Whoa...some beautiful hats! I really love the baby versions!
I have a silly question, again.... Shocked
Before starting the "brim" rows...is everyone still slipping and chaining two before starting the bpdc, fpdc combo?
I want to finish this sucker so I can send it off tomorrow...any help would be awesome!!

- Sandy

**UPDATE** - I went ahead and slipped, chained two...but them started right away with the bpdc, fpdc combo...I think this might work!  If I'm doing it wrong, feel free to comment, please!!  I'll post a pic when I'm done.

Thanks I really like this color too. It was the only reason I tried out Vanna's choice. The yarn felt a little scratchy at first but soften up nicely in the dryer. The color is called Sapphire and  I would have made a scarf to go with it but I cant find the dye lot again.  Cry

I did my brims the same way with the chain 2 and it came out fine.

Are you finding the other colors to be soft? I know sometimes the dye can make the yarn feel different. I love the Vanna's choice colors so I am willing to give it another go.

Finally...it's done!



This was a baptism by fire - as I am a beginner...
This was made with 3 hooks....J (main hat), H (3 rds of brim),G (last two rds of brim).
Thank you everyone for your help!!
