ok i think I have one last question.

Will I being going through a stitch more than one time... I know at the beginning of course... but I'm running out of stitches which is I beleive why I wasn't skipping any.
But I think its telling me to go through the chains at the hole with all 6 stiches of the shell right'? so it would be 3 stitches per chain at the "points" so to speak. If that is the case, that is definatly where I am making a big error, because I am running out of room for the stiches.

and also. it increases by 2dc on each side of the shell each row right?

figured out what i was doing wrong I beleive... but its looking more like a pentagon than a star.... can't for the life of me figure out what I'm doing wrong now. I've already started over 6 times...

so basically you add 2dc on either side of the shell (a shell I assume is 3dc -3ch -3dc) and each of these points is seperated by 2 skipped stiches right?

And for every ring you add you just add 2 dc on each side... so 2dc, then 4dc, then 6dc on either side of the shell?

The pattern reads very confusing to me, especially since this the first one i've ever tried to read.

ok I kow what I'm confused about.

figured out what I was doing wrong up there... only had half the "shell" so it was half the stiches. lol. I'm such a nerd. first project though, so I don't feel so bad.

However, I'm having difficulty after this with row 3.

When starting row 3.

It looks to me like there are 5 dc on either side of the "hole"

so its like 5dc "hole" 5dc "skip 2 stiches" 5 dc "hole" 5 dc "skip 2 stiches" 5dc----ect.

Do I have the right Idea. Is the whole 2 dc then "shell" talking about the extra 3dc "hole" 3dc that I'm seeing?

Or am I totally confused.

I guess what I am asking is hell 3dc, 3ch, 3dc?                so adding the 2 dc to either end would look like 5dc on either side of the hole?

and then after that would I just add nother 2dc to the 5dc on each side of the hole making it 7dc... 9dc.... 11dc? to increase?

What am I doing wrong?

It does not look like a star at all. I'm on row 3 and its curling up looking like its trying to form into a hat and looks nothing like what the others at row 3 I've seen.

This is the first thing i've attempted in crochet. can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?

I wonder if someone might be commisioned to make of these for me... if anyone is interested pm me.

I don't really know how to crochet myself. I would be interested in trying this, but I am afraid this may be beyond beginner range...
