I have been dying to make a "cone hat" and I finally found this pattern:
http://web.archive.org/web/20031202150257/http://www.yarncat.com/conehat.html

But...I started crocheting and it starting getting really wide at the top..but it's suppose to be thin and the top and larger at the bottom. Something seemed very wrong. In the pattern, there seems to be a lot of INC, which makes the hat wider, yes? Am I not reading it right?

When it says increase around, it means to continue increasing throughout the round yes?

Also, does the (#dc) at the end mean the complete amount of dc's throughout the round? Because there seems to always to more that in says!

I am so confused. Help!   Huh

the pattern you linked starts at the top of the hat and works down towards the brim/band so if it's getting wider i think you're doing right
the number in brackets is the number of stitches that should be in that round, 3 increases per round

Yes, but it's VERY wide and oddly uneven.
I should've taken a picture before I unraveled it.
Darn it.

Yes, the numbers in brackets at the end of each line is your stitch count for that round.

This pattern doesn't seem to be written in a way I'm used to reading, but I'm guessing the "around" is supposed to be separate from the rest of the line.

For example, in round 3.  You should have 9 stitches from round 2 to work into:

Rnd 3:Ch 3,dc in next st,Inc.Dc in next 2 dc,Inc around.Join.(12 dc).

If you interpret that as:

ch3 (counts as dc).  dc in next stitch.  *increase in next stitch, 2 dc* repeat between * Join.

Then you have 12 stitches like you're supposed to.


So, in every round, find the part (near the end of the instructions for that round) that fits the form "Dc in next X st,Inc around." and repeat that section until you reach the end of the round.
