CROCHET INFO:
ROUNDS WITH DC: Replace first dc at beg of every round with ch 3 and finish every round with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round.

ROUNDS WITH SC: Replace first sc at beg of every round with ch 1 and finish every round with 1 sl st in first ch from beg of round.

PATTERN:
ROUND 1 (Safran): 1 sc in every dc.
ROUND 2 (Safran): ch 4, skip 1 sc, * 1 dc in next sc, ch 1, skip 1 sc *, repeat from *-* and finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round.
ROUND 3 (Cotton Viscose): 1 sc in every dc and 1 sc in every ch.
ROUND 4 (Safran): 1 dc in every sc.
ROUND 5 (Cotton Viscose): 1 dc in every dc.
ROUND 6 (Safran): 1 dc in every dc.
Repeat rounds 1 to 6.
--------------------------------------------------------

HAT:
Read US/UK above! First work the squares – they are gradually worked tog. Then work along the one side of squares and up to top (= the crown of the hat). Then work along the other side of squares and outwards (= the brim of the hat).

SQUARE 1:
Also see diagram M.1.
Ch 4 on hook size 3 mm / C with Safran and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch.
ROUND 1: ch 3 (= 1 dc), work 11 dc in ch-ring, finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round.
ROUND 2 (switch to Cotton Viscose): ch 2, 1 sc in next dc, ch 1 * 1 sc in next dc, ch 1 *, repeat from *-* the entire round and finish with 1 sl st in first ch from beg of round.
ROUND 3: ch 1, 1 sc in 2nd ch from previous round, * ch 4, 1 sc in next ch from previous round *, repeat from *-*, finish with 1 sl st in first sc from beg of round = 12 ch-spaces.
ROUND 4 (switch back to Safran): ch 2, 1 sc in first ch-space, * ch 4, 1 sc in next ch-space, ch 4, 1 sc in next ch-space, ch 8 (= corner), 1 sc in next ch-space *, repeat from *-* the entire round, but finish with 1 sl st in first sc from beg of round (instead of 1 sc in next ch-space). Fasten off.

SQUARE 2:
Start with Cotton Viscose and work as SQUARE 1 from 1st to 3rd round but switch yarn type so that Cotton Viscose is used on 1st round and Safran on 2nd and 3rd round.
ROUND 4: Also see diagram M.2.
Work with Safran as follows: ch 2, 1 sc in first ch-space, ch 4, 1 sc in next ch-space, ch 4, 1 sc in next ch-space, ch 4, place the square WS against WS with SQUARE 1, work 1 sc in one of the large ch-spaces on SQUARE 1 (= corner), ch 4, 1 sc in next ch-space on SQUARE 2, * ch 2, 1 sc in next small ch-space on SQUARE 1, ch 2, 1 sc in next ch-space on SQUARE 2 *, repeat from *-* 1 more time, ch 4, 1 sc in next large ch-space on SQUARE 1 (= corner), ch 4, 1 sc in next ch-space on SQUARE 2. Then work around SQUARE 2 as follows: ** ch 4, 1 sc in next ch-space, ch 4, 1 sc in next ch-space, ch 8, 1 sc in next ch-space **, repeat from **-** 1 more time but finish with 1 sl st in first sc from beg of round. Fasten off.

Now work SQUARE 1 and SQUARE 2 alternately (while at the same time working them tog as described on round 4 on SQUARE 2) until a total of 8 squares have been worked. The last square is worked tog with both the next to last and the first square so that the squares form a circle.

CROWN OF HAT:
READ CROCHET INFO ABOVE. Work with Safran on hook size 3 mm / C along one side of the squares as follows: 5 dc in each of the large ch-spaces in the corners on the squares and 3 dc in each of the small ch-spaces = 16 dc per square and 128 dc in total. Then work PATTERN - see explanation above.
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures approx. 12 cm / 4¾'' (incl squares) – adjust so that next round is a round with only dc or sc – dec 16 sts evenly by skipping every 8th st = 112 sts. Repeat dec every other round 3 more times and then on every round 3 times (1 st less between dec for every dec round where 1 st is skipped, i.e next round with dec skip 7th st, and next time the 6th and so on - NOTE: On 2nd round in pattern, skip 2 sc instead of 1 sc when dec) = 16 sts remain. Finally work 1 round with sc and skip every other st = 8 sts. The piece now measures approx. 19-20 cm / 7½"-8" vertically. Cut the yarn and pull it through the 8 remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten.

BRIM OF HAT:
Work with Safran on hook size 3 mm / C on the other side of squares the same way as along the first side, i.e. 5 dc in each of the large ch-spaces and 3 dc in each of the small ch-spaces = 128 dc. The brim is only worked with Safran as follows:
ROUND 2: 1 sc in every dc but work 2 sc in every 8th dc (i.e. inc 16 sts) = 144 sc.
ROUND 3: 1 dc in every sc.
ROUND 4: 1 sc in every dc but work 2 sc in every 9th dc = 160 sc.
ROUND 5: 1 dc in every sc.
Continue working 1 round dc and 1 round sc alternately while at the same time inc 16 sts on every sc round until there are 192 sts on round.
Then continue with dc and sc on every other round (but without inc) – until brim measures approx. 8 cm / 3''. Fasten off.

Both the yarn and pattern are lovely to work with, however, now that I am almost done (measured and counted frequently) I have some size issues, so want to clarify a few sections. Crown: dec 16 sts evenly by skipping every 8th stitch - am I literally skipping the 8th stitch or is is a 2tog decrease. My brim was not as illustrated, it is completely flopped downward and I cannot see what I have done wrong.

DROPS Design 14.08.2015 kl. 10:06:

Dear Dianne, you have to skip litterally every 8th st to dec 16 sts evenly. Remember to check and keep your gauge (24 sts x 16 rows in pattern) = 10 x 10 cm. Happy crocheting!

Julia 13.07.2015 - 18:38:

Please explain what is required to obtain the necessary tension/ gauge for this pattern - 24sts x 16 rows (confused by this part of the instructions). Thank you. Julia

DROPS Design 27.07.2015 kl. 11:21:

Dear Julia, work the 6 rows in pattern (see at the beg of the pattern) over 24 sts for 16 rows, this should measure 10 x 10 cm (4" x 4"). Happy crocheting!

Mariangeles 22.06.2015 - 15:56:

Cuál es el truco para que el ala del sombrero tenga forma? y que además se quede levantada?

DROPS Design 24.06.2015 kl. 10:27:

Hola Mariangeles, puedes trabajar los pts del ala con más tensión y usar laca de pelo para darle un poco de forma.

Jette 15.06.2015 - 15:30:

Hvis man skal hækle 8 firkanter af 6 cm, kan omkredsen på hatten kun blive 48 cm , det er da til et meget lille hovede. Er det en fejl ? Det ville passe mere til en voksen hvis de skulle være 7 cm . Lidt surt når man har hæklet dem.

DROPS Design 16.06.2015 kl. 15:48:

Hej Jette. Hatten skal sidde lidt stramt for ikke at falde af, saa derfor er omkredsen altid mindre end hovedet selv - og garnet giver sig ogsaa. Men er den for lille til dig, saa kan du tilpasse saa det passer dig bedre.

Renate Grohmann 15.08.2012 - 19:54:

Der Hut ist wunderschön. Wie hält die Form. Mit was wird der Hut gestärkt? Dankeschön für Ihren Tipp.

Wil Jonker 03.06.2012 - 12:03:

Bij het minderen van een vaste, gaat het precies hetzelfde, maar dan meteen door drie lussen. Mooier resultaat !

Wil Jonker 03.06.2012 - 12:00:

Het valt mij op, dat jullie altijd met haken gaatjes maken met minderen. Ik heb geleerd om b.v. met een stokje een omslag om de haaknaald, dan in de steek steken en een lus ophalen en meteen in de volgende steek steken en een lus ophalen en dan omslaan en niet door twee, maar door drie halen en dan gewoon weer door twee. Zo heb je een mindering gemaakt zonder een lusje van de vorige toer over te slaan.

DROPS Design 04.06.2012 kl. 13:40:

Bedankt voor de tip. Het is natuurlijk altijd mogelijk om te haken of breien op de manier dat men zelf het prettigst of mooist vindt.

ISABELLA 17.05.2012 - 12:36:

Scusate l'ignoranza, ma come inizia questo lavoro? grazie mille!

DROPS Design 18.05.2012 kl. 14:11:

Deve prima lavorare tutti i quadrati, poi vengono messi insieme (ved. diag M.2) Se non è chiaro ci faccia ancora sapere!!

Gerdien 29.03.2012 - 22:30:

De stekenverhouding klopt wel, ik heb niet met safran gehaakt. Ik weet niet precies wat dan wel, katoen in ieder geval. Maar nu de rand dus zo slap is, hebben jullie tips om hem te verstevigen? Alvast bedankt!

DROPS Design 02.04.2012 kl. 10:39:

Nee, niet echt. Misschien kunt u de rand opnieuw haken met een kleinere nld en dan met meer vasten om steviger te maken. Anders weet ik het niet. Als u met een andere garen breit of haakt, dan kunt u ook een andere vorm/structuur verwachten. Probeer te vragen bij de winkel waar u het garen heeft gekocht.

Gerdien 25.03.2012 - 22:12:

Erg leuk patroon, mijn hoedje is vrijwel af. Echter, de rand is zo slap dat deze voor mijn ogen hangt. Hoe zou ik deze het beste kunnen verstevigen?

DROPS Design 27.03.2012 kl. 14:33:

Hoi Gerdien. Klopt de haaktstekenverhouding en je haakt met Safran?
