    good morning I am a little confused and I know if I get the 3rd round, 2nd step correct the rest will work out. How many TR do you have when finish this round? I count 13 or 14 on the picture but if I follow what it states there should be 10? Thanks for your time on this matter. Looking forward to your response. I have made two so far and love them but would like to know I am doing it correctly.

    It should be 10... Thanks for pointing it out! I hope you got the concept right? I guess I used 6 sc in the magic ring.. Anyways its just about the size. I will make the necessary corrections. If you started doing the Hat... do 10 tr in the round 2. 2 in each of the stitch in the previous row. For the next row do as mentioned. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Great idea, I always forget how hot those lids get, and it looks really cute too!

    This reminds me, I still haven't found a cast iron fry pan handle sheath, those things get branding iron hot! Handy and useful Instructable too, BTW.
