I've never been strong with patterns, but this one is giving me a head ache.  How would you translate this little fragment:

"dc in next tr in next-sk l dc on rnd 1" 

So, what i figured, it is "double crochet in next (then, there should be a coma, i think) triple crochet in next and then skip (L? )  double crochet on round 1 (except it all is just a part of one round... so...)"

I am lost! Please help. I have been googling and searching through this website, but so far, no definitive answer.

Is the pattern on a website?  If so, can you link to it?

No, it's not on a website.  I have it on paper, and I am not sure i can publish it (the owner/creator forbid it..).   I am not sure how that ownership works, but I don't want to make any crocheters mad. Smiley

Publishing it here would be against copyright rules, you're right.  Is there a way to contact the designer?  That would be the next thing I'd try.

What is the name of the pattern?  Maybe someone will recognize it if they'd made it before.

If all else fails, send me a PM, we'll see if we can sort it out. ^_^

Contacting the designer is a good idea.  I will try that first. 

This is the pattern http://www.etsy.com/listing/45092215/crochet-pattern-womens-starlet-cloche, in case anyone here has it and can help me out. 

Thanks very much fantasticmio!

Here is what I think:

double crochet in next, triple crochet in next, skip 1 double crochet on round 1.

Is that fragment exactly what is in your pattern? there are no directions between * *'s for repetitions?
If it isn't a pattern from a publication or yarn brand site, it might just be that whoever wrote it made an error.

I contacted the person who created the pattern and she actually noticed the errors she made.  She was very nice and re-wrote the pattern for me, so that it made more sense. 

Thank you all for helping. Smiley
