I found these balls I want to crochet... mind you, I just learned the basic dish cloth a few days ago... the pattern says its easy but I just don't get how to do it. It starts...

ch2 , then join stiches with a sl st
6sc into second chain from hook
2sc in each of 6 sts of previous round

I'm lost after ch2!!!!
Can anyone help or do I need to find someone to "show me" in person?

ThankS!!!!

Okay, I know what it means, but I'm not sure how well I can describe it...here we go:

After you chain 2, put the hook through the chain at the opposite end (which isn't far since it is only 2 chains).  Loop the yarn around the hook and bring it right through both the far end chain and the one that was already on the hook (that's your sl st: slip stitch).  Check following link for pictures/videos
http://www.stitchguide.com/stitches/crochet/stitch_pages/cro_slip_stitch.html

Now, count to the second chain from where your hook is and do 6 single crochets all in that same stitch.  After that, do 2 single crochets in each of the 6 stitchs you just made.  (you will be going around in a circle at this point)

However, I have seen patterns that do this instead (which I prefer):
Chain 2 (though I prefer 3 for size of circle) and do the slip stitch.
Now (as opposed to the original directions that require putting many stitches into a single stitch), make 6 single crochets into the hole within the circle (that you made by slip stitching your chain together...not into any stitches).  Then do 2 single crochets into each of the 6 stitches you just made (again, you're going in a circle at this point.

For some reason, some patterns call for you to create a bunch of stitches inside 1 when it seems much sturdier to make them within the center of the circle you created....

Anyway, I hope this helps.
