Hi I have no idea what this means. so here goes

First I cast on: 12 dc, 1ss to close (which I understand)

2nd rnd:  2 x 2 dc in the same st, in corner st: 1 dc, 1 tr, 1dc repeat around  (HELP what does this all mean??)

 PS I understand the stitch terms just not what to do and where to put them!  THANKS anyone out there!

is that directly copied from the pattern? and is there anything before the first round?  if it's an online pattern could you link me to it so i can see it also?

To my understanding, this is how it works.

*2dc in same stitch, 2 dc in next stitch, dc, tr,dc in third stitch.*
Repeat * * three more times to make four sides/corners.

WORK PLAN: the pattern consist of 2 identical patterned bands each consisting o f 4 circular shapes which are crocheted so that the  2 middle ones form squares and the 2 outer ones form pointed triangles.  (then you sew them  along  a pattern in the book)   The pattern exact is

Cast on rnd: 12 dc, ss to close
2nd rnd: 2 x2 dc in same st, in corner st: 1 dc, 1 tr, 1dc repeat all the way around

cast on rnd: 12 dc, 1ss to close
2nd rnd: 3 h dc in corner st, 2 h dc, 3 hdc in corner st , 3 h dc, in corner: 1 h dc, 1 dc, 1 tr, next st : 1 tr 1 dc, 1 hdc

Theres more for the crown but Maybe I should stop here
IT's an amazing book called "practical modern crochet" by vibeke lind

Thanks so much!

wow...i have never seen instructions worded like this before, that's why i asked.  well, i'm going to assume that somewhere in the book it told you how many to chain and then join to form a circle. if not, try a 5 or 6 ch and sl st to join.  or your crocheting onto an already made circular form. 12 dc, sl st to close, that forms the first round.  second round. if you tied off after your first round, then place 2 dc in one stitch. if your not tieing off, then after the join ch 3 and place 1 dc in the same stitch that your ch 3 originated from.  after you do either one of those, place 2 dc in the next st, the 1 dc, 1 tr, 1 dc, all in the next stitch.  this will be repeated ( 2 dc in next stitch, 2 dc in next stitch, 1 dc 1 tr 1 dc in next stich) all the around. you should wind up with 4 "sets" of this.  i'm also assuming that you sl st to join them.  as for the triangle, same as above, 12 dc, sl st to close. if your tieing off do a hdc, if your continuing ch 2, place the next 2 hdc in the same stitch as the first hdc/ch 2.  this creates your first corner i believe. place 1 hdc in each of the next 2 st.  place 3 hdc all in the next stitch.  place 1 hdc in each of the next 3 sts.  place 1 hdc 1 dc 1 tr all in the next stitch, and 1 tr 1 dc 1 hdc all in the next stitch.   the pattern for the triangle doesn't seem to match up in my head, so maybe if they have a picture of it, you could try counting the stitches and seeing where exactly they're being placed.  hope this helps a bit, the instructions are somewhat confusing.
