I am really new to crocheting. As in only started like a few days ago... I am attempting a pattern and it says chain 4 then do 9 double crochets in first chain. How do i do 9 DC in one chain? Wouldn't 1 DC go in each part of the chain? Or do I put 2 in each? If someone could explain this to me I'd be extremely grateful, because I really need to know, and i can't ask my mom because its something I'm making for her and I'm trying to be very discreet about it...

Any help is appreciated Smiley

  You insert your hook into the first chain and do your double crochet, then repeat in that same chain 8 more times.  Trust me, they'll fit unless you're an insanely tight crocheter.  It sounds like you're making something circular.  You'll end up with a little disk of 10 double crochets (the 3 chains in between the first one and the one on your hook form one DC too)

I had wondered if it was missing something.  Most circular crochet starts with a joined circle and you make the stitches within the circle and around the ring of chain.  However, there are some things that have you make stitches within one stitch of a chain- like shell stitch.  Hard to say from this distance.  Glad you got it figured out.

Cheers!
