I was about 3/4 of the way through and thought I might have to skip the crochet after the slip stitch on each row, so I tore out back to one of my markers and re-did it while skipping the stitch after the slip but it doesn't seem to make any difference.....Help!
The same exact thing is happening to me and I'm a new crocheter. I'm so frustrated. My Fiance wants me to make him a beanie and I did it to about row 16 just like the pattern said and it looks like a frisby! Ughhh

ChiefsChick: According to Diana, the instructions are unclear for the original hat pattern (

Did you try using the links and hook sizes Diana recommended earlier in this thread?

You might find this video helpful. She joins her rounds in the video, your pattern says not to. Maybe it would be easier to keep track of stitch counts if you do join your rounds.
