--------------------------------------------------------

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:
Ch 4 on hook size 3 mm / C with medium pink and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch.
ROUND 1: 3 ch (= 1 dc), 11 dc in ch-ring, finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round (= 12 dc), cut and fasten the thread.
ROUND 2 (raspberry): Work 1 sc in first dc, ch 4, * 1 sc in next dc, 4 ch *, repeat from *-* the entire round and finish with 1 sl st in first sc from beg of round (= 12 ch spaces), cut and fasten the thread.
ROUND 3 (lime): 1 sc in first ch space, * ch 2, 1 sc in next ch space, 6 ch (= corner), 1 sc in next ch space, ch 2, 1 sc in next ch space *, repeat from *-* the entire round but instead of last sc, finish with 1 sl st in first sc from beg of round. Cut and fasten the thread. The square measures approx. 5 x 5 cm / 2'' x 2" with a light pull.

SQUARE 2:
Work 1st and 2nd round as SQUARE 1.
ROUND 3 (lime): 1 sc in first ch space, ch 2, 1 sc in next ch space, ch 3, place the square WS against WS with SQUARE 1, work 1 sc in one of the large ch spaces on SQUARE 1 (= corner), ch 3, 1 sc in next ch space on SQUARE 2, * ch 1, 1 sc in next small ch space on SQUARE 1, ch 1, 1 sc in next ch space on SQUARE 2 *, repeat from *-* 1 more time, ch 3, 1 sc in next large ch space on SQUARE 1 (= corner), ch 3, 1 sc in next ch space on SQUARE 2. Then finish working around SQUARE 2 the same way as on SQUARE 1. Cut and fasten all the threads.

Continue to work the squares tog until a total of 9-10-11 squares have been worked. NOTE: 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 lime on hook size 3 mm / C along one side of the squares as follows: 3 sc in each of the large ch spaces in the corners on squares and 2 sc in each of the small ch spaces, in addition work 1 sc in transition between squares (= 11 sc per square and 99-110-121 sc in total).
Then work PATTERN - see explanation above. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures approx. 10-10½-11 cm / 4"-4 1/4"-4½" (incl squares) – adjust so that next round is a round with only dc or sc – dec 11 sts evenly by skipping every 9th-10th-11th st = 88-99-110 sts. Repeat dec every other round 2 more times and then every round 4-5-6 times (1 st less every time 1 st is skipped) = 22 sts remain. Finally work 1 round with sc and skip every other st = 11 sts. The piece now measures approx. 16-17-18 cm / 6 1/4"-6 3/4"-7" vertically. Cut the thread and pull it through the 11 remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten.

BRIM OF HAT:
Work with lime along the other side of squares the same way as along the first side = 99-110-121 sc. Then finish the brim with raspberry as follows: ROUND 2: 1 sc in every sc but work 2 sc in every 9th-10th-11th sc (i.e. inc 11 sts) = 110-121-132 sc.
ROUND 3: 1 dc in every sc.
ROUND 4: 1 sc in every dc but work 2 sc in every 10th-11th-12th dc = 121-132-143 sc.
ROUND 5: 1 dc in every sc.
ROUND 6: 1 sc in every dc but work 2 sc in every 11th-12th-13th dc = 132-143-154 sc.
ROUND 7: 1 dc in every sc.
ROUND 8: 1 sc in every dc.
ROUND 9: Finish by working 1 round with sc the opposite way, i.e. from left to right (= REVERSE CROCHET), cut and fasten the thread. Brim measures approx. 4-5 cm / 1½"-2".
