3 dc in each ch, cut thread.
Crochet another 2 spirals, one with 14 ch and one with 18 ch. Attach to top of hat.
