I finished the I-Cord bindoff on the A-line baby dress, only to realize that in order to continue with it, I would have to have a very flexible Knitpicks circular needle, or some size 4 double points. The Boye kit that I have just wasn't doing the trick to get around those corners on the straps.Well, I had neither when I was outside of my house today, so I proceeded to crochet. Here is my progress on Deborah's hat.
Just a few more inches to go. But on the flip side, I have a little problem.
I knew it looked a little bit weird, because I have never seen a hat with those spaces, and it is BOTHERING me till no end. Chante was nice enough to point out that I have been crocheting wrong this whole time. And the pattern is not that hard...it is just a bunch of Double Crochet and Single Crochet stitches. So what's my beef??? The placement of 3 darn Chain stitches on each row. Chante explained that you are supposed to chain 3 for height, and then join it into the same stitch, continuing to work the round as usual. She tried to show me on another piece of a crochet project that she was working on, and I thought I got it.... but now I feel like a dummy because I still don't understand what to do. Deb, I am sorry that I am clueless to the operation of this confusing easy pattern. I even checked for an errata and found nothing.
Deborah expressed to me that she didn't want me to frog it, because she would just use it as a decorating element in the hat. But, it is still bothering me. So Deb, if you are truly not happy with it, I will take it out. Anyone else have an opinion that they would like to share?
