Ch 213 loosely

ROW 1: Dc in fith ch from hook, * + ch 1, (skip next ch, dc in next ch, ch 1) twice, [YO, skip next ch, insert hook in next ch, YO and pull up a loop YO and dwar thriugh 2 loops on hook, YO, skip next 3 chs, insert hook in next ch, YO and pull up a loop, YO and draw through 2 loops on hook, YO and draw through all 3 loops on hook {counts as ine dc}], ch 1, (skip next ch, dc in next ch, ch 1) twice, skip next ch +, (dc, ch 3, dc) in next ch; repeat from * 11 times more, then repeat from + to + once, (dc, ch 1, dc) in last ch: 92 dc and 92 sps

ROW 2: (Right side): Ch 4 (counts are first dc plus ch 1, now and throughout), turn: dc in same st, ch 1, (dc in next dc, ch 1) twice, decrease, ch 1, (dc in next dc, ch 1) twice, * (dc, ch 3, dc) in next ch-3 sp, ch 1, (dc in next dc, ch 1) twice, decrease, ch 1, (dc in next dc, ch 1) twice: repeat from * across to last sp, skip next ch, (dc, ch 1, dc) in next ch changing to green in last dc (fig. 8, page 23): 93 dc and 92 sps.

ROW 3: Ch 4, turn: dc in same st, ch 1, (dc in next dc, ch 1) twice, decrease, ch 1, (dc in next dc, ch 1) twice, * (dc, ch 3, dc) in next ch-3 sp, ch 1, (dc in next dc, ch 1) twice, decrease, ch 1, (dc in next dc, ch 1) twice: repeat from * across to last dc, (dc, ch 1, dc) in last dc.

row 4 is almost a repeat... from there i repeat rows 3 and 4 to the end

so if you can make sense of this please help

i got this from Ripples for Baby. its from Leisure Arts little book. seems to be rather common. if you happen to have this book its #6 Seafoam Waves on page 16. i had no problem with row 1 but row 2 i just cant seem to get a grasp on.

something lacking in directions

As written, these directions do not make sense. For instance, a ch-4 to start a row is not uncommon, but immediately turning, with no direction to turn back and many more things simply don't add up. Is there a website with this pattern, or can you be more precise in writing it?

I can answer the "dc, ch-3, dc in the next ch-3 space" question. On the previous row you must have made a pattern that incorporates a stitch, a ch-3, and another stitch. The ch-3 forms a little hole underneath it. On the next row, when it calls for the above directions, insert your hook into the hole and work a dc, ch-3, and another dc all in that hole. You'll be working around the ch-3 of the previous row instead of into any particular stitch.
