Having trouble with Round 11. Have made this hat twice and still can't figure it out!:(

DROPS Design 15.01.2019 kl. 08:46:

Dear Jackie, the stitches worked on round 11 has to be worked in the sts from round 9 around the sts from round 10: Insert the crochet hook in the sts from round 9 (as you did for the sl sts on round 10) and work the dc as usual, the sl sts from round 10 should be hidden in the dc on round 11. Happy crocheting!

Jackie 14.01.2019 - 15:22:

How is row 11 worked? Made 2 of these hats & still did not get it right!:0

DROPS Design 14.01.2019 kl. 17:39:

Dear Jackie, on round 10 you crocheted 1 sl st in each dc from round 9 around. On round 11 crochet 1 dc in each stitch from round 9 around the sl st from round 10: insert the crochet hook in the dc from round 9 so that the sl st from round 10 will be "hidden" in the dc on round 11. Happy crocheting!

Oh, ik zie het al zelf, het proeflapje wordt met stokjes gehaakt; want stk='stokje' en niet 'steek' 😉

Loes 06.01.2019 - 14:06:

Voor het proeflapje met haaknaald 6: welke steek moet ik daar gebruiken? Vasten?

DROPS Design 09.01.2019 kl. 11:42:

Dag Loes,

Voor het proeflapje gebruik je stokjes.

For those with size issues first make sure you are using the correct thickness yarn (not clear in pattern what that is). round 5 make sure to increase the 4 dc which gives you one extra shell in the shell rows. makes all the difference.

After attempt #12, I have given up (bought the exact same wool inc colour - it\'s gorgeous BTW) and I\'m using the correct size hook, and the tension is good, it\'s not tight, there\'s plenty of stretch. Either I have a large cranium or, the model has a small one. \r\nWill attempt a different pattern.

Linda Aulenti 11.03.2017 - 14:55:

I started and finished this hat 3 times, but....... Following the pattern and increasing along the way as instructed, how then did I end up with a 17.5 in. hat instead of the 22.25? All stitches were counted along the way and are correct. I am using a 6mm needle as required. Help please!

DROPS Design 13.03.2017 kl. 09:56:

Dear Mrs Aulenti, did you also checked your crochet tension? you should have 12 dc x 5 rows = 10 x 10 cm. Happy crocheting!

Eva 21.09.2015 - 10:47:

Ich find die Anleitung Klasse. Hab ihn auch schon zweimal gemacht, mit unterschiedlicher wolle. Und NS 6. Aber weder komm ich auf die Bildgröße noch ist meine Kampe so abstehend. Was könnte denn falsch sein bei mir? Liegt das tatsächlich an meiner wolle? (einmal für 8-10 und einmal 6-8 getestet) Lg Eva

DROPS Design 28.09.2015 kl. 10:07:

Am besten ist natürlich immer, wenn Sie die Originalwolle verwenden. Außerdem ist es ganz wichtig und maßgeblich, dass Sie die Maschenprobe einhalten. Wenn Sie die Maschenprobe mit Nadel 6 nicht einhalten, müssen Sie eine etwas größere Nadel verwenden (ich vermute, Ihr Hut ist zu klein?) und so lange probieren, bis Sie die Maschenprobe erhalten.

Grazie per la risposta, in realtà non ho fatto un campione, ma con una lana così grossa pensavo di poter stare tranquilla, anzi temevo venisse troppo grande...invece è successo il contrario! La prossima volta lo farò, sperando che la lana basti...comunque ho fatto molti dei vostri modelli usando altre lane e mi sono sempre venuti bene perché le vostre spiegazioni sono chiarissime e facili da seguire, anche quando ho dovuto usare aghi o uncinetti di misura diversa. Grazie siete magnifici!

DROPS Design 21.01.2015 kl. 21:46:

Buonasera Francesca, in realtà il campione è necessario per tutti i tipi di filato; magari per il suo modo di lavorare sarebbe stato necessario utilizzare una misura in più di uncinetto...in ogni caso buon lavoro!

Francesca 20.01.2015 - 11:17:

Ho realizzato il cappello utilizzando la lana indicata e l'uncinetto della misura giusta nella taglia più grande e sono rimasta molto sorpresa perché è veramente piccolo, va bene per mia figlia che ha 4 anni. Ho aggiunto una riga dopo la nona perché era anche corto, ma con i due gomitoli consigliati non sarebbe possibile ingrandirlo ulteriormente, forse bisognerebbe lavorarlo con un uncinetto più grosso, ma come ho detto la lana non basterebbe...peccato

DROPS Design 20.01.2015 kl. 18:41:

Buonasera Francesca, siamo dispiaciute per questo risultato, ma il suo campione corrispondeva a quello indicato? Buon lavoro!
