I LOVED THE HAT PATTERN, GOING TO MAKE FOR MY GRANDAUGHTERS

I'm trying to make this pattern, but when I finally come to rnd 22 I did knew how mede it. please helpme.

i think that it is great

I learned to crochet last week and I made three little girls purses. they were "off the top of my head" in otherowords, I don;t know yet about patterns,. so, I'm reading the comments and I see a couple of difficulties some were having. however, I didn't see the answers.....I would think the answers would be beneficial to everyone. I'm guessing you answer on their email..?? my friend will help me but, it would be so easy to pull up this page and read the answers when we run into a situation right at that very moment so we could continue at that time, rather than waiting to find it on our email....sorry for whining, I'm just so excited, I'm beside myself and crocheting constantly.....(we're retired and hubby is off fishing... you understand:):) thanks samm

love your hat i'm trying to make it for a friend and am having a few problems. row 3 sk 1 dc not 2. Now is rnd 8 you start with 3 sc in first ch-2 sp and not in any of the other spaces. I hate to continue and then have to rip out. Please help

I had a lot of trouble when making the mock up hat. The math didn't come out right. I either didn't have enough stitches or I had too many. I don't know what changed, but I've finished my first hat and didn't have any problems whatsoever following the instructions. All I can say is COUNT, COUNT, COUNT. Make sure you read the abbreviations and are interpreting them correctly. If all else fails, follow the graph. For adding the beads, pick 14-16 beads, color of your choice, but make sure they have large holes so that you can string them before you start your hat. When you get to the two bottom rows, bring up one bead at every picot and continue crocheting. Make sure that you get SEED BEADS. You don't need anything as big as pony beads. I bought TOHO SEED BEADS with large holes.

i have been trying to make the vintage roe crochet hat for a child and when i get to the #5 row it said to do the #3 row that will give me 24 double crochet and 24 ch 2 spaces but i can only get 17 each what am i doing wrong please help 3

Showing the diagram is great. Many years ago when we were stationed in Japan, I wanted to learn how to crochet. I bought some Japanese crochet books. They were in Japanese (of course) but they also had diagrams for each project. After figuring out what they were, it was easy.

i don't think that it is helpful at all

I was wondering if you all checked your gauge and made a gauge swatch before making the hat. That usually lets you know that you need to adjust yarn or needle size to get the correct size.

I used Patons Grace yarn and used a #3 hook with a loose stitch because I don't have a #2 hook. The gauge came out perfect! :)

Diagram was so helpful. I made the hat but it was WAY too big for a child. So sad. How does one adapt a lovely pattern such as this to fit a child?

Use a smaller hook. Maybe a 4.

I agree wCrafter 5274540 .... I made it for my 2 yr old niece and it came out sooooooo BIG!!!!! I even tried using smaller yarn.

I live in a remote area and I can not find the yarn specified in yr patterns. Would you please give me substitutes or equivilents?

The hat came out soooooooo big....I was hoping it would fit my 3 yr old grandaughter.

Love that you included a diagram! I find it so much easier to follow a diagram than written instructions. Of course I do read all through the instructions first, then just follow the diagram! I used to subscribe to Magic Crochet and Decorative Crochet magazines because all their patterns had diagrams, it's a shame they stopped publishing them! Sure do miss them!
