  1. I’m not new at crocheting; however I miffed by the following instructions:
    “Round 2: Ch 5, dc in first tr, (ch 1, tr) 10 times, ch 4, sl st in top of tr, (ch 1, tr) 9 times, ch 1, dc, ch 5,”

    “… dc in first tr, (ch 1, tr) 10 times…” – unclear – please explain in more detail. Thank you.
