I'm trying to make my first amigurumi, and I'm having some problems with the pattern  Undecided .

Here's what it says:

HEAD/BODY: Beg at center top of Head, with gray, ch 2.
Rnd 1: 6 sc in 2nd ch from hook. Do NOT join but cont. to work in a spiral, marking beg of each rnd and moving marker as work progresses.
Rnd 2: 2 sc in each sc, around. ( 12 sc ).
Rnd 3: * Sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc * rep from * around. ( 18 sc ).
Rnd 4: * Sc in next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc * rep from * around. ( 24 sc ).
Rnd 5: Sc in each sc around.



Ok, so I'm good up until Rnd 3. It's the little * that I don't understand, does that mean to place a marker there and work (this number) of sc from it? and I can't tell if it means to work 1 sc in each sc from the *, or 2 sc in each?

I'm so glad I found craftster, because I know that some wiser and probably gorgeous wonderful hooker will be able to help me figure this out!  Wink

*Sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc* is your pattern repeat.  You do that all the way around: sc in the first stitch, 2 sc in the second stitch, sc in the third stitch, 2 sc in the fourth stitch, sc, 2 sc, sc...and on and on until you have a finished round of 18 stitches where there used to be 12.

You need the marker to show where the round begins. Since you're doing a spiral, and in sc, it will be difficult to see.

Admittedly, I have trouble with keeping my place straight with the marker anyway.

But just to be clear, the *'s aren't related to the round marker. Like aliastriona said, they only indicate the sequence of stitches to repeat.
