Ok, I'm new to crocheting and I'm working on my 2nd project. The instructions are confusing to me...can someone explain what this means in english please.... :)

Rnd 1 (Right side); Ch 1 (3 sc in ring, ch4) 4 times; join with slip st to first sc: 12 sc and 4 ch-4sps.

Just before that part of the instructions it had me ch 6; join with slip st to form a ring. - i have this part done. Then I did 1 chain per the beginning of the Rnd 1 instructions. But I got stuck after that..not a good sign to start off my project. Can you offer me some help here?
