I am teaching myself to crochet and I need to know when a pattern says chain multies o4 plus 9 what does that mean.
Thanks Huh

It means you chain 4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 24 (etc.) and add 9 more chains to make 13, 17, 21, 25, or 33.

When you see this in a stitch pattern it's because the pattern needs a certain number of stitches to repeat plus some extra at the end for turning. You just have to figure out how wide you want whatever is is you're making to be, make a chain that is a multiple of four, and then do an extra nine chains after that (as cjgeo said).
