MICHAELS NEEDLECRAFT BOOK blOWS!!!

so i bought it from half priced books to refresh myself on knitting etc and check out some tres cute crochet patterns in it, namely one toggle backpack and one blueberry baby cap, for my little one on the way. these are the WORST crochet patterns i have EVER tried to follow, having NO stitch count, not telling what size hook is called for, not telling where to inc or dec, among other things. I AM SO BLOODY FRUSTRATED I COULD BURST!!! lol it made me cry last night trying to make the blueberry hat, i sobbed to my boyfriend "i just want our baby to look like a little blueberry, is that so much to ask , dammit?!?!"...

yes. he laughed.

aaaaaw! I get the fustration I have a mental block when it says 2sc, cuz to me that means do two single crochets in the next two chains but it means increase two stitches by increaseing into 1 stitch!!! I think you'll just have to make notes with a pencil in the book and guess when to increase and decrease.
