Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in American English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from inches to cm - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in American and British English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in British English, please click here.
CROCHET INFO:
Replace first sc on round with 1 ch. Finish with 1 sl st in ch from beg of round.
Replace first dc on a dc round with 3 ch. Finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch.

PATTERN:
See diagram A.1.

REVERS CROCHET:
Work as sc but backwards. I.e. crochet around from left to right

ROUNDS WITH DC AND CH:
Work every round with dc and ch as follows: Turn piece so that WS is towards you, work 4 ch (= 1st dc + 1st ch), skip 1st ch-space (= last ch from previous round), * 1 dc in next ch-space, ch 1 *. Repeat from *-*, finish round with 1 dc 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 from RS and WS to get a nice finish/beg on round.
----------------------------------------------------------


BERET:
The piece is worked top down.
ROUND 1: Ch 4 on hook size 4 mm / G/6 with Karisma and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch, work 8 sc in ch-ring - READ CROCHET INFO.
ROUND 2: Work 2 sc in every sc the entire round = 16 sc. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE!
ROUND 3: * 1 sc in first sc, 2 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* = 24 sc.
ROUND 4: * 1 sc in each of the next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* = 32 sc.
Then work according to A.1 (= 4 repetitions on round).
When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, there are 32 ch-spaces on round.
Continue to work as follows:
ROUND 1: Work 4 dc in every ch-space = 128 dc.
ROUND 2: Work 1 dc in every dc AT THE SAME TIME dec 2 dc evenly = 126 dc.
ROUND 3: Work 1 dc in every dc but work every 13th and 14th dc tog = 117 dc.
ROUND 4: Work 1 dc in every dc but work every 12th and 13th dc tog = 108 dc.
ROUND 5: Work 1 dc in every dc but work every 11th and 12th dc tog = 99 dc.
ROUND 6: Work 1 dc in every dc AT THE SAME TIME dec 11 dc evenly = 88 dc.
ROUND 7-10: Work 1 dc in every dc the entire round.
ROUND 11: Work with a double thread. Work a round with REVERSE CROCHET - see explanation above.
---------------------------------------------------------

NECK WARMER:
Work in the round with Karisma on hook size 4 mm / G/6, work 1 loose ch-row with 228 ch, finish with 1 sl st in 1st ch. Ch 4 (= 1st dc + 1st ch), * skip 1 ch, 1 dc in next ch, 1 ch *, repeat from *-* the entire round and finish with 1 sl st in ch-space with 4 ch from beg of round = 114 dc + ch. Then work ROUNDS WITH dc AND CH – see explanation above. Continue like this until piece measures 18 cm / 7’’ vertically.
Then work a fan edge as follows:
ROUND 1: Work 1 ch in 1st sc, 1 sc in every dc and 1 sc in every ch the entire round and finish with 1 sl st in first ch = 228 sc.
ROUND 2: Work 1 ch in 1st sc, * skip 2 sc, 6 dc in next sc, skip 2 sc, 1 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* the entire round and finish with 1 sl st in first ch = 38 fans. Work the same way in the other side. Fasten off.

Margherita De Luca 16.04.2019 - 06:26:

Hello, Can this pattern be made with a fingering yarn? Would you start with 12 sc instead of 8 so it sits flat?

DROPS Design 16.04.2019 kl. 15:38:

Dear Margherita, the original yarn, DROPS Karisma is a light DK weight yarn, not much thicker than the fingering weight you ask for. Unfortunately, we cannot recalculate every pattern for each individual request, but I would suggest to make a small trial piece and make the necessary modifications, recalculations accordingly. Happy Crafting!

Bij de patroon staat dat het patroon is gecorrigeerd en dat de toeren 1 tm 4 vasten moeten worden inplaats van stokjes. Maar om welke 4 toeren gaat dit is dat van het telpatroon A1 of van de andere 4 toeren

DROPS Design 05.01.2019 kl. 20:29:

Dag Heidi,

Waar vasten hadden moeten staan, stonden eerst stokjes in het patroon, maar je kunt gewoon het online patroon gebruiken, want de correcties zijn hierin al doorgevoerd.

Mme Gromelle Pour moi le pb de taille se ressoud en prenant un crochet un peu plus gros (4,5 ou 5) et de prėvoir un rab de laine. J'adore ce modèle. J'ai dėja fait ce modèle et je recommence pour ma fille ! Bon crochet

Gromelle 20.10.2018 - 19:54:

Bonjour, ce modèle de bonnet est trop petit. Est-il possible de le faire plus grand ? avec peut-être une laine différente et un crochet plus gros ? Il me faudrait une taille L - tour de tête 59cm. Merci pour votre retour d'information. Cordialement.

DROPS Design 22.10.2018 kl. 08:21:

Bonjour Mme Gromelle, nous ne sommes malheureusement pas en mesure de pouvoir adapter chacun de nos modèles à chaque demande. N'hésitez pas à contacter - même par mail ou téléphone - le magasin où vous avez acheté votre laine pour toute assistance. Bon crochet!

Caroline 12.10.2018 - 20:41:

Bonjour j’ai fini A1 mais je ne comprends pas les tour 4 et 5. Pourriez vous m’expliquer s’il vous plaît

DROPS Design 15.10.2018 kl. 08:07:

Bonjour Caroline, aux tours 4 et 5 après A.1 on va diminuer ainsi: Tour 4: *1 bride dans chacune des 11 brides suivantes, écoulez les 2 brides suivantes ensemble*, répétez de *-* tout le tour. Tour 5: *1 bride dans chacune des 10 brides suivantes, écoulez les 2 brides suivantes ensemble*, répétez de *-* tout le tour. Bon crochet!

Zila Doucette 11.10.2018 - 17:33:

Hi - I am relatively new at crochet and I absolutely LOVE this set and want to make a couple. Do you consider it to be easy enough for a beginner? Also, is the size of the yarn 100g the weight? Thanks, Zila

DROPS Design 12.10.2018 kl. 07:33:

Dear Zila, you'll find some videos explaining the different techniques used in that pattern, follow diagram as explained in the written pattern starting from the bottom corner on the right side towards the left on every round. You'll find here all informations about the yarn, feel free to contact your DROPS store - even per mail or telephone - for any individual assistance. Happy crocheting!

Cloudy 03.08.2018 - 09:16:

Yaaay I finished the beret and it's perfect. For those who found it was too big i had the same problem so I continued decreasing in the final rounds after knitting tog 11th and 12th stitches I decreased 10th and 11th, 9th and 10th until I got the desired fit and then did the last row which was the REVERSE CROCHET .....perfect!!

Cloudy 02.08.2018 - 16:43:

Thank you so much for answering my questions I will persevere 🤗🤗

Cloudy 02.08.2018 - 13:28:

So does the 3 chain that you do at the beginning of each row count as a stitch? Would that be 3 chain then the dc in the chain space?

DROPS Design 02.08.2018 kl. 14:25:

Dear Cloudy, at the beg of row 3 (and then 6, and 9) you can sl st until 1st ch-space and then replace the 1st dc with 3 chains. Happy crocheting!

Cloudy 02.08.2018 - 09:51:

Thank you for info re: R2 In R3 is it 9 dc in the ch3 space from R2? I wish there was an easier way of reading these graphs. They can be so confusing!

DROPS Design 02.08.2018 kl. 14:12:

Dear Cloudy, correct, you work 9 dc (US-English) in the 3-ch-spaces from round 2. Happy crocheting!
