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

Hi there, There is a video tutorial on Kim Guzman's YouTube channel. Simply search Charleston Cloche on YouTube and you'll find it. Thanks! - Julia from FaveCrafts

Re: leg of the cluster. A cluster is made of long stitches such as hdc or dc or tr, right? So each one of these long stitches are one of the "legs", of the "columns", of the "poles" or whatever long object you want to use as an analogy. One could say "first part" and "second part", but saying 'leg' is more descriptive. The words in parentheses (first leg, second leg) are there to clarify, but if they confuse you you can just skip/ignore them, it won't make any difference to the pattern.

Here it is, honey http://youtu.be/Xv2JlQxwNkw

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???

Hi there, I have updated the pattern instructions so that should help you. Leave another comment if you're still confused - thanks!

Where did you find a video for this pattern, Mindy? I really want to make this beanie, but I am completely confused with this pattern. I can't tell you how frustrated I am also because I can't find the video that you refer to here. Can you give me a better idea of how to search for this. I'd REALLY appreciate it. Thanks Deb

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!

Same here, I'm down to a G hook and trying to keep 3rd row very tight, otherwise I'm getting too much fullness.

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!

You can find this pattern through the red heart site, instructions are clearer. http://www.redheart.com/free-patterns/cha == rleston-cloche

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.

Heather, do you know what "leg" means in this pattern?

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/

would be nice to see viedo, very hard to understand instructions, I wanted to make this hat very badly

These instruction are terrible unclear.

Need better instructions starting at Row 4. Nice hat, video would be helpful

Round 4 of this pattern is very confusing cannot get pattern to work as written very disappointed that I can't make this hat.

I cant' print the instruction's. Why?

It would be very helpful if i could print the instructions. But It's not possible. Can you tell me what to do?

I need the video please.

Can I see the vido please.

do you have a video on the special stiches for this hat?

I love this pattern, but I am having trouble understanding row 3 of the flower. Is there a video tutorial or can someone help me?

How can I make this in kids size?

I've finally completed to the end of row 5. The hat lies flat. If I continue as the pattern says, will it end up curving to the head? It seems now that it will be loose and shapeless and not sure I want to put in the time to find out.

love it .where is the stitch vido to be found.

Please see my blog for a video on how to do the stitches. I was, unfortunately, in a rush to get the video finished so that people could understand the instructions. After several "takes", I had to turn on the fan because, wow, it gets hot in Arkansas! The fan makes excessive noise. The pattern is rated Easy because it fits into YarnStandards.com that way. But, the instructions are very involved, requiring concentration until you know what to do. Once you have it, the hat goes very quickly. http://kimguzman.wordpress.com/2011/09/18/tutorial-charleston-cloche/

Thank you so much for this great video! It helped a lot and it was nice to see that my "wavy doily" wasn't so far off after all. Can't wait to finish this. I make hats for chemo patients and this is so pretty I'm happy to be able to finally make it correctly. P.S. Love your nail polish :-)

You're most welcome. I'm glad it helped. I just wish I had known about so many of my patterns being on FaveCrafts a lot earlier. I would have been able to help sooner. :-)

I agree with girlienumday, instructions need to be clairfied. Definately not an easy pattern.

The instructions are to vague. I'm thinking a tutorial would help remedy everyone's confusion on the clusters. I love the look of the hat but these instructions have got me baffled!

I love it so much. I have made one along this pattern and apply this stitch for a slouchy. Very satisfy with the result. THANK YOU ..b

Can you simplify instructions for the clusters?

This is a beautiful hat but I am stuck on row 4

It sounds more complicated than it actually is. I have to say, though, this hat is taking forever to make. Each row of these clusters is taking way too long. Plus, the clusters seem to take up more space than the first 3 rows, so there's some buckling. I'm hoping that when it's done, and on my head, it will lay more flat.

same here - my beanie begins to look like a wavy coaster - have no idea why. aaargh!
