Hi! I'm working on a pattern for earrings that says:
"Rnd 3: Ch 1, *sc into next ch-2 sp, ch 1, [5 dc, 3-picot, 5 dc] in ch-5 sp, ch 1, sc in next ch-2 space, ch 4. Repeat from * three more times, then ch 1, join with a sl st to the beginning ch-1."
I don't understand the [5dc, 3-picot,5dc] piece.
Does it mean: do *3* picots (3 separate stitches connected) in the same space as the 5dc?
Does it mean: do *1* 3picot (so one stitch)?
Does it mean something else completely?
Both ways look weird when done. But that may be because a picot is new to me anyway! Feel free to tell me if there is a trick or a tip for the picot. 😉 Any thoughts?
Thanks so much,
