I'm stuck at attaching the hood

Row 2 makes the number of stitches per row less and pulls the row making it uneven. Is this right or are there sc's missing?

Please help clarify this pattern more. "Shape back seam: Next 6 rows: Sl st in each of first 3 sts. Pat to last 3 sts. Turn. Leave rem sts unworked. 23 (25-27-29) sts rem. Fasten off." How on Earth am I supposed to get from 65 sts to only 29? If my math is right, even taking away 6 each row for 6 rows, I'd have 47... is there a typo here? It also looks really bizarre... help?

Hey can someone please clarify this line for me? Because I'm really confused and I'm not sure what it wants me to do ;; "Fold Hood in half along back seam edge and sew center back seam. Pin shaped edge of Hood to neck opening, beg at center of button or buttonhole bands and matching back seam of Hood to center back neck edge." I wish this pattern came with a bunch more photos! Patterns with photos are always so much easier to fallow! =)

I wish there were more patterns for little boys. Most of the patterns are for little girls. I have 2 gr grandsons ..one is 5 & the other is almost a year old. I have trouble finding patterns for boys.

Minny, could you use blue, brown or brown ombre and switch the button hole to the other side for boys? Just a thought. Yes, it is hard to find little boy type projects so I do just change things around. Seems to work. Good luck. Priscilla

I have made many different patterns through the years, but this is my absolute favorite! I have made it twice in the past couple of weeks. Takes me about 6 evenings. Added novelty-style buttons. My daughter-in-law said that she is constantly getting compliments when my granddaughter wears them. I made the 12 mos. size.

Opps that is YouTube to watch the videos

I just learned how to crochet and this is my first project. Can anyone tell me what the abbreviation "sp" means? And how do I do it?

"sp" means space. It would be helpful for you to go to any of many tutorial sites which demonstrate basic stitches and which explain pattern abbreviations and symbols. You'll be making this and other patterns in no time!

I also still after many years o crocheting fnd m mind forgetting. So I go to YouTub ad hevideos from many different people help me step by step, even with things I didn't know.

hi do you have this pattern in size 5 ? thanks

i like to makit for my grate grendother.

This is so cute. I'm going to make this for my niece. Thanks for the pattern.
