I came across the cutest hat in the world...in the cutest yarn ever...

http://www.puppyarn.co.jp/03patterns/3.html#09
And if you click on 'print' on that page, you can download some sort of a chart...does anyone know how to read it??

I love this hat...and it's winter here so it'd be a perfect opportunity to make something cute and warm!

Help! Cheesy

Wow, it is CUTE! I hope you figure it out, but I can't shed any light on it, I'm not a knitter, but hats like these make me wish that I was. Good luck!

Ok, you caught me. I'm not a knitter, nor can I crochet. Nor did I realize that I had clicked into the crochet board. I think I need to go to bed Sad

Hehe, I think I may have found a big piece of the puzzle...take a look at this page...
http://www.hassdesign.com/StitchLegend/
It tells you what most of the symbols mean! I'm not sure what the starting ring is...a magic circle?

And I really have no idea about the yarn thickness and hook size...up the top of the chart is says 110g (the amount of yarn??) and there's a 6 there too...a 6mm hook?

I'm still sorta lost...any help would be greatly appreciated...

(I really shouldn't be thinking about crochet now...it's exam time...but I'm just taking a little break...Cheesy)

yes, the starting bit with the japanese letter wa is a magic circle.  from the box with the stitch explanations, it looks like the leaf-shaped thing consists of 5 dc into the same chain (called 5 dc popcorn on the link you posted) and the other one is the same popcorn thing, but with a turning chain of 3 instead of one of the dcs, and is used at the beginning of each round.  it looks like there are 2 chains between each popcorn stitch.

you can see the increases where the tips of the two leaves come together, and you do two popcorn stitches in the chain to increase.  decreases start in row 11, you can see them where the other tips of the leaves come together.  the symbol explanations in the link pretty much tell you the rest -- where the scs and dcs are.

a size 6/0 japanese hook is not the same as a 6mm.  i think it's 3.5mm or us E, but you could google it.

hope this helps a bit...

Humor me. I haven't looked at any tutorials on this and I want to see how close I am:
6 dc in loop, jn w sl st
chain 3, 2 dc in ea dc = 12 dc, join w sl st
ch 3, *2 dc in next dc, 1 dc in next dc, join w sl st = 18 dc

That is the first 3 rows, am I even close?
