NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
BASQUE HAT:
Crochet Tension: 14 tr x 8.5 rows with 1 thread of each quality with crochet hook size 5 mm = 10 x 10 cm.
Crochet info: Replace the first tr at the beg of tr-rows with 3 ch. Finish the row with 1 tr in the 3rd ch from beg of previous row. Replace the first dc at the beg of dc-rows with 1 ch. Finish the row with 1 sl st in ch from beg of previous row. Only crochet through the back loop of dc (not through the whole dc).
Decreasing dc:
Crochet 2 dc tog to 1 dc as follows: Crochet 1 dc but wait with the last yo and pull through (= 2 sts on hook), crochet next dc and pull thread through all 3 sts on hook – 2 dc is now 1 dc.

Crochet 4 ch with crochet hook size 5 mm and 1 thread of each quality and form a ring with a sl st.
1st round: 8 tr in ring – read Crochet info!
2nd round: 2 tr in each tr = 16 tr
3rd round: *1 tr in first tr, 2 tr in next tr*, repeat from *-* = 24 tr
4th round: *1 tr in each of the first 2 tr, 2 tr in next tr*, repeat from *-* = 32 tr
5th round: *1 tr in each of the first 3 tr, 2 tr in next tr*, repeat from *-* = 40 tr
6th round: *1 tr in each of the first 4 tr, 2 tr in next tr*, repeat from *-* = 48 tr
7th round: *1 tr in each of the first 5 tr, 2 tr in next tr*, repeat from *-* = 56 tr
8th – 13th round: crochet as before with 1 more st between each inc (i.e. inc 8 tr per round) = 104 tr on 13th round. Piece measures approx 30 cm.
14th – 18th round: 1 tr in each tr = 104 tr
Now continue with dc’s – read Crochet info!
19th round: *6 dc, crochet tog the 7th and 8th dc (see above)*, repeat from *-* = 91 dc
20th round: 1 dc in each dc
21st round: *5 dc, crochet tog the 6th and 7th dc*, repeat from *-* = 78 dc
Now crochet 1 dc in each dc until the dc-border measures approx 5 cm. Cut the thread and sew tight.
Pompon: Make a pompon in Vivaldi with a diameter of approx 5 cm and attach to the top of the Basque hat. For pompon instructions please see Garnstudio’s Technique Pages in the School of Handcraft on the pattern front page.

MITTENS:
Crochet Tension: 14 tr x 8.5 rows with 1 thread of each quality with crochet hook size 5 mm = 10 x 10 cm.
Crochet info: Crochet round in dc. Only crochet through the back loop of the dc (not through the whole dc).
Decreasing dc:
Crochet 2 dc tog to 1 dc as follows: Crochet 1 dc but wait with the last yo and pull through (= 2 sts on hook), crochet next dc and pull thread through all 3 sts on hook – 2 dc is now 1 dc.

Loosely crochet 25-28-31 ch with crochet hook size 5 and 1 thread of each quality – ch-chain measures approx 18-20-22 cm, this is the mitten’s circumference. Form a ring with 1 sl st. Crochet 1 dc in each ch = 25-28-31 dc and continue round with 1 dc in each dc. When piece measures 13-14-15 cm make an opening for the thumb by crocheting 5-5-6 loose ch at the beg of round, skip the next 5-5-6 dc and continue round (the opening will be approx 4 cm wide, make the opening smaller/bigger by crocheting less/more ch and skip the equivalent no of dc). On next round crochet 1 dc in each of the 5-5-6 ch for thumb opening = 25-28-31 dc. Continue round until piece measures 22-24-26 cm (or desired length, 2 cm left until finished measurements). Now dec by crocheting all dc’s tog 2 by 2 – read Decreasing dc = 13-14-16 dc. Crochet 1 round without dec and dec again on next round = 7-7-8 dc. Crochet 1 more round with dec = 4-4-4 ch. Cut the thread and pull it through remaining sts and sew tight.
Thumb: Crochet 10-10-12 dc round the opening for thumb (1 dc in each of the skipped dc and 1 dc in each of the 5-5-6 ch). Crochet dc round as before. When thumb measures approx 5-5-6 cm crochet 1 round crocheting all dc’s tog 2 by 2 = 5-5-6 dc.Cut the thread and pull through remaining sts, sew tight.

Bonjour, Je souhaite faire ce beret avec la laine Eskimo. Est-ce possible ? Avez-vous quelques conseils ( nombre de mailles , rangs , crochet adapté au modèle ? ) Merci

DROPS Design 28.01.2019 kl. 07:46:

Bonjour Mme Van Den Doorn, pour ce beret vous avez besoin du groupe de fils D (A+C=D), Eskimo est du grupe E. Cela exigera plus de modifications. Je vous conseille de demander dans le magasin ou vous achetez la laine DROPS. Bon travail!

Plet 22.11.2013 - 11:14:

Merci c'est bien ce que je pensais merci encore

Marieco 21.11.2013 - 01:27:

Bonjour, est ce qu'il n'y a pas une erreur pour écouler les mailles serrés, il y a une petite astérix , et je trouve que pour des mailles serrées il y a beaucoup de jetés etc merci de votre réponse cordialement MC

DROPS Design 21.11.2013 kl. 08:53:

Bonjour Marieo, pour diminuer 1 ms, procédez comme dans la vidéo ci-dessous. Bon crochet!

W Reijnoudt 06.11.2013 - 21:50:

In het patroon bij info haken staat dat het 1e stokje vervangen moet worden door een losse. Ik neem aan dat dit moet zijn: 3 lossen (vervanging van een stokje)?

DROPS Design 07.11.2013 kl. 14:29:

Hoi. Je hebt gelijk - de 3 miste hier. Ik heb het toegevoegd. Bedankt.

TROIS 24.10.2013 - 18:47:

Bonjour, j'ai fait l'échantillon 2 fois, crochet N° 5 et 4,5, et je ne trouve pas les mêmes mesures (mêmes laines)en nombres de rang je suis au max à 6 et 6,5 rangs, j'ai aussi regardé la vidéo, et le point qui est montré est la bride et non la double bride qui est préconisé. il y aurait il une erreur ?? j'aimerai tant faire ce beret. merci pour votre aide. Nathalie

DROPS Design 24.10.2013 kl. 21:27:

Bonjour Mme Trois, ce modèle contenait différentes erreurs et il a été ré-écrit - une nouvelle impression est recommandée. Le béret se commence effectivement en brides avec une bordure de ms. L'échantillon est de 14 brides x 8.5 rangs = 10 x 10 cm. Si vous n'avez pas le bon nombre de rangs en hauteur, essayez avec un crochet plus petit/plus gros. Bon crochet!
