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.

INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.4.

CROCHET INFO:
Each round of double crochets starts with 3 chain stitches (replaces the first double crochet) and ends with 1 slip stitch in the 3rd chain stitch at the beginning of the round.
The round with treble crochets in A.1 starts with 4 chain stitches (replaces the first treble crochet) and ends with 1 slip stitch in the 4th chain stitch at the beginning of the round.

INCREASE TIP:
Work 2 double crochets in the same stitch.

DECREASE TIP:
Work 2 double crochets together as follows: * Make 1 yarn over, insert the hook through the next stitch, pick up the strand, make 1 yarn over and pull the strand through the first 2 loops on the hook *, work from *-* 1 more time, make 1 yarn over and pull the strand through all 3 loops on the hook (= 1 double crochet decreased).

COLOR CHANGE:
To get a neat transition when changing color, work the last slip stitch of the round with the new color as follows: Insert the hook into the 3rd chain stitch at the beginning of the round, pick up the new color, make a yarn over with the new color and pull it through the loops on the hook.
----------------------------------------------------------

HAT:
The piece is worked in the round, top down; i.e. you work from the top of the hat down, working the brim in the round to finish. The inner part of the flower is worked at the same time as the hat and the petals are worked afterwards.
Work 2 chain stitches with hook size 4.5 mm/US 7 and white.
ROUND 1: Work 12 double crochets in the first chain stitch - read CROCHET INFO!
ROUND 2: Work 2 double crochets in each double crochet = 24 double crochets.
ROUND 3: Work * 2 double crochets in the first/next double crochet, 1 double crochet in the next double crochet, *, work from *-* to end of round = 36 double crochets.
ROUND 4: Work * 2 double crochets in the first/next double crochet, 1 double crochet in each of the next 2 double crochets *, work from *-* to end of round = 48 double crochets.
ROUND 5: Work * 2 double crochets in the first/next double crochet, 1 double crochet in each of the next 3 double crochets *, work from *-* to end of round = 60 double crochets. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE!
ROUND 6: Work * 2 double crochets in the first/next double crochet, 1 double crochet in each of the next 4 double crochets *, work from *-* to end of round = 72 double crochets.
Now size S/M has finished its increases, continue increasing in size L/XL as follows:
ROUND 7: Work * 2 double crochets in the first/next double crochet, 1 double crochet in each of the next 5 double crochets *, work from *-* to end of round = 84 double crochets.

BOTH SIZES:
Work 1 round with 1 double crochet in each double crochet AT THE SAME TIME as you increase 4-0 double crochets evenly on round – read INCREASE TIP = 76-84 double crochets. Work 2 rounds with 1 double crochet in each double crochet. The piece measures approx. 10-11 cm from the middle out.
Now work A.1 (= 4 stitches) over all stitches (= 19-21 times). On the last round of A.1 decrease 4 double crochets evenly on round – read DECREASE TIP = 72-80 double crochets. When A.1 has been worked 1 time in height, work A.2 and A.3 as follows:
Work with powder pink – read COLOR CHANGE, as follows:
ROUND 1: Work 1 double crochet in each double crochet.
ROUND 2: Work A.2 as follows: ** Work 1 double crochet in each of the first/next 3 double crochets, work 2 double crochets together in the next double crochet and around these double crochets work A.3 (= flower) as follows (see arrow in A.3, the flower starts here): Around the last double crochet worked in A.2 work as follows: * Work 4 chain stitches, 1 slip stitch *, work from *-* a total of 3 times, then work around the next-to-last double crochet worked in A.2 as follows: Work from *-* a total of 2 times, work 1 chain stitch, then work A.2 as follows: Work 1 double crochet in each of the next 4 double crochets **. Work from **-** to end of round = 9-10 flowers. You will work the petals around the chain-spaces later (= A.4).
Change to white.
ROUND 3: * Work 1 double crochet in each of the first/next 3 double crochets, work 1 double crochet around the chain stitch worked after the flower, work 1 double crochet in each of the next 4 double crochets *, work from *-* AT THE SAME TIME as you increase 18-10 double crochets evenly on round = 90 double crochets.
When A.2 and A.3 have been worked 1 time in height, the piece measures approx. 18-19 cm. Now work the brim with white as follows:
ROUND 1: * 2 double crochets in the first/next double crochet, 1 double crochet in each of the next 8 double crochets *, work from *-* to end of round = 100 double crochets.
ROUND 2: * 2 double crochets in the first/next double crochet, 1 double crochet in each of the next 9 double crochets *, work from *-* to end of round = 110 double crochets.
ROUND 3: * 2 double crochets in the first/next double crochet, 1 double crochet in each of the next 10 double crochets *, work from *-* to end of round = 120 double crochets.
ROUND 4: * 2 double crochets in the first/next double crochet, 1 double crochet in each of the next 11 double crochets *, work from *-* to end of round = 130 double crochets.
ROUND 5: * 2 double crochets in the first/next double crochet, 1 double crochet in each of the next 12 double crochets *, work from *-* to end of round = 140 double crochets.
ROUND 6: * 2 double crochets in the first/next double crochet, 1 double crochet in each of the next 13 double crochets *, work from *-* to end of round = 150 double crochets.
ROUND 7: * 2 double crochets in the first/next double crochet, 1 double crochet in each of the next 14 double crochets *, work from *-* to end of round = 160 double crochets.
ROUND 8: * 2 double crochets in the first/next double crochet, 1 double crochet in each of the next 15 double crochets *, work from *-* to end of round = 170 double crochets.
ROUND 9: * 2 double crochets in the first/next double crochet, 1 double crochet in each of the next 16 double crochets *, work from *-* to end of round = 180 double crochets.
Cut and fasten strands.

FLOWER:
Around each chain-space worked in A.3 work A.4 with light old pink. When A.4 has been worked around all 5 chain-spaces in 1 flower, cut the strand, tie the ends together and fasten. Work around all A.3s like this.

The hat is worked in the round but the pattern does not indicate making a ring. It just says "work 2 chains stitches"

Dear Karen, yes, that is right. You work 2 chain sts, in the first of them work 12 treble crochets - this will make a base for circle and then continue work in round. Happy crocheting!

Buongiorno, la ringrazio. Sí, ho controllato il campione ma il mio lavoro risulta essere un po' piú "pesante". Secondo lei potrebbe essere utile irrigidire la tesa con l'amido? Grazie.

Buongiorno Chiara, l'amido potrebbe esserd una buona soluzione, oppure può provare a immergere la tesa in acqua zuccherata e lasciar asciugare. Buon lavoro!

Ho realizzato il modello 190-20 secondo le istruzioni. Ho utilizzato il filato Paris e l'uncinetto 4,5 mm. Mi sembra che il modello in foto sia stato realizzato con un filato più sottile rispetto a quello indicato. Se é effettivamente così, vorrei sapere quale filo e quale uncinetto sono stati utilizzati per il modello. Grazie.

DROPS Design 25.06.2018 kl. 23:31:

Buonasera Chiara, il modello è lavorato con il filato e l'uncinetto indicati nelle spiegazioni. Ha controllato che il suo campione corrispondesse a quello indicato prima di iniziare a lavorare? Buon lavoro!
