Can anyone help me with this line? Im not sure why its throwing me for a loop.  Do I " 3 dc, 1sc in loop, chain 5, sc in next loop" or do i " 3dc, 1sc in loop" over and over?

Row 4: Ch 5, sc in ch-5 lp, * 3 dc in next sc, sc in next lp **, ch 5, sc in next lp; rep from * to last sc, end at **; ch 2, dc in last sc; turn.

Thanks for any help, I'm stumped.. lol.

(Here is the pattern, if it helps!)

Thanks for the response! Lol, it seems like the more i look at it, the more confusing and complicated I make it. I think they did write it weirdly... Sad

Row 4: Ch 5, sc in ch-5 lp, * 3 dc in next sc, sc in next lp **, ch 5, sc in next lp; rep from * to last sc, end at **; ch 2, dc in last sc; turn.

First, divide this row into sections.

1) before *: Ch 5, sc in ch-5 lp
2) between * and **: 3dc in next sc, sc in next lp
3) after **: ch 5, sc in next lp
4) repeat instructions: rep from * to last sc, end at **
5) end of row: ch 2, dc in last sc; turn

You follow the instructions literally.  So, ignore the asterisks for a second.  You do sections (1), (2), (3), (4).  Now, once you reach section (4) it tells you to repeat from the asterisk until the last sc.  Where's the asterisk?  Right before section (2), so you do (2) and (3) over and over until on your work, you have one sc left.  On your last repeat, you'll have one sc left after you finish section (2), so you should not do section (3).  Instead you continue with the pattern after the repeat instructions, and you do section (5).

Thank you so much for your help!!!!  Grin   Grin 

The entire pattern is filled with those, so hopefully after that explanation I should be able to do it with no problem!
