CROCHET INFO 1:
Replace first hdc at beg of every hdc row with 2 ch.

CROCHET INFO 2:
At beg of every sc round, replace first sc with 1 ch and finish every round with 1 sl st in first ch from beg of round.
Replace first dc at beg of every dc round with ch 3, finish every round with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round.

DECREASE TIP 1:
Work 2 sc into 1 sc: Work 1 sc but wait with last pull through (= 2 sts on hook), then work next sc but on last pull through, pull yarn through all sts on hook.

DECREASE TIP 2:
Work 2 dc into 1 dc: Work 1 dc but wait with last pull through (= 2 strands on hook), then work next dc but on last pull through, pull yarn through all sts on hook.
--------------------------------------------------------

HAT:
Work in the round but beg with a ribbon worked sideways at the bottom.
RIBBON:
Work 8 ch on hook size 4.5 mm/7 with Nepal, and work 1st row as follows: 1 hdc in 3rd ch from hook (= 2 hdc), 1 hdc in each of the next 5 ch = 7 hdc, turn piece. READ CROCHET INFO 1. Then work hdc back and forth but work every hdc in back loop of st (i.e. not through whole st) = rib texture. Continue until piece measures approx. 49-53 cm / 19 1/4"-21", cut the yarn and sew tog short sides to form a ring – ribbon measures approx. 4 cm / 1½'' in width. Fasten the strand.
CROWN:
Now work around the edge on ribbon.
Work * 1 sc in each of the next 3 rows, work 2 sc in next row *, repeat from *-* the entire round - READ CROCHET INFO 2. = approx. 83-90 sc - then work 1 round with sc AT THE SAME TIME adjust no of sts to 80-85 sc - READ DECREASE TIP 1!
Now work according to 1st round in diagram as follows: A.1, A.2 16-17 times in total in width. Repeat row 2 and 3 of diagram 2 times vertically, then piece will measure approx. 11 cm / 4½'' incl ribbon. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE!
Continue to work in dc, AT THE SAME TIME dec as follows: READ DECREASE TIP 2! Dec 8-9 sts evenly = 72-76 dc. On next round, dec 8-7 dc evenly. Repeat dec every other round 4 times in total = 40-48 dc. Then dec 8-6 dc evenly every round 1-2 times in total = 32-36 dc. Now work sc with dec as follows: READ DECREASE TIP 1 – Work 2 and 2 sc tog = 16-18 sc. Repeat dec on next round = 8-9 sc. Cut the yarn, baste it up and down through sts, pull yarn to tighten and fasten tightly. The hat measures approx. 24-25 cm / 9½"-9 3/4" vertically.

Work diagram 1 time vertically, then work 1 round with 1 sc in every sc - READ CROCHET INFO 2 = 30-35 sc. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE! Then work dc in the round with 1 dc in every st AT THE SAME TIME adjust no of sts to 27-30 dc by working 2 dc tog evenly – READ DECREASE TIP 2 - AT THE SAME TIME when 3 rounds have been worked with dc, inc 1 dc for thumb on each side of 1st st at beg of round - inc 1 dc by working 2 dc in same dc. Repeat inc on each side of this st every round 4-5 times in total = 35-40 dc on round (thumb sts = 9-11 dc). Work next round as follows: Work 1 sl st in each of the first 6-7 dc at beg of round, 3 ch (= 1 dc), then work 1 dc in each of the next 25-28 dc, 1 ch and finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch at beg of round = 26-29 dc and 1 ch on round. On next round, work 1 dc in every dc and 1 dc in ch at end of round = 27-30 dc. Then work dc in the round until mitten measures 18-21 cm / 7"-8 1/4" from division at cuff (try the mitten on, approx. 3 cm / 1'' remain until finished measurements).
Continue to work as follows:
ROUND 1: Work 1 dc in every dc AT THE SAME TIME work every 2nd and 3rd dc tog = 18-20 dc.
ROUND 2: Work 1 dc in every dc AT THE SAME TIME work 2 and 2 dc tog = 9-10 dc.

The set is beautiful; however, the pattern for the hat is poorly written and very confusing, even for a very experienced advanced crocheter.

DROPS Design 19.11.2018 kl. 09:54:

Dear Anita, we are sorry to hear you have had troubles with this pattern - There maybe as many ways to write patterns than there are crocheters – you are welcome to ask your questions here, or for any individual assistance reading our patterns and diagrams you are welcome to contact the store where you bought your yarn (even per mail or telephone). Happy crocheting!

Janet 14.10.2016 - 21:31:

I really wish you had a video on how to do the diagram, it's very confusing.

LaurieB 12.02.2016 - 04:56:

Bonjour, avec l'aide d'une amie, je suis parvenue à trouver mon erreur qui faisait que je ne comprenais pas le point. Je confondais DB (double bride) avec db (demi-bride)! Je suis encore débutante mais j'aime beaucoup les patrons que vous offrez! Merci et bonne fin de semaine!

LaurieB 10.02.2016 - 22:37:

Bonjour! Je n'arrive pas à faire le point de fantaisie de Tell Me by DROPS Design Bonnet, tour de cou et moufles DROPS avec motif ajouré, en “Nepal”. Je ne comprends pas le diagramme. Y a-t-il une vidéo explicative? Sinon, j'ai besoin d'explications claires et faciles à comprendre, je suis encore débutante. Merci beaucoup pour votre aide.

DROPS Design 11.02.2016 kl. 10:34:

Bonjour LaurieB, il n'y a pas encore de vidéo pour ce motif, il se crochète ainsi - A.1 montre comment commencer les tours (1 ml pour 1 rang de ms, 4 ml pour 1 rang de B) et les terminer (1 mc dans la 1ère/4ème ml du début du tour). Dans A.2, tour 1: 1ms dans chaque m. Tour 2: *2 ml (on aura 6 ml au début du tour), 4DB écoulées ens, 2 ml, 1 DB* répétez de *-*. Au 3ème tour: *2 ms dans chacun des 2 arceaux de 2 ml, 1 ms dans la DB*. Bon crochet!

Nina 03.02.2016 - 21:32:

HI - I battled to figure out the diagram at first, but I stuck at it and figured it out. R 1: ch1 and then sc in every stitch around. R 2: ch4 (TR), *ch 2, 4TR (following explanation above diagram), ch2, TR*, repeat from *-* until end of row. ss into beginning chain remembering to leave 2 ch gap. R 3: ch1 and *2 sc in ch2 space from previous round, 2sc into next ch2 space, sc into TR*, repeat from *-* until end of round and join with ss to beginning chain.

Paula 19.01.2016 - 19:31:

I really like this hat, but can't do the diagram. Could you put it in words. I've got the ribbon finished but can't continue.

DROPS Design 20.01.2016 kl. 11:45:

Dear Paula, there is only a diagram version to this pattern, start reading diagram from the bottom corner on the right side and read every row from the right towards the left (= in the round = from RS). You will find text to each st/group of st just above diagram. And remember your DROPS store may provide you any furter personnal assistance. Happy crocheting!

Gail Slaughter 15.12.2015 - 20:46:

Sorry I meant it Did come 4x4

Gail Slaughter 15.12.2015 - 20:44:

Thank youbso much for your response I did rhe gauge and it didncome to 4x4. So I attempted to do the ribbon again same result I can't figure out what it is I'm not getting Is there any way you can help me? Video or anything? 1sc in first 3 rows 2 sc next etc: I have tried just the ribbed rows facing me then I tried those front and back. What am I not getting Please help! Gail

DROPS Design 16.12.2015 kl. 09:25:

Dear Mrs Slaughter, to work 1 sc in each of the next 3 rows, 2 sc in the next row, you need to have worked a total of 21 rows approx. with hdc for the ribbon - adjust number of sc worked around if necessary to get approx. 83 sc at the end of the round, then adjust to 80 sc on next row. Happy crocheting!

Gail Slaughter 07.12.2015 - 06:00:

First I love this pattern but I am having a hard time with the ribbon! I did the 19 1/4 inches but when I attempt to do the 1sc in 3 rows and 2sc in next I don't get 83-90 I get much less!I then used a smaller and counted the rows to at least get the 83 but nw the ribbon is way too large PLEASE HELP! I wanted to have it ready dor Christmas. Thanking You in advance. Gail

DROPS Design 07.12.2015 kl. 11:44:

Dear Mrs Slaughter, remember to check your tension, you should get 16 dc x 9 rows = 4"x4" so that 83 sc = approx. 21". Happy crocheting!

Laura 06.12.2015 - 09:21:

Hi, thanks for the pattern it looks amazing and i'm trying to make it but i don't understand how to "work veritcally" the patterns a1 and a2. are there any tutorials on this please or would you be so kind and explain? thank you

DROPS Design 07.12.2015 kl. 10:30:

Dear Laura, A.1 only shows how to finish & start the round: replace 1st dc (UK-English) with 1 ch and 1st dtr with 4 ch. Finish round with a sl st in the 1st ch at beg of dc round /in the 4th ch at beg of dtr round. Repeat then A.2 around. Happy crocheting!
