    I recently made the Secret Garden sun hat, but onthe page that says We are going to make a wide brim, the picture of a lady’s hand that is making a chain around the top of the hat is puzzling to me. Can you explain it?

  2. I dont understand row 14 after you make the 10 stitches…do i break off yarn and add 10 on the other side then continue across? thank you
