Crochetmama your name is a breath of fresh air in this board full of knitters :LOL (no offence to knitters it's just lonely sometimes being a crocheter here!).
I found a pattern last night after I posted this but I could really use your help with it! I'm really wishing my grandma were still alive. As I said I have been crocheting for forever, but have never progressed past "beginner". This is my first hat ever! I've made tons of blankets but that's it. Blankets are easy
Anyway, here's my problem. Yes, I'm using the woolease thick and quick. Yup, it sure is quick! In just 1/2 an hour (as the children strewed clean laundry all over the back room) I made most of a hat! Wow! But now I got to a point I'm stuck at.
It says "work in single crochet, increasing 9 single crochet evenly spaced - 44 single crochet. Work even in sc for 2" more."
What the heck does that mean? Increase 9 sc in that one round? How? Do I have to divide 44 by 9 or something and do a dc every 4.88888888888888888888 single crochets? :LOL. Ok, I could round it off to doing a dc every 5. But if it's that obvious why don't they just say that? Or is it something else? (or is my math wrong? I am not exactly a math person, :LOL)
Any help would be greatly appreciated
And if it helps here is the pattern I found. Agh! The link isn't working! Double ack! Still not working! It keeps going to the wrong hat
Here's the link to the wrong hat :LOL http://www.lionbrand.com/cgi-bin/lio.../cctq-rib.html
.On the left click on crochet patterns. Scroll down to crocheted accessories and then to chenille thick and quick and the one that says *new* called crochet hat and scarf set (maybe because it's a new link it's not properly set yet?).
I am not using chenille but it seems to be working fine.
