Just started on this bolero and I have quite successfully managed the first pass through rows 2 to 9. However, upon going back to start the repetition I ran into a problem. The instructions for row 9 specify "ch2, sk next 2 ch-2 spaces" several times, but the instruction for row 2 expect that I should be able to "ch2, sc in next ch-2 space, ch 2, sk next ch-2 space". How can that work when I just spent row 9 eliminating half of those ch2 spaces?

I've tried running through the pattern anyway and just making the sc stitches into the ch2 spaces but it comes out looking very squashed together. Should I just forge on and hope this tricky transition row gets neatened up by the rows on top of it?

Ack! I'm a fool. I examined the pattern diagram and realised that I was mistaking the pairs of FPdc from row 9 for V-stitches. Anyone else who is confused over this part of the pattern - that's the solution!
