Elin DK asked:
Hi from Denmark, I really would like to make this Owl-hat. But I do not have a Craft-dictionary. What exactly is hdc? ch? tc? ss? dh? ww yarn? sc? Hope someone will help me out here.... please! Thanks from a grandmother to an american granddaugter
lpinchin answered:
hdc half double crochet, ch chain, tc triple crochet, ss slip stitch, dc double crochet, ww yarn is worsted weight also called a number 4 weight, sc single crochet. I'm not sure if Denmark uses American or British terms because they are different. I am using American terms here although I am Canadian. Try looking at youtube videos on how to do the stitches to be sure you are doing the right ones. Hope this helps. Thank you for your interest in my project.

Very cute hats and I'd like to make them for my grand- daughters - I can't figure out how to print the pattern instructions!?
lpinchin answered:
I don't know if it is possible to print out written instructions from this site but you could possibly copy and paste them to a document. Or you could write them out because they are quite simple. Hope this helps.
