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.


See diagrams A.1, A.2, A.3. A4 and A.5. Choose diagram for your size.




The piece is worked in the round, top down.

Use crochet hook size 5 mm and light grey. Work diagram A.1, choose diagram for your size. When A.1 has been completed, there are 22-24 treble crochets on the round. Now work A.2 and A.3 as follows:
Work A.2 over the first 2 treble crochets, A.3 is repeated to end of round = a total of 10-11 times in width.
When A.2 and A.3 have been completed, there are 66-72 treble crochets on the round. Now work A.4 over A.2 and A.5 over A.3. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION!
Work like this until the piece measures approx. 17 cm; adjust so that the next round is the same as the next-to-last round in the diagrams. Change to grey and work 4 rounds of A.4 and A.5 as before. Change to medium grey and work 2 rounds of A.4 and A.5 as before. Work 2 rounds with 1 double crochet in each stitch to end of round. The piece measures approx. 23 cm. Cut and fasten the strand.


= work 4 chain stitches; form them into a ring with 1 slip stitch in the first chain stitch
= 3 chain stitches; these replace the first treble crochet on the round, finish the round with 1 slip stitch in the third chain stitch
= 1 treble crochet around the chain-stitch ring/ 1 treble crochet in treble crochet
= 1 treble crochet around the treble crochet in front: insert the hook from the right side, take the hook around the treble crochet, back to the right side, pick up the strand with hook and work as a normal treble crochet
= treble crochet around treble crochet behind: insert the hook from the wrong side, take the hook around the treble crochet and back to the wrong side, pick up the strand with the hook and work as a normal treble crochet

La quantité de gris clair n’est-elle pas erronée? Je viens de terminer la 1ère pelote et je suis loin des 17 cm requis avant de changer de couleur. 100g serait plus adapté.

Bonjour Mme Decloux, avez-vous bien le bon échantillon de 14 brides x 8,5 tours = 10 x 10 cm?

Edith 20.01.2019 - 15:05:

Ik loop vast bij A4/A5, moet ik hierin nog meerderen?? Of haak ik steeds A4 en A5 door in hetzelfde patroon totdat ik 17cm heb?

DROPS Design 23.01.2019 kl. 10:22:

Dag Edith,

Alle meerderingen zijn al in de telpatronen verwerkt, dus je kunt gewoon de steken van het telpatroon volgen. In A.4 en A.5 zijn geen meerderingen verwerkt, dus je breit gewoon door tot de gewenste lengte.

Ciao, devo realizzare questo modello per un uomo, me lo consigliate o no? Grazie

DROPS Design 10.01.2019 kl. 10:30:

Buongiorno Helenya. Sì può lavorare il berretto anche per un uomo. Per un'assistenza più personalizzata per adattare le misure, può rivolgersi al suo rivenditore Drops di fiducia. Buon lavoro!

NOTE: This pattern is written in American English. All measurements in charts are in cm. Your patterns always include this note and I think it inherently makes the statement that the pattern is in American English incorrect. We use inches, not cm--so if you are writing for Americans, you should have all the instructions for us in inches.

17 cm, c'est le diamètre ou à partir du centre ? A bientôt merci d'avance

DROPS Design 15.10.2018 kl. 08:40:

Bonjour Vanessa, les 17 cm se mesurent en hauteur, à partir du milieu du début du bonnet (pas de diamètre). Bon crochet!

Czy „słupki nakładane przodem” i „słupki nakładane tyłem” to słupki reliefowe?

DROPS Design 06.09.2018 kl. 18:11:

Witaj Olu. Tak to słupki reliefowe. Miłej pracy nad robótką!

Samlet vægt? Hvis man nu vil lave en ensfarvet eller en totalt multifarvet reste-hue.

DROPS Design 30.07.2018 kl. 13:56:

Hei Lea. Vi har dessverre ikke mulighet til å regne om dette for deg. Men om du ser på bildet ser du at det partiet med lys grått er større enn det partiet med grått og mellomgrått sammenlagt, du kan derfor gå utifra at du hvertfall ikke trenger med enn 100 gram garn for denne luen. God fornøyelse
