Post For Laura

Hi Laura, I'm glad you liked my version of the hat! Luckily I'm in the middle of another one so I can just show you exactly what I did differently.

Here is a view of the 'loops' that you would normally insert your hook under both to do your single/half double or double crochet.

Again, normal back and forth crocheting you insert under both 'loops'. There is a front loop and a back loop. The front loop is the one closest to the table and the back loop is the one closest to the point of the hook.

My version of the hat uses the back loop only. I always use both loops on my turning/end part to keep it looking tighter and neater. Make sure that when you finish your hat you stitch it together using the same back loops only so you don't have a visible seam.
Let me know if you need further instructions. Good Luck and send me a picture when you're finished!

I've finished my hat! I alternated between both yours and Teresa's stitch. I used her ribbed stitch on one row, then yours on the next. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out - just wondering whether to give it a pompom or not!
Have you got an email address i can send pictures to please?
Thanks so much again for your detailed advice!
