Crochet Help!! **EDIT** I think I got it!!! :) Pic added
I am trying a new type of blanket for another SIL that is expecting a baby boy. I found this "EASY" pattern, and I am lost already!
Here is the pattern: http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/L10273.html#
I haven't gotten very far. I've done the "round" and I've done the 2dc in ring, ch 1, then 3dc in ring, ch 1 three times. I did the slip stitch. And that's where I am. Then it says 12dc and 4 ch - 1 sps. I don't know what this means!!!! I'm totally stuck. I'm obviously still a novice, can someone talk me off the ledge?!?!
EDIT: OK, I had never done a granny square before!!!! It was a little confusing but with a little help from about.com (I find their tutorials to be REALLY easy to follow), I was able to pick it up.
Here is what I've done so far (the messy part in the middle is the "tails" showing through from behind that I haven't taken care of yet), and the four colors I'm using - baby blue, brown, green, and a varieagated of blue, green & white. I really like how it's coming along! It's a nice way to make a blanket :)
