So, i fell over this skirt pattern, and decided to make it.

But, I am stuck at one piece of the pattern.
It is the "patricia Pepe" skirt.

This is the piece were I am stuck. The first 5 rows. I can sort of figure it out, and then again no.


I think it is poorly drawn, and when I look at the finished product, it does not look like, what I would do.
Can someone please help me so I can make this beautiful skirt.

Oh gee whiz, I think you are right. It looks poorly drawn. Can you contact the author and get some clarification?

Have you put a lot of work into it already? Maybe you could just look at the stitches for reference to help fill in the gaps from the pattern....I don't really know what to suggest otherwise  Undecided

Found some explanation in Ravelry comments about how to read the markup:

"Well, if you print out the graphs and line them up it will be a lot clearer how it works. They are colour-coded, so for example you line up the gold stars in one graph with the gold stars in another and youll see how theyre connected. In the graphs, I take the dots to mean chains, the long dashes to mean double crochet and the little crosses to be single crochet. The upside-down vs, or lambda shapes, are decreases.
The most confusing graph is cxema 5. Cxema 5 is basically the pattern for the bottom edging of the skirt and it features alternating little pineapples and larger shells. I think here the tiny circles mean chains this time. Perhaps the crosses with double bar mean triple crochet, though if you substitute double crochet that will work too. There are also little dewdrop symbols along the top and I dont know what those are supposed to mean.
This skirt is on my to-do list and I did start writing out a pattern of it for myself, though once I figured out how the colour-coding is supposed to work it seemed like it would be possible just from the charts.
Hope this helps."
