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

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

ROUND 5 (Cotton Viscose): 1 tr in every tr.
ROUND 6 (Safran): 1 tr in every tr.
Repeat rounds 1 to 6.
--------------------------------------------------------

HAT:
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.
Crochet 4 ch on hook size 3 mm with Safran and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch.
ROUND 1: 3 ch (= 1 tr), work 11 tr in ch-ring, finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round.
ROUND 2 (switch to Cotton Viscose): Work 2 ch, 1 dc in next tr, 1 ch * 1 dc in next tr, 1 ch *, repeat from *-* the entire round and finish with 1 sl st in first ch from beg of round.
ROUND 3: 1 ch, 1 dc in 2nd ch from previous round, * 4 ch, 1 dc in next ch from previous round *, repeat from *-*, finish with 1 sl st in first dc from beg of round = 12 ch-loops.
ROUND 4 (switch back to Safran): 2 ch, 1 dc in first ch-loop, * 4 ch, 1 dc in next ch-loop, 4 ch, 1 dc in next ch-loop, 8 ch (= corner), 1 dc in next ch-loop *, repeat from *-* the entire round, but finish with 1 sl st in first dc from beg of round (instead of 1 dc in next ch-loop). Cut and fasten all the threads.

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: 2 ch, 1 dc in first ch-loop, 4 ch, 1 dc in next ch-loop, 4 ch, 1 dc in next ch-loop, 4 ch, place the square WS against WS with SQUARE 1, work 1 dc in one of the large ch-loops on SQUARE 1 (= corner), 4 ch, 1 dc in next ch-loop on SQUARE 2, * 2 ch, 1 dc in next small ch-loop on SQUARE 1, 2 ch, 1 dc in next ch-loop on SQUARE 2 *, repeat from *-* 1 more time, 4 ch, 1 dc in next large ch-loop on SQUARE 1 (= corner), 4 ch, 1 dc in next ch-loop on SQUARE 2. Then work around SQUARE 2 as follows: ** 4 ch, 1 dc in next ch-loop, 4 ch, 1 dc in next ch-loop, 8 ch, 1 dc in next ch-loop **, repeat from **-** 1 more time but finish with 1 sl st in first dc from beg of round. Cut and fasten all the threads.

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 along one side of the squares as follows: 5 tr in each of the large ch-loops in the corners on the squares and 3 tr in each of the small ch-loops = 16 tr per square and 128 tr in total. Then work PATTERN - see explanation above. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures approx. 12 cm (incl squares) – adjust so that next round is a round with only tr or dc – 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 dc instead of 1 dc when dec) = 16 sts remain. Finally work 1 round with dc and skip every other st = 8 sts. The piece now measures approx. 19-20 cm vertically. Cut the thread and pull it through the 8 remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten.

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

Hallo. Tut mir leid aber ich verstehe die Abnahme leider immer noch nicht.... in der ersten Abnahmerunde mit fm oder stb nehme ich 16 Maschen ab indem ich jede 8. Masche überspringe. In der zweiten Abnahmerunde sofern diese fm oder stb sind nehme ich ebenso wieder 16 Maschen auf die gleiche Weise ab und häkel dreimal zwischen den Abnahmen eine Masche weniger usw. Ist das korrekt?

DROPS Design 05.07.2019 kl. 14:09:

Liebe Sandra, also ja 16 M werden so abgenommen aber in jeder 2. Runde noch 3 Mal un dann in jeder Runde 3 Mal - bei der 2. Abnahmenrunde überspringen Sie jede 7. Masche, dann bei der 3. Abnahmenrunde überspringen Sie jede 6. Masche usw. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

Sandra 01.07.2019 - 15:01:

Hallo. Ich hab eine Frage zur Abnahme am Hut oben. In der Anleitung steht jede 8 Masche überspringen bis es 116 Maschen sind und dann drei Mal in jeder. Heißt hier jede 2. Runde die Runde des Musters? Also 4 lm eine fm überspringen usw? Und dreimal heißt dann 48 Maschen abnehmen? Vielen Dank.

DROPS Design 01.07.2019 kl. 15:30:

Liebe Sandra, die Abnahmen werden nur entweder auf eine Runde mit fM oder auf eine mit nur Stb (=wenn Sie dann in jeder Runde abnehmen, bei der 2. Reihe im Muster die Abnahmen so anpassen, daß Sie 2 M anstatt 1 M überspringen). Wenn es nur 16 M bleiben, übespringen Sie alle 2. Masche. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

Sonia I Pizarro 10.01.2019 - 20:35:

Ok, I feel very confused with the furst section of the patterm. It says to do a sc in each dc, but it does not said how to begin, or how many chains and how many dc you have to make to start. Reading in the comments I found that you explain to do 24 stitches. So I have a couple of questions: Does this mean that the first row od dc does not count towards tne 10”x10” square? So this first 6 rows it’s only for the purpose of gauge measuring?

DROPS Design 11.01.2019 kl. 09:17:

Dear Mrs Pizarro, the pattern does start with HAT (the informations before are just some further explanations to the pattern). You first crochet a total of 8 squares (square-1 and 2) work them into a circle and then crochet first the crown of hat (bottom up) and finally the brim. For your gauge, 1 square should be approx. 2½" x 2½" and 24 sts x 16 rows in pattern (= 1 row sc, 1 row dc) = 4"x4". Happy crocheting!

Dianne 14.08.2015 - 03:38:

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.
