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:
Don’t end each round with a sl st in first st, but keep working continuous rounds in the round in a spiral. Use a marker or marking thread to mark beginning of each round. Work sc into back loops of sts to create a striped texture.

MAGIC CIRCLE:
Start with this technique to avoid holes in the middle (instead of ch-ring): Hold the yarn end and wind the yarn one time around the index finger to make a loop. Hold the loop with left thumb and middle finger, place the yarn over left index finger. Insert hook through the loop, make a YO and pull yarn through loop, ch 1, then work sc's around the loop. When the desired no of sc have been reached, pull the yarn end to tighten the loop. Fasten the yarn end on the back side. Continue to work in the round in a circle.

DECREASE TIPS:
Work together approx every 7th/8th - 6th/7th sc on round. Work 2 sc tog: * insert hook in back loop of next st, get yarn *, repeat from *-* one more time, make a YO and pull yarn through all 3 sts on hook.

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

HAT:
With hook size 5 mm / H and medium brown make a Magic circle - see above, or ch 4 and join into a ring by working a sl st into 1st chain.
READ CROCHET INFO!
ROUND 1: Work 8 sc in circle/ch-ring.
From now on work sc into back loops of sts.
ROUND 2: Work 2 sc in every sc = 16 sc.
ROUND 3: * 1 sc in first sc, 2 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* around = 24 sc.
ROUND 4: * 1 sc in each of the next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* around = 32 sc.
ROUND 5: Work 1 sc in every sc = 32 sc.
ROUND 6: * 1 sc in each of the next 3 sc, 2 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* around = 40 sc.
ROUND 7: * 1 sc in each of the next 4 sc, 2 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* around = 48 sc.
ROUND 8: * 1 sc in each of the next 5 sc, 2 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* around = 56 sc.
ROUND 9: * 1 sc in each of the next 6 sc, 2 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* the rest of the round = 64 sc.
ROUND 10: * 1 sc in each of the next 7 sc, 2 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* around = 72 sc.
ROUND 11: * 1 sc in each of the next 8 sc, 2 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* around = 80 sc.
ROUND 12: * 1 sc in each of the next 9 sc, 2 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* around = 88 sc.
Finish inc in size S/M here, continue to work sc in the round.
ROUND 13: * 1 sc in each of the next 10 sc, 2 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* around = 96 sc.
Finish inc in size L/XL here, continue to work sc in the round.
When hat measures 12-15 cm / 5"-6" from top work sc's as before and change colors as follows: 2 rounds black, 3 rounds medium brown, 1 round black and on this round dec 12-14 sc evenly - read dec.tips above (= 76-82 sc remain), 4 rounds black, 2 rounds medium brown.
Now hat measures approx. 20-23 cm /8”-9” from the top.
Fasten off.

How do I stop the spiral? There's not obvious transition from the beginning of the spiral to the end, so I can't tell where to put my sl st before I change colors.

DROPS Design 16.08.2018 kl. 09:37:

Dear Angelina, for a nicer transition for the stripes, add a marker in the first st of every round and let the marker follow the piece so that you can sl st the last st with first colour in this stitch. You can also continue working in the round in a spiral with the new colour, the transition will be quite smooth. Happy crocheting!

Lyn 23.05.2018 - 15:02:

Thanks for your prompt reply and video. I understand working in the round but it doesn't work the same in a spiral for me. Is the jog unavoidable in this situation

DROPS Design 23.05.2018 kl. 16:07:

Dear Lynn, when working stripes, stop the spiral and join in the round with the technique shown in the video will avoid you a jog at the beg of round. Happy crocheting!

Lyn 23.05.2018 - 14:24:

I am failing to be able to join my spiral stripes without the "jog" despite reading an earlier comment you made. "before changing colour you can join with a sl st with the new colour and continue as before without joining until next stripe, you will then avoid a jog at the back of hat" It sounds simple enough but not working for me. Can you suggest what I'm missing in the interpretation n explain again

Lyn 23.05.2018 - 14:18:

I'm failing to be able to join my spiral stripes without the "jog" despite reading your earlier answer to Lori. I'm obviously not interpreting something correctly "before changing colour you can join with a sl st with the new colour and continue as before without joining until next stripe, you will then avoid a jog at the back of hat" It sounds simple enough but it's not working for me..any suggestions what I'm missing.

DROPS Design 23.05.2018 kl. 14:39:

Dear Lynn, this video shows how to change colour at the end of round, ie work the beg of st with first colour (same of the round you are finishing) and make the last pull through with the colour used on next round. Happy crocheting!

Lori 06.04.2018 - 06:21:

Because the rows are worked in a spiral, my stripes are not straight at the join. Any advice?

DROPS Design 06.04.2018 kl. 08:47:

Dear Lori, before changing colour you can join with a sl st with the new colour and continue as before without joining until next stripe, you will then avoid a jog at the back of hat. Happy crocheting!

I have made two of these now and am on my third -- and I NEVER usually repeat a pattern! These beanies have such a nice weight to them -- not too bulky. I used yarn I had in my stash (Loops & Threads Impeccable) and it worked great. Thanks for the EXCELLENT pattern!

Danielle 27.01.2017 - 21:58:

It seems to me that this is worked in single crochet, am I wrong?

DROPS Design 30.01.2017 kl. 10:33:

Dear Danielle, you are right, this hat is worked in sc, crocheting in back loop of sts. See US-English pattern here. Happy crocheting!

Sara 18.01.2017 - 21:05:

Non capisco come procedere per le diminuzioni ho fatto la misura M, di quante maglie devo diminuire? Devo fare le diminuziono su piú giri? SUGGERIMENTO PER LE DIMINUZIONI: Lavorare insieme circa ogni 7°/8° m.b – 6°/7° m.b sul giro

DROPS Design 18.01.2017 kl. 21:21:

Buonasera Sara. Deve diminuire 12 maglie, su un unico giro, lavorando insieme ogni 7a e 8a maglia come indicato nel suggerimento per le diminuzioni. Buon lavoro!

Theresa J 30.12.2016 - 10:24:

Do you work dc in back loops on all sts or just round 2? Also do you sl st or chain at all?

DROPS Design 02.01.2017 kl. 08:18:

Dear Theresa, you are working in back loop of sts from round 2 to finished measurements. You are working in the round in a spiral, ie after you have worked the last dc on round, do not sl st in 1st st at beg of round, just crochet 1 dc in first dc at the beg of next round (see CROCHET INFO). Happy crocheting!
