Herringbone Stitch

I am working a pattern that appears to have a Herringbone stitch. I am not sure how to proceed. Here are the instructions:
ch 3 (counts as dc). *Miss next 3 hdc, 1 dtr in next hdc. Working in front of last dtr, 1 dc in each of 3 missed hdc

I am not sure if I start at the first skipped hdc or the 3rd skipped hdc.
Also, what does it mean working in front?

The next row is similar as above but it says to work in back. Can anyone decipher?
