  1. This helps soooo much!! Thank you. Seeing the numbers/math written out like that helps me understand it so much better. I’m going to get back to work now. 😁 I think I was adding too many stitches when I increased, so that’s why I had extra stitches at the end of my rows. I also thought that as well about doing it once and then repeating it x amount of times, but noticed it didn’t add up right.
  2. The pattern calls for two strands to be used for the entire hat. I think I may have started messing up around step 24. After I finished what that step called for, I had four stitches left to fill in the row. I kept going after trying to fix it and when I reached step 26 I had 7 stitches left in the row! I thought I had followed the pattern correctly and even went back to step 25 to make sure that I was making 1 single crochet in each stitch but there were still too many. If you’re wondering how I “fixed it”, I back tracked a bit and used decreases to skip four stitches along the row instead of having four empty ones at the end. I know I probably shouldn’t have, but it fixed the issue at the time. It didn’t look too funky, because of using two strands of yarn the holes aren’t too big. 😅 Can you break down step 24 for me just to make sure I’m doing it right? I thought I had it, because step 22 was correct and I had (44) stitches just like it said I would. I read more about how to read crochet patterns, I promise! I don’t know why I’m struggling so much and I really do appreciate everything everyone has suggested so far. Thank you again!
  3. It’s not a traditional witch hat, it’s like this and I used two strands so it’s more rigid.
  4. Thank you so much for explaining this! It helped me finish the “cone” part perfectly. Now I’m at the crown part of the hat and I’m doing something wrong again. I have been keeping up with how many stitches and where the rows begin, but it’s curving in the wrong direction. Here’s a pic of what it looks like and what it’s supposed to look like. Any idea what I may be doing wrong? This is the pattern for it and the part where it has “(sc, inc)*repeat over the next # stitches” is the bulging area on my piece.
  5. I’m a beginner struggling to decipher this pattern. If someone can break down the first couple lines for me, I think I can figure out the rest. I tried following it but my results look way different from the photo provided with the pattern. I know how to make the magic ring, so I just need a break down of line 1 and 2. It seems so simple, but I’m obviously messing something up. It’s supposed to be a witch hat, btw. Thank you so much!
