Not being one for patiently and correctly learning a craft, I picked up the happy hooker book and started teaching myself the stitches needed for the sweet pea shawl. The first line has gone fine, and I have a chain with a set of shells on it. The instructions for the next line have blown my mind however.

From looking at the picture, it appears that you are supposed to single crochet into the top of each shell, chain 3, double crochet half way down the side of the shell, chain 3, double crochet into theside of thenext shell, chain 3, single crochet the top of the shell (which is what Im doing, and it looks relatively similar to the picture, which seems alright).

But in the instructions it keeps saying things like "skip next chain -2 space"; "sk next 2 ch - 1 spaces". Can anyone shed any light on what these instructions actually mean in case I ever end up trying to follow instructions without a picture?
