I started making a round ripple a few days ago off of this pattern:

I finished round four, but I cant go any further. Round five is just very confusing.  Can anyone try to explain it alittle simplier?

What part of that row is confusing you the most?

From what I can make of it, round 4 should be made up of dc's and ch. 2 spaces. In round 5 you start by just slip stiching into the next stitch and chaining 3.

From there, work 2 dc, ch 2, and 2 more dc in the first ch 2 space of the previous round. Dc in the next stitch (it should be a dc immediately after the ch 2 space of the previous round), skip the next 2 stitches (again, should be dc's), and then dc in the next stitch (another dc).

This should bring you to another ch 2 space, where you start working that all over again.

Hope this helped a bit anyway.

So at the end of round 4 you slip right? Then you slip again or does the first one count?

I would read it as joining, then slipping again in the next stitch. From reading the pattern, I think this would mean that the initial chain 3 in round 5 would be in the first dc of round 4 so you would be able to the immediately start working the stitches in the ch 2 space without having to skip a stitch.

Ok and after you 2dc 2ch 2dc I don't really understand the whole skipping thing. Ive been crocheting for 3 years yet I still can get confused by patterns.

So I figured out and have finished up to the end of round 6, but I'm a little confused on if you finish out the dc in the next two stocked skip two then two more dc or just finish out the last shell and slip.

Okay, so you 2dc 2ch 2dc in the same ch 2 space, right? Then 1 dc in the following stitch. So when you need to skip 2 stitch you literally just skip over them and don't work any new stitches in them. There's a good picture of that here:


So in your pattern you would have a dc, then two stitches that you skipped and didn't do anything with, and another dc after those two. Then you should be back at a ch 2 space to start repeating the pattern.

And don't worry about not being able to read patterns. I've been crocheting since I was seven and still need to bother my mom or look things up online sometimes. Smiley
