Gah, if someone could please help me before I tear my hair out and destroy all my yarn, I'd GREATLY appreciate it.
I think this may just be me being an idiot. That or the pattern's written out weird, and it's not clicking in my brain the way it should. Either way, I'm doing something horribly wrong. I'm trying to crochet a Cthulhu, based on a pattern from Cthulhu Crochet and Cousins. What I'm SUPER stuck on is the wings. The pattern reads like this:

Wings (make 2)
Ch 7. Turn and do 1 sc in each of next 6 ch sps. Ch 1, turn. 6 sc, ch 6. (here's where I get confused) turn. skip first ch, 3 sc on chain, hdc to end of row. Ch1, turn. 6 sc, ch 7, skip first ch, 4 sc in chain, hdc to end of row. Ch1, turn. 7 sc, ch 7, skip first ch, 4 sc in chain, hdc to end of row. Ch1, turn. 8 sc, ch 7, skip first ch, 4 sc in chain, hdc to end of row.Ch1, turn. 9 sc, ch 7, skip first ch, 2 sc in chain, hdc to end of row. Ch 3 *Work appox. 8 dc along the top edge of the wing (opposite the pointy bits). Sl St into first Ch, or near first Ch. Fasten off, leave long tail for sewing.

The girl that runs the site has a tutorial, but it's for smaller wings and it's confusing me just as much. http://cthulhucrochet.blogspot.com/2009/09/wing-tutorial-for-tiny-cthulhu.html

Reject only your ignorance, and you may survive.

I think you would chain the 6, skip the first stitch, sc into next 3 and hdc in the rest of the stitches.

The same thing happened to me. I finally got it after many attempts but one wing turned out wonkier than the other and I really couldn't be assed to continue. Also, because they were made the same way, one curls in and the other curls out.
