    Newsboy Hat Done!

    Thanks everyone for all your help!
  2. I posted the pattern under Pattern Links. It is a video and I am typing it in Word as I go. Of course I am stuck on the end of the second row (image below). This stitch is quite a bit different than any I have done. I think I should wind up having 28 stitches on my hook. I have 26 so far and am not sure where to insert my hook for the next two?
  3. Thanks to all for your help...I have crocheted the band and have yet to decide on buttons for the band.
  4. https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=23&v=Ix8JCCnQHUc Can't wait to try this!
  5. I had to stop and go to the grocery store. I am about to go ahead with the rim--I am pretty sure I don't understand the instructions so I'll be back...still have to reset my password every time I come back--even though I save it?
  6. That sounds interesting: Doing it the way I was, by the third row the brim was about an inch thick and getting thicker with every row.
  7. My own version of the pattern
  8. I think I am on track. If I am I will post later what I did...

    I have a question

    I love to garage sales. There was a box that said free at the end of the driveway--it had some crochet/knitting hooks in it, some yarn and patterns-- so I took it; didn't buy anything. For all sizes follow Rounds 1-7 Chain 3 and join into a ring with a slip stitch. Row 1) 8 hdc into ring, slst to join (8 sts) Row 2) ch 2, 2 hdc in ea st, slst to join (16 sts), Row 3) ch 2, 2 hdc in first st, *hdc in next st, 2 hdc in following st* slst to join (24 sts) Row 4) ch 2, 2 hdc in first st, *hdc in next 2 sts, 2 hdc in following st* slst to join (32 sts) Row 5) ch 2, 2 hdc in first st, *hdc in next 3 sts, 2 hdc in following st* slst to join (40 sts) Row 6) ch 2, 2 hdc in first st, *hdc in next 4 sts, 2 hdc in following st* slst to join (48 sts) Row 7) ch 2, 2 hdc in first st, *hdc in next 5 sts, 2 hdc in following st* slst to join (56 sts) ***All measurements are with the hat laid flat, so double it to get circumference. Baby 0-6 months (width measures 7.25”) Rows 8 – 16 or until hat measures 5” crown to base) ch2, hdc in ea st, slst to join (56 sts) Row 17) ch 1, sc in next 38 sts, ch 1, turn Row 18) slst for 22 sts, ch 1, turn Brim: *1. Row 19) sc through both rows 17 & 18 for 22 sts, make 2 sc in the 2nd st (by sc these two rows together you are creating a thick row and turning 2 rows into 1), ch 1 turn (23 sts) Row 20) sl st all the way back, ch 1, turn (23) *2. Row 21) sc through previous 2 rows, making 2 sc in 5th st from beginning and 5th st from end, ch1, turn (25) Row 22) sl st all the way back, ch1, turn (25) *3. Row 23) sc through previous 2 rows, ch1, turn (25) Row 24) sl st all the way back, DON’T ch1, turn (25) *by skipping the chain 1 it helps to create a rounder edge on the brim *4. Row 25) still single crocheting through both rows… skip the 1st st, sc in 2nd st and in each st until you get to the 2nd st from the end, sc last 2 sts together (23) Row 26) sl st all the way back, DON’T ch1, turn (23)

    I have a question

    My question is "how to sc in the two previous rows"?
  11. Thanks so much. I thought that might be how to do it but wasn't sure it wouldn't show. I will post a picture when I am done crocheting the beanie. I started out doing a pair of baby booties. It actually took me a year to do two booties. I could not figure out where to insert my hook and would get frustrated to the point I would put it away for a bit. Since then I decided to try a beanie and was surprised how much easier it went. Soooo, I did about eight beanies. It's time to try striped beanies and am also working on a newsboy beanie for a 4 year old. I have learned how to mark my starting stitch--that helped a lot.
  12. There is a spot in this video that shows how to change color for a single row. After fastening off, how do I weave in the color of just that one row. I may want to change to a different colored stripe for six or so rows? 25:00 into video
  13. Tore it all out, all five panels. I started my first attempt at baby booties in December 2017. I finished the first bootie December 9, 2018. The second bootie was finished today--December 30, 2018. I tried posting to the correct forum but it was highlighted in gray and would not let me create a New Topic. Lucie iweararedhat.blogspot.com

    Help

    I actually love the look. I like crooked houses when quilting...
  15. OK, I just re-measured my squares and they are: Afghan stitch squares are 6 1/2 x 6 1/2 Lace squares are 8 1/2 x 6 1/2 wide Length of all five panels wound up 48 1/2", Width = 6 1/2 " On the front cover of instructions the lace squares look longer so I went with it. If there is a mountain to climb, I will find it. Hopefully my tension will improve...
