Okay, so I'm working on a baby blanket for my best-friend's baby...and I've finished the first row...(look at the pretty shells) and I start on the second row and the pattern instructions are completely confounding to me.

They simply don't make sense...

Here is what the pattern says exactly:

ROW 2: With CA (white yarn), ch 5, *skip next sp, sc in next sp, ch 2, skip next sp, dc in next sc**, ch 2; rep from * across, end at ** and chate to CB (yellow yarn) in last dc; turn.

Okay, I interpret that to mean I chain 5 and insert my hook in the space marked below with a black arrow...or should I go to the red arrow...if I start at the black arrow...then where do i go after that?

Someone help!

Ok, so it's kinda hard to tell from the picture but I interperate that to be the black arrow... what it looks like the previous row is, is a double crochet then a chain stitch, then another double? Ususally you go in the little hole that the chain stitch makes between the two double crochet's ( I am pretty sure that is where you are indicating with the black arrow), that would be a space, as opposed to splitting the "v" of the chain stitch to make your next move. Does that help? Good luck!!!

Looking at the picture you posted, it looks like your first row was a sc to divide the shells, with each shell being a (dc, ch1, dc, ch1, dc, ch1, dc). Am I correct? This means you ended your first row with a sc. The ch 5 you start row 2 with is your dc (ch 3) and the ch 3 sp in between each dc and sc. I would ch 5, sc in the middle sp of the shell, ch 2, dc in the sc between shells, across to the end. Clear as mud?
If you need more help just holler!

May all your projects be frog-less, and all your patterns error-free!
