INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

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

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

DECREASE TIP:
Work 2 treble 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 treble crochet decreased).

COLOUR CHANGE:
To get a neat transition when changing colour, work the last slip stitch of the round with the new colour as follows: Insert the hook into the 3rd chain stitch at the beginning of the round, pick up the new colour, make a yarn over with the new colour 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 and white.
ROUND 1: Work 12 treble crochets in the first chain stitch - read CROCHET INFO!
ROUND 2: Work 2 treble crochets in each treble crochet = 24 treble crochets.
ROUND 3: Work * 2 treble crochets in the first/next treble crochet, 1 treble crochet in the next treble crochet, *, work from *-* to end of round = 36 treble crochets.
ROUND 4: Work * 2 treble crochets in the first/next treble crochet, 1 treble crochet in each of the next 2 treble crochets *, work from *-* to end of round = 48 treble crochets.
ROUND 5: Work * 2 treble crochets in the first/next treble crochet, 1 treble crochet in each of the next 3 treble crochets *, work from *-* to end of round = 60 treble crochets. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION!
ROUND 6: Work * 2 treble crochets in the first/next treble crochet, 1 treble crochet in each of the next 4 treble crochets *, work from *-* to end of round = 72 treble crochets.
Now size S/M has finished its increases, continue increasing in size L/XL as follows:
ROUND 7: Work * 2 treble crochets in the first/next treble crochet, 1 treble crochet in each of the next 5 treble crochets *, work from *-* to end of round = 84 treble crochets.

BOTH SIZES:
Work 1 round with 1 treble crochet in each treble crochet AT THE SAME TIME as you increase 4-0 treble crochets evenly on round – read INCREASE TIP = 76-84 treble crochets. Work 2 rounds with 1 treble crochet in each treble 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 treble crochets evenly on round – read DECREASE TIP = 72-80 treble crochets. When A.1 has been worked 1 time in height, work A.2 and A.3 as follows:
Work with powder pink – read COLOUR CHANGE, as follows:
ROUND 1: Work 1 treble crochet in each treble crochet.
ROUND 2: Work A.2 as follows: ** Work 1 treble crochet in each of the first/next 3 treble crochets, work 2 treble crochets together in the next treble crochet and around these treble crochets work A.3 (= flower) as follows (see arrow in A.3, the flower starts here): Around the last treble 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 treble 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 treble crochet in each of the next 4 treble 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 treble crochet in each of the first/next 3 treble crochets, work 1 treble crochet around the chain stitch worked after the flower, work 1 treble crochet in each of the next 4 treble crochets *, work from *-* AT THE SAME TIME as you increase 18-10 treble crochets evenly on round = 90 treble 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 treble crochets in the first/next treble crochet, 1 treble crochet in each of the next 8 treble crochets *, work from *-* to end of round = 100 treble crochets. 
ROUND 2: * 2 treble crochets in the first/next treble crochet, 1 treble crochet in each of the next 9 treble crochets *, work from *-* to end of round = 110 treble crochets. 
ROUND 3: * 2 treble crochets in the first/next treble crochet, 1 treble crochet in each of the next 10 treble crochets *, work from *-* to end of round = 120 treble crochets.
ROUND 4: * 2 treble crochets in the first/next treble crochet, 1 treble crochet in each of the next 11 treble crochets *, work from *-* to end of round = 130 treble crochets.
ROUND 5: * 2 treble crochets in the first/next treble crochet, 1 treble crochet in each of the next 12 treble crochets *, work from *-* to end of round = 140 treble crochets.
ROUND 6: * 2 treble crochets in the first/next treble crochet, 1 treble crochet in each of the next 13 treble crochets *, work from *-* to end of round = 150 treble crochets.
ROUND 7: * 2 treble crochets in the first/next treble crochet, 1 treble crochet in each of the next 14 treble crochets *, work from *-* to end of round = 160 treble crochets.
ROUND 8: * 2 treble crochets in the first/next treble crochet, 1 treble crochet in each of the next 15 treble crochets *, work from *-* to end of round = 170 treble crochets.
ROUND 9: * 2 treble crochets in the first/next treble crochet, 1 treble crochet in each of the next 16 treble crochets *, work from *-* to end of round = 180 treble 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.

Jeg har hæklet hatten i str L-XL.......hovedformen passer, men “skyggen” falder ned, og klasker......skal den stives med noget for at opnå den ombukkede effekt?

DROPS Design 03.05.2019 kl. 10:39:

Hej Tina, Det skal egentlig ikke være nødvendigt hvis du hækler den i DROPS Paris og hækler lidt stramt ifølge hæklefastheden i opskriften. God fornøjelse :)

Sehr, sehr lieb und hübsch

Karen 03.07.2018 - 17:16:

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

DROPS Design 03.07.2018 kl. 21:32:

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.

DROPS Design 26.06.2018 kl. 14:55:

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!
