hi, I am a beginner at crochet i am just getting to grip swith its starange and wonder ways but I got a bit stumped at this one. Could someone please explain what this pattern is tell me to do I would like to make this scarf from my sister for xmas but my brain hurts when I try to work it out ...

The pattern is from Fuzzy Galore, a super site (http://www.fuzzygalore.biz/patterns/spiral.shtml)

Row 1: chain 80 for the foundation row.
Row 2: ch 2, turn, double-crochet into 3rd chain and then again into every chain till end of row.
Row 3: ch 2, turn, double-crochet into first stitch below, (double-crochet twice into next stitch below)* repeat till end of row.
Row 4: repeat row 3 (each row will be twice as long as the previous one).
Bind off, work ends in with a yarn needle. Do not block.

Its Row 3 I don't get, not sure what its means, just double crochet twice into next stitch or all of the stitches in the row ?

Thank you advance for any help with this

Basically, you're doing two double crochets in to each one in the previous row, making an increase - such a rapid increase is what causes the ruffled edge of the scarf.

As an aside, thanks for the link - the pattern is actually just what I've been looking for today!
