Student needs help hatching

I’m working on a logo and I can’t seem to get this piece of the logo to hatch in purple. Hope I can get some help and an explaination!

You may have to adjust pattern scale?

This is on a Mac, but should be the same on Windows.

Hatch doesn’t seem to like the long, skinny areas near the center of your logo, the sides are too close together and the control polygon crosses itself. A hatch is actually created, but it’s microscopic and a bad object.

I moved a few of the control points around so their arrangement in that area is more logical and it now works.
