Pattern instructions

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:
After last dc on the round, continue to next round with 1 dc in next dc (= first dc from previous round). NOTE: Insert a marker at the beg of round between last dc and first dc on the round, move the marker upwards. Work dc in back loops on sts before a stripe pattern.

MAGIC CIRCLE:
Start with this technique to avoid hole 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, work 1 ch, then work dc around the loop. When the desired no of dc have been reached, pull the yarn end to tighten the loop. Fasten yarn end on the back and continue to work in the round in a circle.

DECREASE TIP:
Work approx. every 7th/8th dc - 6th/7th dc on round. Work 2 dc tog as follows: Insert hook in first dc and pull yarn through, insert hook in next dc and pull yarn through, make a YO and pull yarn through all sts on hook.
--------------------------------------------------------

HAT:
With hook size 5 mm and medium brown work a MAGIC CIRCLE - see above, or work 4 ch and form a ring with 1 sl st in 1st ch. READ CROCHET INFO!
ROUND 1: Work 8 dc in circle/ch-ring.
Now work dc in back loops on sts.
ROUND 2: Work 2 dc in every dc = 16 dc.
ROUND 3: * 1 dc in first dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* = 24 dc.
ROUND 4: * 1 dc in the next 2 dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* = 32 dc.
ROUND 5: Work 1 dc in every dc = 32 dc. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION!
ROUND 6: * 1 dc in the next 3 dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* = 40 dc.
ROUND 7: * 1 dc in the next 4 dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* = 48 dc.
ROUND 8: * 1 dc in the next 5 dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* = 56 dc.
ROUND 9: * 1 dc in the next 6 dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* = 64 dc.
ROUND 10: * 1 dc in the next 7 dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* = 72 dc.
ROUND 11: * 1 dc in the next 8 dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* = 80 dc.
ROUND 12: * 1 dc in the next 9 dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* = 88 dc.
Finish inc in size S/M here, continue working dc in the round.
ROUND 13: * 1 dc in the next 10 dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* = 96 dc.
Finish inc in size L/XL here, continue working dc in the round.
When piece measures 12-15 cm, work dc as before and change colour as follows: 2 rounds black, 3 rounds medium brown, 1 round black and on this round dec 12-14 dc evenly – READ DECREASE TIP (= 76-82 dc remain), 4 rounds black, 2 rounds medium brown.
Hat measures approx. 20-23 cm from the top.
Fasten off.

Is it possible to make this with super bulky yarn? what adjustments are needed?

DROPS Design 06.02.2019 kl. 09:08:

Dear Kelly, your tension will be completely different and pattern would have to be completely adjusted to your own tension. Should you need any individual assistance to adjust the pattern to your yarn please contact the store where you bought the yarn. Happy crocheting!

Sandra 12.12.2018 - 15:21:

I'm a beginner and the finished product was too tight at the end. What did I do wrong?

DROPS Design 12.12.2018 kl. 16:10:

Dear Sandra, did you get the correct tension? You should have 17 dc (UK)/ sc (US) = 10 cm/4" in width - and keep the same tension while working the hat. Happy crocheting!

Libby 14.11.2018 - 14:24:

Hi, first of all great pattern it comes out really good! My question is, do I keep decrease as I go along from the black or do I decrease only once in the black row in this pattern? I hope you understand my question

DROPS Design 14.11.2018 kl. 15:04:

Dear Libby, you decrease only 1 time 12-14 sts on one round (the first round after the 3 rounds with medium brown) = there are now 76-82 sts continue working the last 6 rounds without decreasing anymore. Happy crocheting!

Angelina 16.08.2018 - 02:12:

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!
