Tips & Help

Thank you for choosing DROPS Design!

We do our best to make our patterns easy to follow.

For that purpose, each of our patterns has specific tutorial videos to help you, which you will find at the bottom of the page.

We have also step-by-step lessons to help you understand some of the techniques we use in our patterns. You'll find them here!

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.
YARN CHANGE TIP:
When switching ball with Polaris, split the old strand in two on the last 15 cm – cut off one part, do the same on the new strand. Place the first and last 15 cm on top of each other so that the yarn is the normal thickness and continue to work – this is done to make the strand switch invisible in the yarn.

SPIRAL PATTERN:
Work * K 4, P 2*, repeat *-* around. The pattern repeat goes over 6 sts and the stitch number can be divided by 6 + 1. When working in the round the pattern will automatically shift 1 st to the right for each round and creates a spiral pattern.

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

HAT:
Cast on 49-55 sts on double pointed needles size 8 mm with 1 strand Polaris or 2 strands Eskimo and work in the round.
K 1 round over all sts.
Then work according to SPIRAL PATTERN – see explanation above until piece measures approx. 17-18 cm – READ YARN CHANGE TIP! K 1 round, insert 6 markers in piece with 8-9 sts before each of the first 5 markers and 9-10 sts before last marker.
Continue in stocking st AT THE SAME TIME on first round dec 1 st on right side of every marker by K 2 tog, repeat every other round 4-5 more times (= a total of 5-6 times) = 19-19 sts.
On next round K 2 tog around = 10-10 sts. Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten.

POMPOM:
Make a large, somewhat loose pompom of 15 cm in diameter and fasten at the top of hat.
----------------------------------------------------------

NECK WARMER:
