I take Row 2 instructions to mean work the 11-dc groups in the chain-5 spaces, alternating with one sc in the chain-6 spaces, and when you get to the last chain space (which in pattern would be a space where a sc goes), there's special instructions to sc in a specific chain.  

A person could take the Note to explain why the end is called the beginning.  Experience tells me it's a good idea to keep track of which edge you are working from, and towards.

What book is that?  Now I'm all intrigued by that pattern!

Edit to add, I think I found it Coral Capelet (link to pattern page at Ravelry)

SC in DC

then AROUND the loop formed by 5 chains (5-ch space) you put 11 DC--yes you can cram that many there--they will spread out and help you reach to the next step,

(start of a repeat)  SC AROUND the loop formed by 6 chains (the ch-6 space), then you put 11 DCs AROUND the ch-5 space (end of repeat)

To work around a chain space, pretend the span of chains is the top 2 loops of a normal stitch, and work around the chain as you would work around the 2 loops of the top of a normal stich.

This is a common lace maneuver;  the SC sort of cinches up the chain loop it's sitting in, so half of the chain sort of 'hangs out next to' one DC shell (as if it were a DC in the shell), and the other half of the chain 'hangs out next to' the next DC shell...this sounds weird, it will make sense when you do it.  (I hope)

In row 1 you sc in the 8th chain from the hook.  These chains are what row 2 is calling the beginning 7 skipped chains.

That's a cute little cape.  Just the kind of thing I like.  It is too bad that we have to buy a book to get the pattern and also too bad that half the patterns are for knitted items.  Oh well...
