Trouble Understanding Pattern

I'm trying to make a baby blanket and I'm not sure if I'm following the pattern correctly.

There is a foundation row that is dc in next 2 ch skip 2 ch. I'm ok with that.

Row 1: Ch 1, sc in first st, ch 2, sk next 2 sts, *2 DS, ch 2, sk next 2 sts* to turning ch, sc in top of turning chain, turn

Row 2: Ch 2 *2 DS, ch 2, sk next 2 sts* to last ch-2 sp, 2 DS, hdc in last st.

Repeat rows 1 & 2

Instructions for a DS (Drop Stitch) are: working around next ch-2 sp, dc in next skipped ch or st 2 rows below.

It doesn't make sense to me. Row 1 is only stitched to Row 3 and Row 2 is only stitched to the Foundation Row. It is like a V. Two blankets only connected at the bottom. Is this correct? I don't want to get too far only to find I'm doing it wrong. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
