    3. Yes, that's the size. If it's too big or small, adjust your foundation chain by groups of 6. So go up to 75 or down to 63. I would try completing the whole first round first then try it on, the stitch pattern affects the size a bit. Hope that clears up the confusion.

    1. The sc will be done in the ch that the last sl st you did was in. It is not in the last ch 1 that you made.

  5. ok i got that part and im also confused about this part to (and sorry i keep asking Q im new to reading patterns)
    at the end do not join, twisting the chain to work in the free loops side

    1. It's okay. I'd rather you ask ?s than to just get frustrated and give up. The free loops side are the loops of the foundation chain you didn't use. The bottom.

      So use your hook hand index finger and thumb to pinch the stitch you just made. Then pinch the first sc of the row in your index finger and thumb on your non-hook hand.

      Turn your non-hook hand away from you so that the side that was facing you is facing away. Then continue crocheting in the loops that are now the top side.

      I promise that after this, the headband gets easier. The first round is the complicated part.

    1. You'll crochet in what was the bottom but is now the top after you twist it.

    1. Instead of inserting your hook through chain to work the sc, you'll put your hook in the space under the chain.

  8. im still not really sure what you mean ?

    1. You'll work the sc's around the ch instead of in the ch. And you'll ch 1 after every sc.

  10. What about this
    Sc when back at beginning?

    1. Which beginning? If it's the first stitch of round 2, you should have done the slip stitch to join, then a slip stitch in the 1st chain space, then ch 1, then your sc will be in the chain space you just did a slip stitch in.

      I think that's the sc you're talking about.

  11. For rows 2-7 in the * ... * repeated stitch sequence am I doing sc in stitches or in chain spaces of the previous row? The finished headband looks like it's in the spaces but the pattern actually says to sc in st?

    1. In the space. Sorry. I'll fix the pattern.
