Question

Hi,

I am doing a pattern where the following instructions are given and I just can not work out what they mean...

I have finished round 3 with 18 stitches and round 4 says : 1dc, 2dc in next st, (2dc, 2dc in next st) five times, 1 DC [24 sts].

I understand that in stitch 1 I do 1 double crochet and then the next stitch is 2 DC but not sure what the brackets mean or which part I do 5 times because no matter how I figure it I end up with more than 24 stitches.

^ What she said.  Here is a link to a page with a list of elements of crochet pattern 'speak' (including how to deal with parentheses and brackets, scroll down a bit) ; also see the a menu on the right side of all sorts of other good handy info. https://www.craftyarncouncil.com/standards/how-to-read-crochet-pattern
