ok. i am very confused. i am working on my first crochet project. it's a dreadlock hat. The last rounds directions were

"Ch 4, *1 dc in next st, ch 2) repeat from * around, join (30 sts)"

i am supposed to repeat this row 6 times. so i guess my question is what exactly is "the next stitch" that they want me to double crochet in. since i am making 2 chains for every double crochet that adds alot of extra sts. should i double crochet in every st including the chains? or should i only double crochet in the double crochet sts?

i hope this makes sense... please help me!

If it's at the bottom of a hat, sounds to me like "next stitch" refers to the next double crochet, skipping the chains.  At least, for the repeat rows.  Without seeing instructions for the preceding line, it's hard to tell for the first row.
