I have a pattern for a baby sacque, hat, mittens, and booties. I am having trouble understanding the directions for the hat. If you can help me, I would appreciate it. The directions starts:

With F hook, ch 2, 8 sc in 2nd st from hook, join in 1st sc, turn.
2nd Round: Ch 3, dc in same space, 2 dc in each sc all around, join, ch 1, turn -- 16 dc.
3rd Round: * 1 sc in next dc, 2 sc in next dc, repeat from * all around, join -- 24 sc.
NEXT 5 Rounds: Alternating rounds work 1 round in dc, 1 round in sc, inc 1 st in each of the 8 inc points having 1 more st between incs in each round, join, do not turn -- 64 sts.

These are the first set of directions before I begin the regular pattern that is on the sacque (which I know how to do).
However, I am stuck at the (Next 5 Rounds). What exactly am I alternating? and if I have already completed up to the 3rd Round (which are the sc stitches), am I to start working my first round (of the next 5 rounds), in dc (in each sc space of the last round I worked), or am I to begin agin (my 4th round), with sc in each present sc space? Also, am I to still join (and turn), at the of the 4th round before beginning the 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, and 9th rounds, or not? Please help me. I am totally confused. My cap's top is not turning inward to form a cap the way I am doing it. Also, when I begin dc in the spaces of my last row of sc, I am ending the round with approximately 24-25 dc and if I do alternating rows of dc and sc in each space, when I complete 5 more additional rounds, I will end up with more than 64 stitches. Also...how do I do inc (increase stitches), in order to make the (inc points?).

thanks,
Val

I thought the site was great. Especially when I saw the pillow with the daisy. It was on the Carol Duvall show yesterday. I just love watching Carol but I wish that she would spend just alittle more time with some of the guest doing the crafts. Doing the pillow went just too fast. But thank heaven for your website. The way I got to your web site was that I logged into WannaLearn homepage hoping to find instructions on crocheting; which I found. Keep up the good work and am looking forward to seeing you on the Carol Duvall Show again.

I'm looking for instructions on making a stitch called waffle stitch. When you look down on your project, it looks just like a waffle

Well Written and easy to understand site. A lot of excellent tips for crochet teachers to be able to give this site to their students at their last class to help with the continuation of the learning of the craft
