Also here is a guide to the symbols https://dancingbarefoot.wordpress.com/2010/02/01/tutorial-lesson-3a-crochet/

in your pattern, the symbol that is like a V with an x inside it is an sc increase, make two sc in that stitch.  The one like an upside down v with an x inside is a decrease, or sc2tog (sc two together).  Tutorial https://www.fiberfluxblog.com/2015/02/how-to-single-crochet-two-together-or.html

I think it is making something in two colors, the inner part with the outline around it is a different color.  Tell me if that much makes sense, and I can go on and tell you how I think it is done.  

Also, do you understand all the stitch symbols, the chain, slip stitch, increase and decrease?  The book probably has a key to help with that if needed.

Hmm well still I think the outline means you make the inner piece first, then border it.  Otherwise I have no idea why the outlines are shown. 

Can you tell us the name of the book, or the ISBN .  Also how the specific pattern is identified, the name of it if in English, or the pattern number or page number.

Thanks for the link to the symbols, I've done many charted patterns but there are a bunch of new-to-me symbols there.
