After you formed your ring you work one chain to begin your first round of 10 sc. You close this round by sl stitching into the ch-1 which stands for "chain one." This is a pretty common abbreviation so get used to seeing it. The "- 10 sc's" is just to let you know that the round ended with 10 sc to help you maintain count.

To make two sc in one sc, make a sc in the sc from the round below. Then insert your hook into the same sc and make a second one. This is an increase which changes one stitch into two.
