I need help understand this pattern can someone please help me. Here is the pattern. Bottom of the bootie - bootie is made crocheting in the back loops ONLY throughout to make ridges.
ROW 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across. Ch 1, turn (26sc)
ROW 2: Sc in each sc across row (26 sc), ch 1, turn. ROW 3-8: repeat row 2, except on row 8, don't ch 1 at the end, just turn.
ROW 9 (forms the top of bootie): sl st in the first 5 sts, ch 1 (counts as one sc), and make 1 sc in the same st, sc in the next few sts leaving the last 4 sts unworked. Chain 1, turn
ROW10-16:scineachscacross,ch1ateachendofrow, donotchain1atendoflastrow. (for the last 2 rows you can change colors if you wish)
End off. Thanks in advance for the help
