Ah, okay, I see about the 'miss sc behind tr'. It's pretty much telling me don't continue on and sc in the sc that the tr covers on the current row.

As for the tr- I feel so stupid, like everyone gets this and I don't. :-) When I try to do it, it comes out so weird looking and not what it should look like, (according to the picture). I tried fixing my tension, or tried not pulling the loop through the stitch 4 rows below so tight. I brought the loop up to current level to work on. At the end of the tr, it was all on top at current level. In other words, what it keeps ending up looking like is: from the 4 rows below there are 2 strands of yarn that go up to current level (like the long stitch) and then at current level is where the loops are that should be going around those 2 strands of yarn below (to make it actually look like the tr). It's like the loops that make the tr won't go down the yarn to make the tr that covers the rows below, like they are caught up at the top. I tried "investigating" why everything is at top and not going down. It almost looks like the yarn from the back side that I am yarning over with after I pulled a loop through the stitch is keeping everything up top, but that is just a guess... I think I am doing something wrong with the yarn-over or when I work the yarn from front to back to do the loops.
Can someone take me step by step what I should do, (or knows of a website where I can see this done; I love visual aids, if possible...)?
I know how to do a triple crochet, but for some reason it is not coming out right when I try to do it 4 rows below! Why am I having so much trouble?
