Beepy Cat, I just tried to make a hat from Midnight Knitter, the chunky crochet hat, and I got the point again on it! I think it has something to do with how I'm joining the ends of a round together. as I looked at my Big Bessie Smith hat, I saw that there was weirdness along the area where the rounds ended, some kind of increasing or weird joining ans that is producing a elongated & pointy 20's looking edge. I remembered that I made the Bessie hat bigger because at the time I had baby locks going on & needed something bigger to cover them. I will continue to investigate this. DD needs her hair comed out. ( bi-racial angst will follow)

From my earlier post:

But I do have a question.  I had some trouble when joining beginning with rnd 6.  It says to skip last dc and join to 3rd ch of beginning ch.  If I did that it left a huge space.  Maybe I wasn't pulling tight enough, I don't know?  So, I just winged it.   I do want to make more though and want to do it right!  It left the V shapes (formed when you dc, ch 1, dc into the ch 1 space) that come down the hat a little askew.  When I get the camera I'll post the pics if I'm not explaining well enough.  Sorry!!


I think this is probably the same problem slystr is encountering.  How I didn't end up with a point I don't know!

Beppycat, I salute you for putting your gauge as a diameter!! 

For several days, I have been struggling to make a hat out of some leftover yarn, and I cannot get it to come out right for some reason.  I'm not new at this, either!  I've made dozens of hats in the past.  I've tried 4 different patterns and ways of using the yarn (i.e. 2 yarns together, alternate strands like stripes, etc.), I've tried different hooks.  I don't know what's going on.  And all the patterns I've tried put down the gauge in a way that makes no sense for a round piece, and I haven't been able to figure it out.  I thought to myself "Why don't you just tell me what the diameter should be for X number of rows??"  Hooray for you!!

So I thought, okay, there was that cute flapper hat on craftster, I'll go see what her pattern says... I'm going to try your pattern next, and if it works out, I'll post a photo!  Grin

I think maybe it's a similar problem but not exactly the same.  You were encountering those spaces because that's sort of the nature of the join when keeping the pattern stitch.  I always just make sure to join tightly to try to minimize it, though there's a "seam" running up my hat too.  I think that maybe slystr is increasing when she's joining somehow.  I'm pretty sure that an increase on every row in the same spot would give you a point like that.  Or maybe you are doing the joining correctly, slystr, but not doing it as tightly as the rest of your crocheting.  That might cause the point to grow too.  Anyway, it was a happy accident, cause it looks pretty cool.  Skinny white lady in the twenties cool.  Wink

BeppyCat,

Just want to give you a little feedback on the pattern:  I have done two of the hats so far, and love the pattern.....I used a cotton thread I had on hand, kinda a sport weight, and it worked out great..I will post a picture in a little bit.  Anyway, on the subject of the seam showing, when I came to the end of the round and joined to the 3rd ch of the ch 4 of the beginning of the round, I did a slip stitch in the next chain, and then began the ch 4 for the next round.  This puts the ch 4 in the middle of the "V stitch", and there is no visible seam.  This worked great for me, you can't see the beginning of a round on the finished hat.  And just for future info, on the flower instructions, it would be nice to have a note that the second round of petals goes behind the first round.  I did not realize this, as this was my first time at doing flowers, so my flower turned out backwards!  Beautiful, but backwards!  Just thought you would like the info incase you wanted to update your pattern.  You did a great job on writing it, keep up the good work.

Thought you might like to see the hats I did, the red one has the backwards flower (beautiful backwards!).  I have tried several patterns for crocheted roses, and the like this one the best.


Thanks BeppyCat!

I too have been addicted!! Smiley  I've crocheted around 5 in the past day! Smiley Guilty.  I modified the pattern to be compatable with Lionbrand Chunk USA and I like the look better - it kinda looks like something I saw at America Eagle a while ago.  I cut down the double crochet top and increased using the V-stitch. I'll post a pic when I get home from school, but thought that you guys would like to know. Smiley


P.S. You might be getting the point when you join the rounds.  I was about to V-stitch in the next space, but you kinda have to skip one after doing the ch 4, dc.  Then skip the next ch 1 space and v-stitch in the next ch 1.  I don't know if I explained that well, or if that's even the case.  But just though I'd throw in my two cents.

P.S.S. WONDERFUL PATTERN!!!!

Thanks all  you who are helping  with my pointed  problem.
 Now if I WANT to get the point, can anyone tell me just what to do? I kind of understand what  MAY have happened, but as a newbie, I dont quite understand exactly what I am doing. I just LOVE the pointty bit and would like to get it on purpose rather than some random serendipitous accident.
thanks!
