Beg every dc round with ch 3 instead of 1 dc. Finish every round with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round.

1st round: ch 4 and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch. Work 10-10-10-12-12 dc in ch-ring. Read crochet info above!
2nd round: * 1 dc in first dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* = 15-15-15-18-18 dc.
3rd round: * 1 dc in first dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* = 22-22-22-27-27 dc.
4th round: * 1 dc in first dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* = 33-33-33-40-40 dc.

Change color at the end of round so that the new color starts with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round.

Start with light beige mix. Work 6 rounds in light beige mix, then 2 rounds with tan, 3 rounds with off white, 2 rounds with medium gray, 3 rounds with light gray.

Work first st - but wait with last pull through - work next st and on last pull through, pull yarn though all sts on hook.

The piece is worked top down. Work on hook size 7mm/K/10½ and off white and work CIRCLE - see explanation above. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE! Read CROCHET INFO!
When 4th round have been worked, work next round as follows: Work dc in every dc but inc 6-8-10-5-8 dc evenly = 39-41-43-45-48 dc. Continue to work 1 dc in every dc until piece measures approx. 16-17-18-19-20 cm / 6 1/4"-6 3/4"-7"-7½"-8". Read COLOR CHANGE TIP. Work 3 rounds with beige.
Fasten off.
Make a large pompom using both colors and fasten it at the top of the hat.

Loosely ch 56 on hook size 8 mm / L/11 with light beige mix and form a ring with 1 sl st in 1st ch. Work STRIPE COLORS - see explanation above.
1ST ROUND: ch 3, work 1 dc in every ch = 56 dc, finish with 1 sl st in first dc.
Continue the rounds like this until 5 rounds have been worked. On 6th round, dec 4 sts evenly by working every 13th and 14th st tog the entire round - see explanation above = 52 dc.
Continue with stripes. After last stripe, the neck warmer measures approx. 26 cm / 10 1/4'' vertically. Fasten off.

Hi, does the chain 3 at the beginning of each round count as a dc? So chain 3, 11 dc. Or is it chain 3, 12 dc?

DROPS Design 28.08.2018 kl. 19:12:

Dear Kirsten. the 3 chain stitches substitute the first dc. Therefore, you work 3 ch and 11 dc.

Annika 22.11.2017 - 14:11:

Hej! Jag förstår inte vad ni menar med 10-10-10-12-12 stolpar? Jag ska väl ändå inte göra 54 stolpar på andra varvet?

DROPS Design 22.11.2017 kl. 14:26:

Hej Annika, det är antalet i de olika storlekarna. Du måste välja en storlek och följa den. Vi skriver så i hela mönstret och i alla mönster. Lycka till!

Bonjour, Il y a une erreur dans le nombre de pelotes indiqué : avec la laine Eskimo, on fait environ 4,5 tours de cet ouvrage avec 1 pelote de 50g. Donc pour le beige clair mix, il faut 2 pelotes de 50g (soit 100g) pour faire les 6 rangs.

Laure Mariet 23.01.2016 - 14:46:

Re, (dernière question) J'ai un doute concernant la hauteur du bonnet. D'après les explications, je dois crocheter 19cm de hauteur en écru et 3 tours (soit 6cm) en beige, soit un total de 25cm de hauteur. Cela n'est-il pas un peu court ? D'habitude un bonnet Femme mesure environ 28cm de hauteur. Donc je suis étonnée. Qu'en est-il s'il vous plait ? Encore merci... :)

DROPS Design 25.01.2016 kl. 11:17:

Bonjour Mme Mariet, tout dépend de la forme et du type du bonnet, n'hésitez pas à ajustez à la longueur qui vous convient. Bon crochet!

Laure Mariet 23.01.2016 - 14:44:

Re-bonjour (2nde question) Je ne comprends pas ce qu'il faut faire pour les rangs 6 et plus : est-ce qu'il faut continuer à faire des augmentations de 5 brides par rang ? Ou bien à partir du 6ème rang il faut crocheter 1 bride dans 1 bride (donc on arrête les augmentations) ? D'avance merci de votre réponse

DROPS Design 25.01.2016 kl. 11:14:

Bonjour Mme Mariet, quand vous avez 45 B (taille femme), continuez avec 1 B dans chaque B - plus d'augmentations jusqu'à 19 cm de hauteur totale. Bon crochet!

Laure Mariet 23.01.2016 - 14:42:

Bonjour, Je souhaite réaliser ce bonnet mais je ne comprends pas les explications après le rg 4 sachant que je réalise ce bonnet pour une taille Femme (58 cm de tour de tête). Au 5ème rg, j'ai compris que je dois réaliser 5 augmentations réparties également. Mais où faut-il placer ces augmentations exactement ? Après combien de bride je place les augmentations ? D'avance merci, Laure

DROPS Design 25.01.2016 kl. 11:14:

Bonjour Mme Mariet, cliquez ici pour savoir comment répartir les augmentations. Bon crochet!

Hei! jeg er nybegynner på hekling, og jeg lurer på hva det vil si å hekle 10-10-10-12-12 st om ringen?

DROPS Design 11.03.2015 kl. 15:39:

Hei Johanne. Du har heklet en ring med 4 l, og saa hekler du i neste omg 10 eller 12 st om denne ring (afhaengig af hvilken str du laver). God fornöjelse.

Barbara 12.01.2015 - 17:59:

I am from the United States...I am crocheting the hat and I have a question where it says after the 4th round, which I have completed, it says to Work tr in every tr but inc 6-8-10-5-8 tr evenly = 39-41-43-45-48 tr. I know that in English tr, is a dc...I am confused as to the 6-8-10-5-8 tr evenly...etc...I am making a women's hat...I know the 45 is the # of stiches after the round..but what about the 6-8-10-5-8... Thank you

DROPS Design 12.01.2015 kl. 18:29:

Dear Barbara, if you are working 4th size (45 dc at the end of 5th round), you will inc 5 dc evenly - remember you can change language into US-English clicking on the arrow at the bottom of picture, so that you get US-English terminology. Happy crocheting!

Mena 14.11.2014 - 10:41:

Mi scusi ma per lo scaldacollo non mi trovo al 4° giro. Le maglie alte per adulto non dovrebbero essere 39 invece di 40

DROPS Design 14.11.2014 kl. 11:15:

Buongiorno Mena. Nel berretto, nel corso del quarto giro, nelle taglie adulto, vengono aumentate 13 m. Il quarto giro viene lavorato in questo modo: * 1 m.a, 2 m.a nella m successiva * , per 13 volte (quindi fino alla 26a m del giro precedente) + 1 m.a (la 27a m del giro precedente). In tutto 40 m. Buon lavoro!

Det syftar på olika storlekar.
