Welcome to the 'ville!  It sounds like you are making a picot.  It is not impossible to 'work in the wrong direction', crochet is very flexible.  However, it's a little brain-bending to do that strange movement, but trust me, it works.  Example, besides picots, there's an edging called 'reverse SC' that has you making SCs from left to right, which makes a sturdy rope-looking edging which is nice for washcloths and other things.  

So when you make a DC, chain 4, then slst in the top of the same dc, you are making a closed loop, which makes a decorative 'bump', usually for a final edging.  Or, snowflakes typically use picots.

Here is a youtube that's showing a picot into a SC not DC but the same concept - she is also showing you 2 ways to do it, you may find 1 way easier than the other.
