alright so here's the pattern: http://bundlesoflove.org/CrochetedBabySweater

this is what I'm having problems with

Row 2: *Skip ch3 space, DC to first Ch1 space, work (DC, Ch1, DC) in Ch1 space, repeat
from * three more times, DC to end, Ch3, turn.

maybe I'm just tired but that makes no sense. What do they mean skip the DC in the first CH1 space. What? What chain one space? I'm working on the second row doesn't that mean I'm done with the chain? Can someone please simplify it for me.

I can wist with the best of them.

Although I have not done this pattern, and strictly speaking from reading the pattern and your response to it...
 I would have to say that after you have done the ch 3 at the end of the last round, you would disregard the first ch3 and you would DC in the 1st ch space and then continue as the pattern says.
  I hope this is helpful to you  Smiley
 All those DC's a ch's and sc's  don't make too much sense when you are tired though... it is like reading another language... I understand.. after having two children...

It sounds to me that after you make your turning chain (if any), you skip the 3-ch space in the previous row (just don't do anything with it), then do one dc in each stitch of the previous row until you get to the ch-1 space, then do the thing in the brackets there.

after waking up and reading it this morning it DOES make sense.

I guess I was just really tired.
