HATE IT!!! Needs the WHOLE pattern!!

The instructions are written for 3 age groups: toddler, child 5-8, and adult. Using a line from the pattern, I will explain this. "Keeping cont pattern, inc 6 sts on every row, as before to 48 (54-60) sts"...this means you will increase to 48 sts for the toddler size, 54 sts for the child size and 60 sts for the adult size.

I am confused. This pattern appears to be for an adult, but in the pattern it says it is for a toddler. Huh? Which is it please?

This pattern appears quite straight-forward to me. However, I've been crocheting for over 40 years. As stated in some of the other comments, perhaps for the sake of the beginners, abbreviations should be explained or completely spell out the words. Learning promotes progress. Good job here.

This little cap would be perfect if done in all pink and given as a gift for a special lady in your life that has breast cancer. She would wear it with pride and would help her feel special because you made it especially for her. Even can be crocheted in a lighter weight yarn for summer months and still keep her cool. Just a thought I had to share... Happy crocheting...

What these instructions mean Keeping cont pattern, inc 6 sts on every row, as before to 48 (54-60) sts, then every following alt row to 60 (66-72) sts. Continue the pattern, increasing by 6 stitches, in the same way the increases were done on the previous rounds. In round 5 there are 3 single crochets between each increase. So, in round 6 there are 4 single crochets between each increase, in round 7 there are 5 single crochets between each increase, and so on until you have the required number of stitches. When you have increased to 48 (54, 60) stitches, you crochet one round with no increases, the next round with 6 increases, another round with no increases, continuing in this manner until you have 60 (66, 72) stitches. You then crochet 9 (10, 12) rounds with no increases. If you are a beginner, it might be easier to finish with slip stitches rather than reverse crochets, and this will still give you a nice look. Here's a site with some nice instructions httpwww.anniesattic.comcrochetcontent.html?typeid=S And here's a nice chart that shows crochet abbreviations and symbols httpwww.crochet.orglessonslessonrlessonr.html Work 9 (10-12) rows even.

What do you mean by then every following alt row60 (66,72)sts. I understand the beginning but not the end of the row. Also, work 9(10-12) rows even?

all beginners and easy patterns should include an abbreviations list to keep the students aware of terms used

need to add an abbreviations. list to define terms listed.otherwise, like all the other patterns, this is an excellent pattern.
