This is a L-O-N-G post.
I'm still not sure exactly what is giving you trouble. Let's try working through this (as much as we can in words without pictures).
2nd row:
Ch 3. Miss first 2 dc and ch-1 sp. 1 dc in next ch-1 sp. Ch 1. (1 dc in next ch-1 sp. Ch 1) twice. *(1 dc. Ch 1) 4 times in next ch-1 sp. (1 dc in next ch-1 sp. Ch 1) twice. 1 dc in next ch-1 sp.** Miss next: ch-1 sp, 2 dc and ch-1 sp. (1 dc in next ch-1 sp. Ch 1) 3 times. Rep from * 8 times more, then from * to ** once. Miss last 2 dc. 1 dc in top of turning ch 3. Turn.
Expanded version:
1. Chain 3. (This will be a substitute for a regular dc.)
2. Skip the first 2 dc and the first space that was created by a "chain 1" of the previous row (notated as "ch-1 sp"). Find the ch-1 sp after that and work a dc in that. Chain 1.
3a. In the following ch-1 sp, work a dc; chain 1
3b. In the next ch-1 sp, work a dc; chain 1 (that's now "twice")
*
4. All in the next ch-1 sp:
a. dc, ch1,
b. dc, ch1,
c. dc, ch1,
d. dc, ch1 (that's a total of 4 times, all in that one ch-1 sp)
5a. In the following ch-1 sp, work a dc; chain1.
5b. In the next ch-1 sp, work a dc; chain 1 (that's now "twice")
6. In the next ch-1 sp, work a dc.
**
7. Skip the following ch-1 sp, the next 2 dc and the next ch-1 sp.
a. In the following ch-1 sp, work a dc; chain 1
b. In the following ch-1 sp, work a dc; chain 1
c. In the following ch-1 sp, work a dc; chain 1 (that's a total of 3 times)
Now go back to * and repeat everything to the end (that is, steps 4 through 7c) 8 more times.
After that, go back to * and repeat everything down to the ** (that is, steps 4 through 6), then skip ahead to the next instructions.
8. Skip the last 2 dc.
Find the "chain 3" (which substitutes for a dc): When you started row 1, you worked the first dc in the 4th chain, so there are 3 chains left unworked. Work a dc in the top of that. Turn.
If you still have problems, could you tell us which step is causing you trouble?
