so I'm making the cap from http://www.royalyarns.com/fp/TLC-Ccht/TLC-LW1379.pdf   and am having trouble with the part that says...

"Shape crown-Next Row (NOTE:Count each sp as a st)   I am not really understanding how to do that since I am a beginner and yes I know it seems easy

Ch 1, sc in first 2 dc: [ draw up a loop in each of next 2 sts, yo and draw through all 3 loops on hook] my question is, if it's a single crochet how are there three loops on the hook??-
sc2tog made ; sc in next 2 sts] 18 times, sctog, sc in top of ch-3; turn-58 sts

^-- I don't even understand how to do that whole line. So help is GREATLY appreciated.


Thank you for the help I REALLY want to finish this hat tonight and I'm really stuck on those parts and continue until I do them!!  Wink

Not sure if someone pm'd you with help but since I don't know I will try to help you - I went to read the pattern so I knew what was going on.

"Shape crown-Next Row (NOTE:Count each sp as a st)  - I am not really understanding how to do that since I am a beginner and yes I know it seems easy

If you read back in the pattern it says 'Rep Rows 2 and 3 for pat until 4 1/2" from beg, end Row 2.'  In Row 2 there are chain 1 spaces and so when you are working this row, you need to work in the chain 1 spaces like they were a stitch.  (Does that make sense?)

Ch 1, sc in first 2 dc: [ draw up a loop in each of next 2 sts, yo and draw through all 3 loops on hook] - my question is, if it's a single crochet how are there three loops on the hook??

Sometimes patterns are hard to understand but in this case the directions in between the [ ]'s are showing you how to make a sc2tog (also called a single crochet decrease.)  So, this is what you should do after you sc in first 2 dc - insert your hook in the next sc, yarn over and pull back through, then insert your hook into the next sc, yarn over and pull back through.  At this point you have 3 loops on the hook, now, yarn over and pull through all 3 loops. 

Ch 1, sc in first 2 dc: [ draw up a loop in each of next 2 sts, yo and draw through all 3 loops on hook] sc2tog made ; sc in next 2 sts] 18 times, sctog, sc in top of ch-3; turn-58 sts

^-- I don't even understand how to do that whole line. So help is GREATLY appreciated.

Here's what you do - Ch 1, sc in first 2 double crochets, [then make a single crochet decrease like I described above, then sc in the next two stitches]  Now, repeat the instructions between the [ ]'s 18 more times, then make another single crochet decrease, then sc in top of the ch 3.  If you do it properly, you should have 58 stitches in this round.

I hope this helps, if not ask for more help and I'll see what I can do.
