DROPS Crochet hook size 4 mm.

Crochet tension: approx. 13 double crochets in width and 12 rows in height with hook size 4 mm = 10 x 10 cm. Remember hook size is only a guide! 

Hat: The hat is worked in black with hook size 4 mm. Work 4 chain stitches and form them into a ring with 1 slip stitch in first chain stitch. Begin all rounds with 1 chain stitch which replaces the first double crochet and finish all rounds with 1 slip stitch. Work 6 double crochets around the ring. Then work 2 double crochets in each double crochet = 12 double crochets. The next round is worked as follows: * 2 double crochets in first double crochet, 1 double crochet in next double crochet *, repeat from *-* to end of round = 6 increases = 18 double crochets. Then work the next round as follows: * 2 double crochets in first double crochet, 2 double crochets *, repeat from *-* to end of round. Now increase in this way every round, but add 1 double crochet between each time you work 2 double crochets in 1 double crochet. (The next round will be 2 double crochets in the first stitch, 3 double crochets, the next will be 2 double crochets in the first stitch, 4 double crochets etc.) Continue increasing until piece measures 5.5-6-6 (6.5-6.5-7) cm from the middle. Then increase every 2nd round until piece measures 11-12-13 (13-14-14) cm from the middle (= approx. 13 to 18 rounds). 
On the next round decrease /increase to 54-60-60 (66-66-72) double crochets evenly on round.

Round 1: * 2 double crochets, 2 double crochets in next double crochet *. Repeat from *-* to end of round.
