Hi Carol! SO glad you enjoyed it! <3 Thanks for the lovely comment.
Hi, I’m confused on round 16. 70 sc but 35 ch? If we aren’t skipping stitches i understand the 70 sc but how are there only 35 ch? If there is ach after each sc, wouldn’t there be 70? The groups of sc, ch, sc is creating the brim to look like a sunhat. Help!
Hi Susie, There’s NOT a chain after every sc, there’s one chain in between pairs of 2 sc- so half as many. I often auto-pilot to adding extra chains in between, too. Hope that helped clear it up!
