Howdo you print patterns from Ipad?
Aug 13, 2018
Oh that's a good question and I'm not totally sure! I believe you have to have a printer set up wirelessly. Then on the iPad, you should be able to print this page. I hope that helps!

There is no button to print. Thanks.

Hi there! If the webpage isn't showing a print button, you can use your settings in the Safari web browser to print. Here is a helpful article I found that offers great step by step instructions: http://www.solveyourtech.com/print-web-page-ipad/ I hope that helps!

On row 11-14 it says to repeat row 10. If you did that you would have 50 stitches at row 14 and then row 15 you couldn't do the last round and have 27 "spikes" I found that repeat row 7 will allow the pattern to have 54 stitches allowing the 27 "spikes" on row 15.

With this pattern & patterns I've printed in the past the printing is so small you almost need a magnifying glass to read it. I know it isn't my printer as some patterns print okay. Is there any way the print could be made larger?

@peainmuskoka: We've test printed this pattern, and the text seems to be printing normally. Perhaps there is a setting you can adjust on your printer? Please contact us if you need further assistance. -- Editors of FaveCrafts.com

For those of you wondering about the beginning chain. It is only 3 chains long. When you hdc in the last chain the previous 2 chains become your first hdc. I think it should read make nine hdc in the last chain giving you a total of 10 hdcs. Hope this helps ,also think that they intended for the direction to read the circumference of the hat to be 17 1/2 inches not the diameter as was pointed out in a previous comment.

For everyone asking how many chains to start: I don't even read crochet books, am a total beginner, but can still see it says, "Chain 3." That is the first chain. 3. It has to start out as the middle of the top of the hat. There isn't a long chain to start it.

I made this hat in yellow with a white border and it looks like a little daffodil. I also used the border on a matching afghan--it was a little too ruffly so I changed it to "Ch 2, 1 dc in next st, sc in next st, sl st in next st" and it was perfect.

hdc is half duoble crochet- for crafter6999970
May 27, 2010
what does hdc stand for
Mar 23, 2010
RS means right side
Mar 03, 2010
for vgirlsmom, maybe it is to make it a little tighter at and rim. I sure would like to answer to this also.

I am confused when it asks to repeat round 10, won't the hat get smaller at the brim because you are skipping the last stitch on each round or is this just skipping the ch 2 at the beginning of the previous round?
Feb 23, 2010
In round 1 what does (RS) stand for ?

Lovely Baby Blue Hat. Can't wait to try it. Am writing about one correction. You said the hat measures 17-12 inches in diameter. It should be 17-12 inches in circumference, not diameter. If you draw a circle and then make a straight line from side to side through the middle, that is diameter. Circumference goes around an item such as using a tape measure to measure around your head. I just made a hat for my 1 month old niece and the circumference (around) of her head was about 16-12 inches which is why this simple error caught my attention. Hope it was okay to call this too your attention. Sue
