And that's the problem with free patterns. Now I know pattern writing is hard, I've done it. I check and redo many times. Though sometimes you come across patterns that make no sense what so ever.
Case in point
The flat disc on top is supposed to be a hat. 4 times I redid thinking it was me since I haven't crocheted in a long while. Then I checked out other peoples projects. It wasn't me it was the pattern. So I am doing my own thing ( that's what in the bottom half of the picture) and basically using the picture for inspiration. That is what I normally do anyway. It's just been really busy and crazy here so I figured I'll just follow a pattern and relax. So didn't happen. Oh well
