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

HAT:
The piece is worked top down. Crochet 4 ch on hook size 4.5 mm with Nepal and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch.
ROUND 1: Work 18 tr in ring – read CROCHET INFO.
ROUND 2: Work 2 tr in every tr = 36 tr.

Then work A.1 as follows:
A.1 is repeated 9 times in total on round. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION!
ROUND 1: Work * 2 tr in first/next tr, 2 DTR CABLE - see explanation above, over the next 2 tr, 1 tr in next tr *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 45 sts.
ROUND 2: Work * 1 tr in each of the first/next 2 tr, 1 RELIEF tr – see explanation above – around each of the next 2 dtr (= cable), 2 tr in next tr *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 54 tr.
ROUND 3: Work * 1 tr in first/next tr, 4 DTR CABLE - see explanation above, over the next 4 tr, 1 tr in next tr *, repeat from *-* the entire round.
ROUND 4: Work * 2 tr in first/next tr, 1 relief tr around each of the next 4 dtr, 1 tr in next tr *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 63 tr.
ROUND 5: Work * 1 tr in each of the first/next 2 tr, 4 dtr cable over the next 4 tr, 2 tr in next tr *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 72 tr.
ROUND 6: Work * 2 tr in first tr, 1 tr in next tr, 1 relief tr around each of the next 4 dtr, 1 tr in each of the next 2 tr *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 81 tr.
ROUND 7: Work * 1 tr in each of the first/next 2 tr, 6 TRIPLE TR CABLE over the next 6 tr, 2 tr in next tr *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 90 tr.
ROUND 8: Work * 1 tr in each of the first/next 2 tr, 1 relief tr around each of the next 6 triple tr, 1 tr in each of the next 2 tr *, repeat from *-* the entire round.

There are now 4 tr between each cable. Repeat 8th-10th round (= A.1A) until piece measures 21 cm, adjust to finish with first round in A.1A (= 8th round). Work 1 dc in every tr AT THE SAME TIME dec 10 sts evenly (i.e. work every 8th and 9th st tog) = 80 dc. Work 2 rounds with 1 dc in every dc. Work 1 round with REVERSE CROCHET - see explanation above. Fasten off.

Work 3 ch, 1 tr in first ch in ch-ring (= 2 tr), * 1 tr in each of the next 5 ch, skip 1 ch *, repeat from *-* until 3 ch remain, 1 tr in last 3 ch - READ CROCHET INFO = 80-90 tr. Work 1 tr in every tr AT THE SAME TIME inc 10 tr evenly (i.e. inc 1 tr every 8th-9th tr) – READ INCREASE TIP = 90-100 tr. Then work as follows: * 1 tr in each of the first/next 4 tr, work 6 TRIPLE TR CABLE - see explanation above (= A.2), over the next 6 tr *, repeat from *-* the entire round (= 9-10 times). Repeat A.2A vertically. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION! Continue pattern like this until piece measures 10-11 cm. Work next round as follows: * 1 tr in each of the first 3 tr, 2 tr in next tr, A.2A over the next 6 sts as before *, repeat from *-* the entire round (= 9-10 times) = 99-110 tr on round (incl cable tr). Repeat this inc every 4 cm alternately before and after A.2A, 2 more times = 117-130 tr (incl cable tr). Then work * 1 tr in each of the first/next 7 tr, A.2A over the next 6 sts as before *, repeat from *-* until piece measures 23-24 cm. Adjust to finish with next to last round in A.2A.

Good morning, I discovered crochet some months ago I am since hooked ! This site is great and the tutorials really help, thank you ! I have made this beautiful hat for my daughter and she loves it. But It seems that the written explanation doesn't match the chart in the UK version. I have done my own version with what I understood from the pattern and my daughter is happy with it.

Dear Claudia, you will find all explanation to each cable under written pattern and at the very bottom of the page you will find videos showing how to work the cables. Happy crocheting!

Mari 20.07.2016 - 13:49:

Love it!

NYC 20.07.2016 - 09:35:

Beautiful! I love the variety of your patterns. I hope to be able to do both crochet and knit.

Maria 29.01.2016 - 20:19:

Avrei bisogno del vostro aiuto perché non riesco ad interpretare le spiegazioni date per i vari giri del diagramma A.1 Cosa significa: 1 m.a. in ognuna delle prime 2 m.a./delle 2 m.a. successive ecc. ecc. Non capisco quello che viene detto dopo il tratto verticale, cioè / e dato che questa parte di spiegazione si ripete per quasi tutti i giri, non riesco a capirla, soprattutto se la confronto con il disegno grafico del diagramma. non so se mi sono spiegata. Grazie mille. Maria

DROPS Design 30.01.2016 kl. 08:08:

Buongiorno Maria. La prima volta che lavora le indicazioni tra gli * *, lavora, p.es. 1 m.a nella prime 2 m del giro (quindi vale l'indicazione che precede la /); le volte successive, sempre sullo stesso giro, lavora 1 m.a nelle 2 m successive a quella dove si trova con l'uncinetto (quindi vale l'indicazione dopo la /). Così ogni volta che incontra questo tipo di istruzione. Buon lavoro!

I just finished this hat for my friend with cancer. ( She has become very stylish at the clinic with the other patterns I have done from your site). I love this hat with its' texture it is very beautiful and fun for the eye. The edging frames it all in with an extra touch of texture. Wonderful !!!! The cabled pattern was a joy to crochet and I can only imagine will be full of the warmth my friend needs this time of year. thank you.

Rebecca Gibbs 28.05.2015 - 21:40:
