I just taught myself to crochet online using YouTube videos last week. I want to make a scarf for my mom. The pattern I like is posted on Lion's website (http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/L0435B.html). I've started it about 5 times but it doesn't look right at all. I guess I don't really know what "skip" or "space" means... I've tried searching the internet, but I can't figure this out! Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Here's the pattern also:
Row 1: Dc in 5th ch from hook (first 4 skipped chs make turning ch-sp), dc in next ch, *(dc, ch 3, dc) in next ch, skip next ch, dc in next 2 ch; rep from * across to last ch, dc in last ch - 3 pattern reps at the end of this row.
Row 2: Ch 4 (for turning ch-sp), turn, *(3 dc, ch 3, dc) in next ch-3 sp; rep from * across to turning ch-sp, 3 dc in turning ch-sp.
Rep last row until almost all yarn has been used. Scarf should measure about 76 in. (193 cm). Fasten off.
