I did start the hat but got a bit lost in the directions so have knitted my daughter a hat yesterday and today. My MIL is here today and tomorrow so she is going to try and show me what I am supposed to do. I just hope English and US crochet terminology is the same or she might get confused.

English vs American
The terminology isn't the same.
US >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>English
single crochet >>>>>>>>>>>>>>double crochet
extended single >>>>>>>>>>>>>extended double
half double >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>half treble
double>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> treble
treble>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> double treble
double treble >>>>>>>>>>>>>>triple treble

This should help.

I decided to go with the US method of doing the crochet as most of the you tube videos are American and the pattern Picture Perfect Hat is American. Just got to confusing to try and translate etc.

Anyway just did the third row on the hat and am not sure if I did it right. I wonder if somebody could try and look at the pattern
http://www.luv2crochet.com/pictureperfectcrochethat.pdf

and see If I did it right. the way I crochet the 3rd round I did 3 dc in a dc then when it say to do 3 dc ch1 twice I did that in the space created in previous round when you ch 1 between the 3dc's. now the 3rd round look kind off squashed together and ruffled. is that right? Does any of this make sense.
any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. If I did not word this right let me know and I will try again.

round 3
Yes you did it correctly! Just remember that after you do (3dc, ch1,3dc), you have to do

"skip next dc, work 3 dcís in next dc, ch 1, work (3 dcís in next space, ch 1) twice, ch 1] around.
Join to top chain of beginning chain 3. ~ 12 dc groups " , to finish to round.
It should be a bit ruffled as you are increasing the number of stitches.
Keep it up and let us know if you need any more help.

sorry might seem like a dumb question but what is a dc group is it every time you have completed 3 dc's is counted as one and the part when you do 3dc's twice is another group or is the whole thing counted as one. after completing row 3 I have eight 3dc's and eight 3dc ch1 twice in same hole. which gives me either 8 groups or 16 groups either way it is wrong. have just taken a photo will try and upload it.

here is a photo, you can probably not see what I am doing wrong by looking at it but worth a shot.

dc groups
I read the pattern and drew a diagram. When you get to row 3, you are correct in that each 3dc and the 3dc,ch1 repeat twice is a dc group. You will end up with twelve dc groups. Since they don't give a top view from what I see you are correct so far.
>>> You should have 3dc in the same stitch as the slip st dc of row 1 and (3dc,ch1,3dc) in each ch1 space. Mind you there is a ch1 between each 3dc.
>>> The next row is a repeat of the row just done.

Crochet help
I am a knitter and want to learn how to crochet...I am getting the basic stitches but reading the patterns are tricky. Can anybody tell me what 11 dc in ring means? Does it mean to do a double crochet stitch 11 times? I don't have enough stitches to do so...Any suggestions on good online videos or explanations for crochet?

As far as I know when you start with a ring you do your dc's inside the big hole of the ring. so if you did a ring that is only ch 6 then join you would not use each of the ch for your dc but the hole that is made by joining them into a ring. does that make sense. I spend a lot of time looking at videos on you tube, just do a search for crochet dc or sc tons of them come up.

mathwizard - I am completely and utterly grateful for your patience. I am sure mine is wrong as I am suppose to have 12 groups of dc and depending how you count them I either have 8 complete groups or 16 if you split them into 3dc and the 3dc twice. I might go buy some thinner thread maybe it will be easier to see what I am doing with thinner yarn.
