Wow!  That pattern is interesting, to say the least.  I actually had to pick up my hook and some yarn to figure out what was going on.   Tongue

Okay, here's what you're going to do. You've made your first row.  You should have this little "cluster" of three double crochets and a little loop of chain stitches at the end of the row.  When you turn your work and chain five, you're going to work three double crochets into the first chain stitch you made which would be the fourth chain from your hook.  Yes, it will be floppy for just a second (like a little dangling cluster of stitches).  If you look at your work you should see your group of three double crochets closest to your hook and what looks like a backwards "D" beside it.  That is your group and your chain space from the first row.  Find the third double crochet in the row 1 group and join that little dangling cluster of stitches to it with a slip stitch.  Chain three and then work three double crochets into that little backward D at the end of the row.  Once you've done that you will notice that you have six double crochets in your second row.

thanks, i am pretty sure i understnad it now, or most of it, i am going to give it a try later, i left my crochet stuff at work, so i will post and let you know if i figured it out. at least i know it isn't just me that thought it was strange.

there are a bunch of women at work who have done this pattern, but i don't know any of them personally, and they don't work in my department so it makes it pretty hard to ask them how to do it.

that is why i love craftster, always someone who is willing to try to help.
