Gauge: 18 half double crochet (hdc) and 14 rows = 10 x 10 cm [4" x 4"].

Decreasing: Decrease by working over 1 less st.
Increasing: Increase 1 st by working 1 new ch and on the next row work 1 new hdc in the ch.
Turning the work: Before the end of every row ch 1 to turn the work with. Replace the first hdc on the next row with ch 2.

Bottom: The front and back are worked in one piece, beginning at the front. Ch 48 (56). Work half doubles (hdc) across row, beginning in the 3rd st = 46 (54) sts. Dec 1 st at each side 2 (2) times every row, then 13 (16) times every other row = 16 (18) sts, the work measures approx. 20 (24) cm [7-7/8" (9.5")]. Work 6 (7) cm [2-3/8" (2.75")] even, the work measures 26 (31) cm [10.25" (12.25")]. Measure the work from here. Inc 1 st at each side 4 (4) times every row, then 14 (17) times every other row, then 2 (2) times every row = 56 (64) sts, height of the back = 24 (28) cm [9.5" (11")]. Tie off the strand. Make a chain st cord about 130 cm [51-1/8"] long, thread it through the first row of sts on the front and last row of sts on the back and tie at one side.

Bra: Ch 43 (47). Turn, work 1 row of hdc beginning in the 3rd st = 41 (45) sts. On the 2nd row work 3 hdc in the center st = 43 (47) sts. Dec 1 st at each side:
Size S/M: 2 times every other row, then 18 times every row
Size M/L: 2 times every other row, 15 times every row, then 5 times alternately every and every other row
= 3 sts. The bra piece is approx. 17 (21) cm [6.75" (8.25")]. Tie off the strand.
Crochet a second one.

CROCHETED HAT:

Garnstudio SAFRAN,
100% Egyptian cotton, 50 g/160 m./174 yards
100 (100) g color no. 18, natural

DROPS 2.5 mm [US B] crochet hook, or size needed to obtain correct gauge.

Gauge: 20 half double crochet (hdc) and 15 rows = 10 x 10 cm [4" x 4"]

Hat: Ch 4 and join into a ring. Begin all rows with ch 2 which replaces the first hdc and end all rows with 1 slip st.
1st row: Crochet 6 hdc into the ring.
2nd row: Crochet 2 hdc into each hdc in the previous row = 12 hdc.
3rd row: * 2 hdc in 1st hdc, 1 hdc in next hdc *, repeat from * - * throughout the row = 6 increases = 18 hdc.
4th row: * 2 hdc in 1st hdc, 2 hdc *, repeat from * - * throughout the row.
5th row: * 2 hdc in 1st hdc, 3 hdc *, repeat from * - * throughout the row.
Continue to increase 6 hdc every row in this manner, with 1 more hdc between the increases every row.

When the hat measures 9 (11) cm [3.5" (4.25")] from the center and the number of sts is divisible by 6, work the next row as follows: ch 5, * skip over 5 sts, in the 6th st work 5 trebles, ch 1 *, repeat * - *, finish with 4 trebles in the first st and 1 slip st in the 4th of the first ch 5.
Now work 2 rows of hdc, one st in each st.
Repeat these 3 rows 3 times, but on the last row of hdc decrease 12 hdc evenly distributed on the row by skipping over 1 hdc per decreased st. The work measures approx. 17 (19) cm [6.75" (7.5")] from the center.
Now work the Hat Border as follows:
1st row: * 2 hdc, 2 hdc into next st * - repeat * - * throughout the row.
2nd-10th row: 1 hdc in each st.
Cut off and tie off the strand.
