    Learning to read patterns

    Learning to read patterns

    I'm so confused... please someone help!!! It's times like these that I miss my grandma so much.. but, enough of that before I cry... Problem: Row 2: ch 1, sc in first st, *ch 3, dc dec (see Stitch Guide) in next 2 ch-3 sps, ch 3**, sc in center dc of next dc group, rep from* across, ending last rep at **, 2 dc in last st, turn. The first row had me dc multiple times in one stitch, and I am pretty sure I have that figured out... it resembles the picture, lol, but I'm stumped on row 2, I think it means: chain 1, then single chain into first stitch, then chain 3, and stitch guide gives 2 definitions for dc dec, one is two phrases, double crochet, and decrease, the other acts like dc dec is one phrase, double crochet 2 or more stitches together, as the pattern states???? Then 3 spaces???? Then chain 3, then single chain into the center of the double crochet group from row 1, repeat until the end and do 2 double crochet in the last stitch, turn.... I'm horribly confused by dc dec, and the spaces... please help
