I am somehwat new to crocheting (this is my first piece of clothing project) and am currently working on the Bernat Toddler Hoodie (to crochet) http://www.bernat.com/pattern.php?PID=272
and I am having trouble with the directions for corcheting the hood. It reads:
HOOD: Ch 76 (78-80-82).
Foundation row: (RS). 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook. *Ch 1. Miss next ch. 1 sc in next ch. Rep from * to end of ch. Ch 1. Turn. 75 (77-79-81) sts. Proceed in pat as given for Back for 3 rows.
Next row: (RS). Sc2tog over first 2 sts. Pat to last 2 sts. Sc2tog over last 2 sts. Ch 1. Turn.
Next row: Work even in pat.
Rep last 2 rows to 59 (61-63-65) sts.
Cont even in pat until work from beg measures 6¼ (6¾-7-7¼) ins [16 (17-18-18.5) cm], ending with RS facing and omitting turning ch at end of last row. Does this mean that I continue alternating the decreasing row as listed above, and the regular pattern until it reaches the proper length?
Shape back seam: Next 6 rows: Sl st in each of first 3 sts. Pat to last 3 sts. Turn. Leave rem sts unworked.
23 (25-27-29) sts rem. Fasten off. I did this and the edges on both sides of the hood turned out to look like steps on each row. Not sure what I am doing wrong. I think the edges should be round?
Please help me!! if anyone can include any pictures or diagrams of what the hood should look like, that would be helpful too.
