Round 3.5:Repeat round 3 for a total of 18 blocks (clusters, shells).Carry on with pattern.I will now test my theory...
Ok, for round 3.5 you need to do two blocks in first space, one in the second, then two, then one etc. Treat the blocks/spaces as discrete stitches and work a pattern of increases as you would to get a circle.PidjBoy will soon have a new hat
Discrete as in individual. When crocheting in the round, there's a particular way to increase evenly:R1 1 st (x)R2 2 sts in each st (2x)R3 #2 sts in 1st st, 1 in next st# around (3x)R4 #2 sts in 1st st, st in next 2 sts# around (4x)So, if R1 is 6 sts, R2 will be 12, 3 = 18, 4=24, 5=30 etcPidjChick eta is 30/11 <eek>
No, i mean the number of stitches/blocks per round. For this hat, you need 3 in r1, 6 in r2, 12 in round 3. These are the Increase Rows. Then, for newborn size, you work more 12 block rounds.To make a bigger hat, you need to make the crown bigger. That means an extra Increase Row (or more increase rows, depends on who it's for. Do enough increases and you'll get adult size)An Increase is where you work 2 stitches instead of 1. The amount of regular stitches in between depends on what row number you're on. This hat is 0-3 month size. To make it 3-6 month size, add 1 extra increase row (row 3.5)Complete row 3.#Make 2 blocks separated by 1 ch in the 1st space, ch1 then 1 block in the next space, ch1# around. You should end up with a row of 18 blocks and spaces.Then do rows 4 and 5 according to the instructions.I'm very tired, am i making sense yet?
Why feel silly? It's a tricky concept and I'm shit at explaining!Once you understand the theory you can just keep doing increase rows until you get a circle big enough for whoever - just measure round their head and increase till you get to 1" or so smaller
Sheer bloody-minded persistence
Flat is fine, it'll curve in when you do the sides - ie all the same number on every round.2 chain is also fine, just means your blocks will be squarer
I'm already there
Every hour but when will i crochet??????????
I'm planning a sling..
I have a feeling I'll be the same ignores PidjChick's views on the matterIs it bad that I've already been to a sling meet and made a mei tai?
BabyDragon spent a lot of time in the pouch sing I made her
