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. There are different terms for crocheting in American and British English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in British English, please click here.
INFORMATION FOR PATTERN:

CROCHET INFO:
Replace first double crochet on round with 3 chain stitches, finish round with 1 slip stitch in third chain stitch at beginning of round.
Replace first single crochet on round with 1 chain stitch, finish round with 1 slip stitch in first chain stitch at beginning of round.

COLOR PATTERN:
See diagram A.4. Diagram shows colors in pattern. 1 square = 1 single crochet.

COLOR CHANGE TIP:
When changing color work as follows: Work last single crochet with first color but wait with last pull through, switch to next color and work last pull through with the new color, then work next single crochet. This way there will be a nice transition when changing color.
When working with two colors place strand for the color not worked over stitches from previous round, work around the strand so that it is hidden and follows when working.
----------------------------------------------------------

HAT:
Work in the round top down. Begin with a flat, oval top, then work down the hat (crown) before working an edge in multi-colored pattern and then the brim.

TOP OF HAT:
Read CROCHET INFO! Begin at the arrow in the middle of A.1 and work on hook size 3 mm / C with white as follows:
4 chain stitches, form a ring with 1 slip stitch in the first chain stitch worked, work 14 chain stitches, work 1 slip stitch in 4th chain stitch from hook. You now have a chain stitch row with a loop in each end.
Work next round as follows: 1 slip stitch in the first of the 10 chain stitch on row, 3 chain stitch (= 1 double crochet), 1 double crochet in each of the next 9 chain stitches, work A.2 around loop (begin with 1st row in diagram), work 1 double crochet in each of the 10 chain stitch (i.e. on opposite side of where 10 double crochets were worked first), work A.3 around loop in the other side and finish with 1 slip stitch in 3rd chain stitch at beginning for round. Continue the pattern like this until 6 rounds have been worked in total. A.1 to A.3 are now done and there are 104 double crochets on round in both sizes. Then work an edge at the top around the hat as explained below.

EGDE AT THE TOP AROUND HAT:
Work 1 round double crochets with 1 double crochet in every double crochet and 4 double crochet in the chain space in the middle of A.2 (work 1 double crochet in both the first and the last chain stitch and 2 double crochets in the middle chain stitch), but on this round work only in front loop of stitch (stitch loop closest to you) = 108 double crochets on round. Insert 1 marker thread between 2 double crochets in the middle of A.2 (= mid front of hat) and move the marker thread upwards when working.
Work 1 more round with double crochets but now work every double crochet through both the double crochet from previous round (through both front and back loop) and in addition through stitch loop visible on the wrong side of piece. This gives a more distinct edge around the top part of hat. Then work the crown as explained below:

CROWN:
Work double crochets in the round with 1 double crochet in every double crochet (work through both stitch loops).
AT THE SAME TIME on 1st round increase 1 double crochet mid front by working 2 double crochets in last double crochet before marker thread. Increase like this 4-8 times in total in S/M: On every other round, and in L/XL: On every round = 112-116 double crochets. NOTE: When increasing work 2 double crochets alternately in first double crochet after marker thread and last double crochet before marker thread.
When piece measures 6-7 cm from edge at the top, work COLOR PATTERN – see explanation above (= 28-29 repetitions of 4 stitches) and read COLOR CHANGE TIP.
NOTE: On 2nd and 7th round work in back loop of stitch from previous round.
AT THE SAME TIME on last round in A.4 increase 0-4 single crochets evenly (increase 1 single crochet by working 2 single crochets in 1 stitch) = 112-120 single crochets.
When A.4 is done, work the brim with white as explained below.

BRIM:
Remember CROCHET INFO!
ROUND 1: * Work 1 double crochet in the first 7-7 double crochets, 2 double crochets in next double crochet *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 126-135 double crochets.
ROUND 2: Work 1 double crochet in every double crochet.
ROUND 3: * Work 1 double crochet in the first 8-8 double crochets, 2 double crochets in next double crochet *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 140-150 double crochets.
ROUND 4: * Work 1 double crochet in the first 9-9 double crochets, 2 double crochets in next double crochet *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 154-165 double crochets.
ROUND 5: Work 1 double crochet in every double crochet.
ROUND 6: Work 1 single crochet in every double crochet = 154-165 single crochets.
Fasten off. Brim measures approx. 5 cm / 2''.

Hallo, bitte wie ist folgende Zeile zu verstehen: "in beide Maschenglieder der Vor-Runde und zusätzlich in das Mascheinglied, das auf der Rückseite der Arbeit sichtbar ist, einstechen" Ich hab leider keine Idee welches Maschenglied ich hier sehen soll :(

DROPS Design 24.08.2018 kl. 10:44:

Hallo Michi, damit ist das Maschenglied gemeint, in das in der vorherigen Runde nicht eingestochen wurde. Sie haben ja in der Runde davor nur in das vordere Maschenglied eingestochen, das hintere Maschenglied liegt noch auf der Rückseite der Arbeit. Wenn Sie auch noch in dieses Maschenglied einstechen, wölbt sich die Stäbchenrunde, die Sie aktuell häkeln, etwas nach vorne bzw. bekommt eine leichte Rundung und führt dadurch zu dem etwas markanteren Rand. Gutes Gelingen und viel Spaß mit dem Hut!

Hola. No tengo claro como realizar la 2ª vuelta de la orilla, donde dice " adicionalmente, a través del bucle del punto visible en el lado revés de la pieza". Muchas gracias por toda vuestra ayuda. Saludos.

DROPS Design 18.09.2018 kl. 11:16:

Hola Monica. Para marcar más la parte de la orilla del sombrero pinchamos en lugar de en los dos bucles del punto (como habitual) un poco más abajo, cogiendo el tercer bucle del punto ( que es más visible por el lado revés). Es decir, si le das la vuelta a la labor y la miras por el lado revés, el primer bucle de ese punto que se vea sería el que hay que trabajar

Loly Aguilar Araujo 12.08.2018 - 22:04:

Hola! Quisiera saber si en la segunda vuelta de la orilla en la parte de arriba alrededor del sombrero ,si está vuelta también la tengo que empezar con tres cadenas gracias . Podríais poner un vídeo con esta explicación porque aunque explicas muy bien ,para las que somos principiantes nos cuesta entender .siempre que hago algo vuestro compro vuestros hilos pero a través de internet

DROPS Design 14.08.2018 kl. 20:09:

Hola Loly. EN TODA LA LABOR las vueltas con puntos altos comienzan con 3 puntos de cadeneta y las vueltas con puntos bajos empiezan con 1 punto de cadeneta.

Pilar Diaz 18.07.2018 - 18:20:

Hola. Que debo hacer para adaptarlo a un hilo de más grosor?

DROPS Design 31.07.2018 kl. 11:48:

Hola Pilar. Para usar un hilo con mayor grosor vas a necesitar menos vueltas para trabajar cada parte del sombrero. Elige el tamaño de ganchillo adecuado para el hilo con que vayas a trabajar.
