Ok, so I'm making this pattern -http://angelscrochet.com/patterns/lacyscalloppat.php - as a (very) last minute present and I think my brains got frazzeled in the rush Cheesy So I'm getting confused with a couple of lines in particular:

Rnd 6: ch 4, dc in same st as joining, sk next 2 st, (*dc, ch 1, dc in next st*, sk next 2 st) around, sl st in 3rd ch of starting ch-4. (20 dc, ch 1, dc st)

Rnd 7-11: sl st into ch-1 sp, ch 4, dc in same sp, *dc, ch 1, dc* in each ch-1 sp around, sl st in 3rd ch of starting ch-4. (20 dc, ch 1, dc st)

I'd done line 6 and thought I'd done it wrong but then looked at rnd 7 and got very confused Cheesy For rnd 6 I did all the first bit and then just repeated all the stuff in the bracket all the way around. And then I looked at the end bracket - is that telling me that I am supposed to have 20dc all the way around, because I have about 40 Cheesy Or is it telling me more stuff that I'm supposed to do - and if it is where am I supposed to be doing it. Huh

Anyway i thought I'd leave the mystery of rnd 6 and go straight on to rnd 7 - more confusion occurs! Its all crochet to me Shocked I'm sure its very simple but...ack i donno what its asking me to do.

As I'm sure you can tell I'm fairly new to this crocheting malarky and I think I have just confused myself by over thinking  ::)If anyone could just give me a little bit of translation I could probably work it out. Thanks in advance, Hannah

I think what it's trying to say at the end of round 6 is that you ought to have 20 of the "dc, ch 1, dc" groups, which would be 40 dc in total, so I think you probably did it correctly.

For round 7, you slip stitch into the first ch1 space from round 6, then chain 4, and then do a double crochet into that same ch1 space, which will create a loopy vaguely triangular bit.  Then you go to the next ch1 space from round 6 and do the group of *dc, ch1, dc* all in that same ch1 space.  Repeat that around for all the ch1 spaces from round 6, then join as instructed.  And then, again, you will end up with 20 groups of *dc, ch1, dc*, so 40 dc total in the round.

I hope that helps!
