HAT:
Crochet tip: Finish each round with 1 sl st in first st on round.
Replace first dc on round with 1 ch and first tr on round with 3 ch. To avoid too many thread ends, work ends into piece.
Decreasing tip:
Dec 1 dc as follows: Work 1 dc, but wait with the pull-through, (= 2 sts on hook), work the next dc and now pull thread through all 3 sts on hook.
Dec 1 tr as follows: Work 1 tr, but wait with the last pull-through, (= 2 sts on hook), work the next tr and in the last pull-through pull thread through all 3 sts on hook.

Diamond: Work 3 ch with colour-1 (see below) and form a ring with 1 sl st.
Round 1 (colour-1): 6 dc in ring.
See Crochet tip!
Round 2 (colour-1): 2 dc in each dc = 12 dc.
Round 3 (colour-2): 2 tr in each dc = 24 tr.
