QUESTION - PETITE BRIMMED CAP - PATTERN STATES A DC AND Fpdc IN SAME STITCH. I HAVE DONE A FPDC ONLY. IS THAT WHAT YOU MEAN. ALSO DO YOU HAVE WRITTEN DIRECTIONS OR A VIDEO TELLING ME HOW TO DO IT LEFT HANDED. i DID A DC AND THEN THE FPDC ON THE SAME STITCH BUT IT DOESN'T WORK ON ROW 6. CAN YOU RESPOND TO ME. THANK YOU. MS. E. G. HEBBLEWAITE

So I made one, not very hard at all. However you really need to read. The steps are numbered differently than the rows for the body of the cap. I ripped mine out because based on the way step 12 is written my work was off and not really making much sense. For whatever reason I also ended up with one additonal repeat, but that's ok, I used thin yarn and a bigger hook and came out with a teen to adult size hat. I will be doing this again and modifying it so I can make a similar looke EVEN FASTER. THANKS

This hat should have been easy to make but it wasn't because the instructions didn't make sense after round 6. In round 7 I found that the fpdc didn't line up with the previous row. I thought that I was making a mistake so I took it apart, many times. It only took me 2 hours to realize that I was reading the instructions just fine and that the instrustions are wrong. I was so mad...I hate wasting my time! These instructions need to be corrected and reposted. I wish someone would make sure that the patterns they create are correct and simple enough to understand.

I'm curious if there was an errata. I'd like to make this, it's very cute and campy.

I would like to make this hat but there is nowhere where you explain how to make a FPDC (Front post Double Crochet).

try this web-site http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yIu4HfUpvsY

@guillearanda 0765703, we have lots of helpful tutorial videos on our YouTube channel, as well as the channel of our sister site AllFreeCrochet! Here is a link to some videos related to this stitch: http://www.youtube.com/user/AllFreeCrochet/search?query=front+post+double+crochet Hope this helps! --Editors of FaveCrafts

I learned to make a fpdc on you tube. It was very easy to watch a video about it rather than to read and figure it out.

I am having a problem with row 10- It starts with "twice" am I missing instructions for some of this row? '

@jbea1973 4931135, I'm sorry to hear of your trouble. I have two options for you: 1. You can contact the pattern designer directly for help. The designer is specified in the byline. 2. I might also suggest that you try posting your question to our sites Facebook page. It is monitored by the editor and is a great resource for helpful tips and suggestions from our Facebook friends; perhaps they can offer some guidance! Here is the link: http://www.facebook.com/FaveCrafts --editors of FaveCrafts

I'm having trouble with Round 10 of this pattern. Had correct no. of stitches on rd.9, but on this Rd I have about 7-8 to many. I have ripped out about 12 times and still can't find my mistake, Help

Hi, doroth1 6715725. We're happy to hear you enjoy this pattern! The instructions for the brim are below the instructions for the cap. In the "Finishing" instructions it says to use the brim AS a template; there is no brim template. Hope this helps! --Editors of FaveCrafts

I like this patterns very much and is soo cute! I was looking for the brim template?
