trouble with pattern

I have to make a baby bunting bag by Aug. My problem is I have never heard of a 4 or 9 dcl. The directions read as follows,
4dcl (YOH. draw up a loop in next st. YOH and draw through 2 loops on hook) 4 times. Yoh and draw through 5 loops on hook.

9dcl ( yoh. draw up a loop in next st. Yoh and draw through 2 loops on hook) 9 times. Yoh and draw through 10 loops on hook.

does not matter how many times I try this I keep getting 4 loops as if doing a DC

Illustrations would help me a great deal on this one.

Thanks. Ang

Ok lets give this a try.

1. Yarn over hook and draw up a loop in next stitch, you should have 3 loops on hook, YO draw thru 2 of those loops you now have 2 loops on hook

2. yarn over and draw a loop in next stitck, you should now have 4 loops on hook,YO draw thru 2 of those loops, you now have 3 loops on hook

3. yarn over and draw up a loop in next stitch, you should now have 5 loops on hook, YO draw thru 2 of those loops, you now have 4 loops on hook

4, yarn over and draw up a loop in next stitch, you should know have 6 loops on hook,YO draw thru 2 of those loops you now have 5 loops left on hook, YO draw up a loOP thru all 5 loops on hook

You do the same steps as above for the 9dcl until you have 10 loops left on hook and draw thru all 10

Hope this helps.

Here's an illustration to go along with carolishere's excellent directions.
