helloand thank you! Smiley  the poofy/floppy part of the beret isn't very hard, you just increase by 5 or 6 stitches even spaced apart, i tried a pattern and it wasn't working at all..I did a much better job just freeforming it.  As for the sleeve, I would cut, tie off, and start crocheting in a different spot attempting to round the edge, I was desperate to save my botched experiment lol.

I wonder, I'm not sure if I still could put them in crochet me or one of those mags, these are all pretty much freeform though, I could possible do the scarf pattern, but I'm not sure if others would come out the same as mine did. I'll work on trying to get the patterns right though Smiley
thanks again! Grin

EDITTED: i'll keep it up.. maybe someone will answer soon

I don't know how to crochet around a post. Any tips?

the pattern says this:

Rnd 3 Working behind petals of Rnd 2, *ch 4, sc around the post of next sc 2 rnds below; repeat from * around 5 ch4-loops.

here's what I have so far.

thanks again for the compliments! Smiley

that's true caz_mc...it's just that the tweed yarn i used is sooo unique, it has gold and brown flecks and it's just so pretty..i won it on ebay..maybe i can find it if i search hard enough hehe

catchstars i don't have the wrapping it came in but it's either red heart or carols, those tend the be the ones i buy most.

lvb, the scarf was continuous, the parts where it cinches inward, i did 2 slip stitches. and then double crochets and then 2 slip stitches that's what gives it that effect of looking like circles that were sewn together. Hope that's understandable =)

I saw this pattern and it seems easy, but I think I've been making mistakes...patterns are still alittle tough for me lol.

1. I realized way too late that I've been crocheting in the front loop --am i supposed to crochet in both?
2. it looks like a giant pizza and I'm not brain surgeon but I don't think it's supposed to be this huge lol.

this is the pattern from the Lion Brand website


16 sc = 4" (10 cm). BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE.

Ch 4. Sc in 4th ch from hook to form ring. Sc in rnds until piece measures 3" from beg. Inc to 6 sts in last rnd. Place marker for beg of rnd.

Inc 6 sts evenly spaced. Repeat last rnd until there are 144 sts.

Dec 6 sts evenly spaced. Repeat last rnd until 72 sts remain.
Join with slip st, turn work inside out. With WS facing, work 5 rnds even.

Tie topknot with an overhand knot. Tack end in place to underside of knot. Pull beret over 9" dinner plate. Lightly damp, allow to dry thoroughly. Weave in ends.

so....I thought it seemed simple but now I think it's all wrong...
what do they mean by 16 stiches = 4 inches? 16 stitches in a circle shape equals 4 inches?
should I just start over or should I look for another pattern that might be better/easier?
im so lost, thanks for any feedback =)
