Bernet Baby Sport Blanket - Join 1st motif to 2nd motif?

Hi,

I am new to crochet and am crocheting a lovely baby blanket. I did well until I tried to join the 1st motif to the 2nd. I have included instructions for the 1st and 2nd motifs. I am having trouble with the following:

******With RS of 1st Motif facing, join to left top corner of 1st Motif as follows: Ch 3. Sl st in 4th ch of corner ch of 1st Motif. Ch 3. 2 dc in same st. 1 dc in each of next 3 sts. Sl st in 3rd dc on side edge of 1st Motif. 1 dc in each of next 2 sts. 2 dc in sl st. Ch 3. Sl st in 4th ch of next corner of 1st Motif. Ch 3. 1 dc in same sl st. Sl st in top of ch 3. Fasten off.*******

Do I lay the 2nd motif on the 1st, and work backwards beginning with the top left corner? Or does the pattern mean - lay motifs side by side on the left-?

Which stitch do I apply to which motif, when not specified by the pattern?

I could sure use some advice. Thanks in advance:)

INSTRUCTIONS
