So I am making this hat: http://www.thisnext.com/tag/buy-turkey-gobbler-hat/
because a friend requested it and I am having trouble with part of the pattern. I don't want to post the whole pattern here, because it is for sale and I don't want to get in trouble, but the part of the hat that is the "turkey body" has this repitition:
Ch3 (counts as first dc), *3 dc in
same sp, ch2, 3 dc in same sp as
first 3 dc, skp 5; rep from *
around; join w/ sl st to top of
firstr dc (Ch3), finish off.
I don't know if it makes sense without seeing the rest of the pattern, but maybe someone can surmise it's meaning from looking at the picture. The question is, when it says to skip 5, are they talking about skipping 5 shells or 5 stitches? The same thing happens later in the pattern:
12. With Autumn Variegated Ch3
(counts as first dc), *5 dc in space
between shells, skp 5; Rep from *
around. Join w/ sl st
13. With Copper Eyelash Ch3
(counts as first dc), *4dc in space
between shells, skp 4; Rep from *
around. Join w/ sl st.
Are the talking about stitches or shells?
