    I mean this in the cutest way possible, I have the same effect on people. I love watching Teresa but always, and I mean always her soothing voice puts me to sleep. I have the same effect on my entire family and never met anyone with that capability. It’s actually very nice. I ‘m a loyal student and will remain one as long as I have music on in the background to keep me from falling asleep. 🙂 love ya Teresa…

    How come there’s no more room for more HDC in round 1? They just overlap themselves. I’m doing what you said, but it don’t ever turn out right. Using the right hook and yarn. Don’t get it.

    I am sorry to hear …
    I am sorry to hear about your son. I have an understanding of your pain, in my own loss of an infant son at birth 23 years ago. Crochet played a big role in my grief process.

    I am thinking that you may be missing some of the half double crochet. from the first round. Just add a couple more half double crochet on round 1 so you can get 10 stars on round 2. The extra stitches will not affect the size or outcome of the hat.

    I purchased the Styrofoam head from Amazon. You can purchase them from a local beauty supply store if you have one. I recently purchased a plastic head from my local beauty supply store because the Styrofoam head wore out.

    You are a blessing. …
    You are a blessing. I started crocheting a month ago. My son died in a car accident in March and this is helping my mind. My daughter showed me how to make a cap and then I found your shell video and made a shell scarf and hat. I am now trying to make this star cap and on round 2 I am coming up with 8 stars instead of 10. I counted to make sure I had 20 HDC in round 1. I have taken out round 2 several times practicing to get the star stitch down. Any suggestions as to what I am doing wrong?

    I was wondering where you obtained your styrofoam head to display your hats on? I’d love to find one so that I can take pics of my hats and sell them.

    Sorry I would’ve posted this question under your Hat Modification post but comments are restricted to Team Members only so I thought I’d come here and ask.

    Thank you so much for replying and everything you have done to teach me how to crochet. Happy Holidays to you and yours! 🙂

    You would decrease stitches. You can pull one extra loop through the center of the stitch you are skipping and combine it with the next stitch. You should not have a big hole.
