NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
CROCHET INFO: Replace first dc at beg of every round with 1 ch. Finish every row with 1 sl st in 1st ch from beg of round.

STRIPES: Start with forget-me-not. Rounds 4, 8 and 12 are worked in light grey green, then work with forget-me-not until piece measures 17-18-19 cm. Work 5 rounds with light grey green.

ROUNDS WITH TR AND CH:
Work every round with tr and ch as follows: Turn piece so that WS is towards you, work 4 ch (= 1 tr + 1 ch), skip 1 ch-space (= last ch from previous round), * 1 tr in next ch-space, 1 ch *, repeat from *-*, finish round with 1 tr in last ch-space (= ch-space with 4 ch from previous round), 1 sl st in ch-space with 4 ch from beg of round – i.e. work alternately on RS and WS to make a nice finish on round.

HAT:
ROUND 1: Work 4 ch on hook size 6 mm with forget-me-not and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch, work 6 dc in ch-ring = 6 dc. READ CROCHET INFO! Work stripes - see explanation above.
HAT:
ROUND 2: 2 dc in every dc = 12 dc. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION!
ROUND 3: * 1 dc in first dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* = 18 dc.
ROUND 4: * 1 dc in each of the first 2 dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* = 24 dc.
ROUND 5: * 1 dc in each of the first 3 dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* = 30 dc.
ROUND 6: * 1 dc in each of the first 4 dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* = 36 dc.
ROUND 7: * 1 dc in each of the first 5 dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* = 42 dc.
ROUND 8: * 1 dc in each of the first 6 dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* = 48 dc.
ROUND 9: * 1 dc in each of the first 7 dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* = 54 dc.

ROUND 11: Work 1 dc in every dc but inc 1-4-7 dc evenly = 61-64-67 dc.
Continue to work 1 dc in every dc until piece measures approx. 17-18-19 cm. Work 5 rounds with light grey green. Fasten off. Hat measures approx. 20-21-22 cm.

POMPOM:
Make 1 pompom with light grey green with an approx. diameter of 8 cm. Fasten it to the top of the hat.
