This review is from: Crocheted Beanies (Twenty to Make) (Paperback)
This book is terrific value and the all 20 designs are really lovely. However, it is best suited to someone with experience. I tried the peaked cap and, despite using the correct yarn and hook, found the pattern wasn't right and the row where you reduce again for the brim made it ludicrously small. I had to go up 2 hook sizes to get anywhere near. Also, I found the pattern a bit strange in that there was a lot of breaking off of the yarn and rejoining. It could have been designed/written to flow much more smoothly and give an overall neater finish.
I still love the book for the price, and it would have got a higher rating if I depeded on design alone, but I think it is better used as inspiration rather than patterns to follow slavishly.

Sorry you are having problems. What design are you making? I know you said 'this beanie' but there was no picture - do you mean the cover design?
I had a quick look through my copy and couldn't find that abbreviation. If you reply to this with the design and rough location of the reference, I'll try and help. I have an idea but would like to check it fits the pattern first.
