dickiebird2010 3713564

I wished this one was in Dutch because all these terms are not clear to me. Somebody please?

(PM in center sc) What is PM? I have never seen this.

bowermclain 5516094

I think the line that is confusing me is: [Sc in each sc to 1 sc before marked sc, 2 sc in next sc, sc in marked sc] twice Is it 2 sc in next, then 1 sc, then the same thing again (meaning twice)? Because that is not getting me the correct diameter at 54 stitches. Thanks in advance, Willo

Ok, I've tried this several times, but when I get to 54 stitches the diameter is about the size of a hat. What am I doing wrong? Thanks.
