Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in American English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from inches to cm - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in American and British English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in British English, please click here.
Replace first hdc on row with ch 2, finish row with 1 hdc in 2nd ch from beg of previous row.

Replace first dc on round with ch 3 and finish round with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round.
Replace first sc on round with ch 1 and finish round with 1 sl st in ch from beg of round.

Work 1 dc, but wait with the last pull-through (= 2 sts on hook), work next dc, but when doing the last pull-through pull thread through all sts on hook = 1 dec dc.

Work 1 sc, but wait with the last pull-through, work next sc and pull thread through both sts on hook.

Crochet an edge first back and forth in rib-structure, then form a ring, pick up new sts round the ring and crochet the hat in the round towards the top.

Ch 14 with hook size 4 mm / G/6 with Alaska and work first row as follows: 1 hdc in 3rd ch from hook, 1 hdc in each of the next 11 ch = 13 hdc, turn piece. See CROCHET INFO-1. Continue with 1 hdc in each hdc but work each hdc in the back loop of st (i.e. not through the whole st) = rib-structure.
When piece measures 52-56 cm / 20½"-22" make 2 buttonholes as follows: work 3 hdc, ch 2, skip 2 sts, 3 hdc, ch 2, skip 2 sts, 1 hdc in each of the last 3 sts, turn piece. Work 1 hdc in each hdc and 2 hdc in each ch space = 13 hdc, cut and fasten thread.

Slip the edge tog to a ring with the 2 rows on the side with buttonholes sitting over the 2 rows the opposite side = buttonhole split. See CROCHET INFO-2. Beg by buttonhole split and crochet alternately 1 and 2 sc in each row all the way round NOTE: by buttonhole split crochet through both layers = approx 78-84 sc. Continue with 1 dc in each st, AT THE SAME TIME adjust no of sts to 80-88 dc by crochet 2 dc in 1 st with regular intervals.
After 4 rounds with dc (piece now measures approx 11 cm / 4 3/8'') dec 8 dc evenly, i.e. work every 9th and 10th dc tog in Size XS/S and every 10th and 11th dc tog in Size M/L – see above. Repeat the dec on every other round a total of 5 times and then on every round a total of 1-2 times = 32-32 dc left. Now work 2 rounds with sc, AT THE SAME TIME work 2 sc tog all the way round on both rounds = 8-8 sc left. Cut the thread, pull it through remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten. Hat measures approx 23-24 cm / 9"-9½''. Sew buttons to the edge.

Bonjour Je sais pas faire les côtes structuré,et je ne trouve pas dans les explications de point ni vidéos. Merci de votre aide

DROPS Design 09.03.2016 kl. 10:46:

Bonjour Patricia, les côtes structurées se réalisent en ne piquant qu'un seul brin de la maille du rang précédent, soit ici, on va piquer le crochet dans le brin arrière des mailles seulement et ce à chaque rang - la vidéo ci-dessous montre comment on pique soit sous les 2 brins, soit sous le brin arrière soit sous le brin avant. Bon crochet!

Hola. Necesito ayuda. No entiendo como debo empezar el gorro. Tengo hecha la orilla pero no entiendo cuando dice: empezar por la abertura del ojal y tejer 1y2p.b en cada vuelta. Me pueden ayudar por favor. Gracias

DROPS Design 21.11.2015 kl. 18:16:

Hola Alexia. El gorro se comienza justo encima de los ojales. En la foto puedes ver bien el principio/final de la vta. La primera vta la trabajamos ALTERNANDO 1 p.b. /2 p.b. en cada fila de la orilla (es decir: en el primer pt trabajamos 1 p.b., en el sig pt trabajamos 2 p.b., etc. )

Charlotte 24.06.2015 - 22:42:

Bonjour, j'essaie de crocheter ce modèle mais je suis bloquée car je ne comprend pas la phrase suivante : Répéter ces diminutions 5 fois au total tous les 2 tours puis 1-2 fois au total tous les tours  ?? Merci pour votre aide :)

DROPS Design 25.06.2015 kl. 10:29:

Bonjour Charlotte, vous diminuez encore 8 B tous les 2 rangs encore 4 fois, puis 1-2 fois tous les tours, c'est-à-dire diminuez ensuite en crochetant (7-8 B, 2 B écoulées ens), puis (6-7 B, 2 B écoulées ens), il reste 32 B. Bon crochet!

Ciao, potete spiegarmi meglio la struttura punto coste? Sui vari tutorial in internet questa si fa solo con la maglia alta puntando l'uncinetto nel centro della maglia sottostante, non sulla parte alta come sembra spiegato nel modello. grazie

DROPS Design 28.12.2014 kl. 19:59:

Buonsera Chiara. Per creare il punto a coste, deve puntare l'uncinetto solo nel filo posteriore della m. Trova la spiegazione nel seguente video, dal minuto 3:10 in avanti. Buon lavoro!

This is so confusing - "crochet Info-1 and 2" Crochet DC TOG - How do I incorporate it into the pattern? Does it come before the "SEE CROCHET INFO-1" or after? Is it an alternate method? Why didn't they just put this into the pattern? I love this hat. have had the pattern for 2 years but everytime I try to make it, I end up crying in frustration. Is there a better, clearer version of this pattern?

DROPS Design 13.02.2014 kl. 00:44:

The sections above the pattern is general info. In the pattern text it tells you when to look at the info, like when you work hdc on the edge, then it tells how to turn your rows in info 1, and later when you start working in the round and you will work rounds with sc and dc's then it tells you to read info 2 to know how to do this.

Så man ender opp med totalt 16 omganger etter vrangborden? På bildet ser det ikke ut som mer enn 12 omganger.. Nå har jeg rekket opp alt, og prøver igjen, denne gangen med felling på annenhver omgang fra vrangborden. Takk for raske tilbakemeldinger :) God natt!

DROPS Design 06.02.2014 kl. 14:10:

Hej Ane. Ja, det er korrekt. God fornöjelse med luen :-)

Ane 05.02.2014 - 23:51:

Takk for svar på sent. Dette har jeg virkelig problemer med å forstå, beklager. Skjønner hva du skriver, men inkluderer de 12 omgangene ALT som er heklet fra vrangborden? "Når det er heklet 4 omg med st (arb måler nå ca 11 cm) felles det 8 st jevnt fordelt" Forstår det som at man skal hekle 4 omganger først UTEN felling, og SÅ starte fellingen?

DROPS Design 06.02.2014 kl. 00:08:

Hej igen, nej det inkluderar ikke allt. Först hekler du 4 omg uten å felle. Dessa 4 omg plus kanten måler i allt 11 cm. Så starter du å felle, og det felles fördelt över 12 omg. Så luen kommer måle 11 cm + 12 omg. Hoppas det hjälper :)

Ane 05.02.2014 - 17:49:

Det står 'Gjenta fellingen på hver 2.omg totalt 5 ganger og...' Skal det felles bare i annenhver omgang i 5 omganger? Jeg får det heller ikke til å stemme. Da ender man ikke opp med 32 masker. Det må være felling i hver av de 5 omganger, kan ikke skjønne annet.

DROPS Design 05.02.2014 kl. 22:49:

Du feller på annenhver omg 5 ggr, så det blir att du hekler 1 omg med felling, 1 omg uten felling, 1 omg med felling, en uten osv. Alltså hekles totalt 10 omg. Deretter 1-2 omg i tillegg med fellinger. Så tot 1-12 omg medan det felles.

Victoria 05.02.2014 - 10:49:

Ane; Tror det må være en feil i oppskriften. At du skal gjenta fellingen på HVER omg totalt 5 ganger, ikke hver 2. omg. som står i oppskriften. Hva sier Drops?

DROPS Design 05.02.2014 kl. 16:31:

Hei Victoria. Opskriften skulle vaere korrekt. Hvorfor mener du det er feil?

Ane 05.02.2014 - 00:55:

Kan noen forklare meg dette: "Gjenta fellingen på hver 2.omg totalt 5 ganger og deretter på hver omg totalt 1-2 ganger = 32-32 st tilbake." Deretter felle på totalt én omgang? Har nå heklet 10 omganger 'oppå' vrangborden, men får ikke helt avslutta her..

DROPS Design 05.02.2014 kl. 10:54:

Hei Ane. Efter 4 omg med st har du fellet 8 st jevnt fordelt. Du skal derefter gjentage denne felling i hver 2. omg totalt 5 gange, og derefter 1 eller 2 gange i hver omgang (dvs, bare 1 gang i str XS/S eller 2 gange i str M/L). Saa har du 32 st tilbage paa raden.
