Hello Lisa,
I love the Juliet Dress and Hat Pattern but have hit a snag on the hat. The numbers of stitches started coming out wrong for me when I got to Rnd 1
of the Body for the 18-month size. I did it over several times and still came out with 28 ch-2 sps and 14 fpdc's or bpdc's, rather then the 26 ch-2 sps the pattern states. (My previous numbers were correct (14) for both ch-2 sps and fpdc). My numbers remained 28 and 14 and seem to have fit the stated
instructions.

When I got to the band my number was right for the hdc sts (92). In Rnd 1 of the brim I had 59 ch-2 sps instead of the stated 56.

I am a bit frantic as I have to have this done for my granddaughter's first birthday party on Saturday morning so I am writing to see if there is an error
in the pattern or if I have just messed up somewhere. I love the pattern and everyone who has seen it is very impressed with your design! Adorable!

I hope you get this soon and can help me. I am stopping now rather than continue with wrong numbers.

Thank you,

Crystal

Lisa,
I forgot to mention that I have the 1N version of the pattern.

My email address is: catpamperer@yahoo.com

Not sure how this works but am sure hoping you see this soon.

Hi Crystal, I'm so glad that you are enjoying making the Juliet dress and hat. I made it for my 8 yr old grand daughter. Lisa will be in and out this week, so I'll try to help in case she doesn't see this right away.

You are correct in the numbers that you came up with for the 18 mos size. You should have 28 ch-2 sps and 14 fpdc's or bpdc's, for the body, and 92 hdc on the band. Now when you get to the Brim, you will need to adjust Rnd 1 to make it work as follows:

BRIM
Rnd 1: Ch 1, dblch2lp in first hdc, sk next hdc, [ch2lp in next hdc, sk next hdc] 4 (3, 3, 4, 6, 6) || 6 (6, 5, 5, 5, 5, 3, 3) times, dbl-ch2lp in next hdc, sk next hdc, *[ch2lp in next hdc, sk next hdc] 4 times, dbl-ch2lp in next hdc, sk next hdc, rep from * around, join with sl st to first sc––51 (56, 56, 56, 59, 59) || 59 (59, 64, 64, 64, 64, 68, 68) ch-2 sps.


I changed the number in red from 3 to 4. After working it out on paper, though, I still come up with 56 ch-2 sps.

I hope this adjustment works for you and has you coming out with the correct # of sts. I'll keep checking to see if you continue to have difficulties. There are several of us here who will be able to help.

Thank you both so much for your offers of help! I am so anxious to have this be my granddaughter's first birthday gift from me! After my post last night I did some figuring and am going to post what I got so maybe you can see where either I or the pattern went wrong. Here goes.

Body of the sunhat has 28 ch-2 sps and we agree there that 26 is wrong.

My next number, however, was not 92 but 98 hdc for the band of the hat. There are 14 sections (1 hdc on each fpdc and 6 stitches within the fpdc's). I did this over and over and I can't see it coming out any other way. 7 stitches X 14 sections = 98. This could be where I am going wrong but I can't see how.

Then with the previous number at 98, the brim comes out to be 59 ch-2 sps on Rnd 1. This might be okay but the Rnd 2 says that you always have to keep an even number which I don't have.

Any ideas? Thanks so much for anything you can figure out. I carefully went over the directions and wrote everything down to count the stitches and even counted the stitches I put in the hat and can't get different numbers that match the directions.

Will leave computer on as I am at daughter's house and want to be able to check back for a reply.

Thank you both again for your help!

You are correct that worked the way it states, you will end up with 99 hdc in Rnd 1 of the Band. If you do the instructions for the 24 mos size, you will come out with the correct count of 98 hdc. Then, when working Rnd 1 of the Brim, go ahead and do the directions as previously posted with 3 repeats instead of the 4 that I told you last night and you will end up with 59 ch-2 sps. For Round 2, I would add in either 9 dbl ch2 lps, or if the childs head is small, maybe only 7. That will give you the even number that you are looking for.

I'll keep checking to make sure that it is working for you. :D

I am so sorry that the hat is giving you trouble. Lisa may come in and change these instructions, but I think that these will work so that you can get the hat done in time for her birthday on Saturday.

Carolyn,
I am going back to try your corrected (3 to 4) again, although I did it once before. I'll be back to let you know how it comes out.

Thanks,
Crystal

Sorry I didn't see your post since I didn't go back to the board after posting my message. Duh. Back to try again. Thanks for your patience!
