doily help

Can someone please help me understand what this means...."Ch 3, dc in same st as beg ch-3, sk 3, sk 1 dc, (2 dc in next dc, ch 3, sk 1 dc) rep around.
I understand that ch. is 'chain' and dc is 'double crochet. But what does sk mean? From googling it, it seems it means to skip a stitch - but how do I skip 3 st and then 1 dc when the preceding round was all dc?
I'm still a beginner to crocheting, but this pattern said it was beginner friendly! Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

What's the pattern? The only thing I can think of is that the sk 3 is in reference to skipping the other chains of your initial ch-3. Then skip a dc then work two dc in the next dc, etc.,

the pattern is on freepatterns.com at http://www.freepatterns.com/detail.html?code=FC00225&cat_id=308
I was able to find someone who figured it out, and it was a typo in the patter. The sk 3 is supposed to be a ch 3. Thank you for your help as well though! I am so glad to have found this forum for when I need some help. :)

I think that > sk 3, is a Mis- print > I think I would try a > ch 3 !
