I picked this pattern because it's labeled "Easy Peasie Beginner," and I know how to do all the stitches needed for the blanket. I'm also familiar with crochet abbreviations. However, these instructions are not painting an "easy peasie" picture in my head:
1st row: (1 dc. Ch 1. 1 dc) in 5th ch from hook (counts as dc. Skip 2 ch). *Skip next 2 ch. (1 dc. Ch 1. 1 dc) in next ch. Rep from * to last 3 ch. Skip next 2 ch. 1 dc in last ch. Turn.
Could someone whose brain works in the necessary way PLEASE translate that into easy peasie language? What does the first set in parentheses mean? W
