I have a question
I'm making a hat and for 8 rounds I do dc and join at the top of ch 3 (ch 3 counts as first dc)
Round 9 is a turning round - ch 1, sc in each dc around; join, turn

Do I join in the beginning ch 1 or the first sc when I get to the end of the round.

Round 10 and subsequent rounds - ch 1, sc in each sc, join

I also wonder what is the purpose of the turning round. Other patterns just continue without turning one round when starting the cuff.

You would join into the first single crochet, not in the chain 1.

I am not familiar with this particular pattern, but my guess is that the purpose of the turn is so that when you turn up the cuff of the hat, the right side of the crocheting is visible instead of the wrong side.

Would love to see a picture when it's finished!

I have a question
MGM - thanks so much. The pattern is for/from Save the Children. One more question - Won't I have one less stitch/sc (35) now since I'm no longer doing the chain 3 which counted as a dc (36).
Crocheting can sometimes be so confusing (to me!)

Your reasoning for why the turning rnd makes sense.

No, because you would then do your first stitch of the new round into the same stitch that you joined in on the last round.

This chart might be helpful for new crocheters. It shows information on turning chains and whether the turning chain is used as a stitch and other useful information that is sometimes hard to remember.

Hope you find it helpful.
