Help Reading Line of Pattern

Recommended Posts

Does the bold text in the following instruction mean that I should do a single crochet in the first stitch of the round then 2 single crochets in the second stitch of the round? 

Round 1: Ch 1, [1 sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc] 5 times, sl st to first sc of round to join. (15 sc)

I agree with your interpretation.  So you have 10 stitches ahead of you to work, and you will fill them with a total of 15 stitches by increasing every second stitch (saying the same thing, a different way)

See the 'pattern grammar' at the craft yarn council site , scroll down a little past half way for parentheses and bracket usage (lots of other good stuff there, too, see menu on the right side, top)
