Would like to see video on this pattern, not sure what they mean by ( Leg ).

I used the video and figured out the stitches no problem. I'm about half way done but this is not looking like a hat!!! It looks more like a frilly doily. Did I do something wrong or will it take shape as I continue???

I found this pattern a year ago, I think it is one of the prettiest hats , I had a litlle trouble at first but after looking at the video it was very easy to fallow, I don't even remember how many I made and gave them away as presents, know I have started again and I am on my third one. Thank you very much for posting the video. Carmen

There's a video on youtube for this specific pattern. It is easy but my problem is it always comes out big. I went a size down on the hook and still too big. I'll go another hook size down and if it still too big I give up!

I hesitate to start this pattern as I have never seen "leg" in a crochet list of terms or stitches. Any one know what this means? I love the hat & would love to make it if possible. I'd appreciate a video!

I also had a hard time with this pattern, I revisited it though and found it easier and workable this time. As confusing as it is, it does work and I can't think of a better way to describe the stitch.

This pattern is one of the worst to try to work. I'm not a novice with crochet and I even asked for help from a fellow-crocheter and we together couldn't figure it out. I'll look for another pattern until this one is fixed. Too bad!

The instructions are correct and very clear. The stitch pattern is just challenging. http://kimguzman.wordpress.com/2011/09/18/tutorial-charleston-cloche/
