Can you believe the mistake with Corina's Crown was staring me in the face and I didn't see it?

Chalk it up to stitch count error, not a botched technique. The hat band section of the diagram clearly shows three groups of four (4) stitches for rows one and two. I tatted three groups of six (6) so of course I got a misshapen chapeau. Recalibrated stitch counts fixed the problem and the crown tatted up a treat.
No idea why I thought Corina's perfectly written 4's were 6's. I had an easy point of comparison in the sixes Corina wrote for the top of the crown. I make these mistakes so you don't have to!
It was fun trying out the other methods of block tatting so I call this a win-win learning experience with a regal crown to show for my efforts.
