What you have after the first row is groups of 2 v-stitches across with 1 on either end. So the "Ch 4, dc in next ch 1 sp" makes the singel v-st on the end of the row. Then the "skip next ch 1 space" sets you up for the 2 v-st group in the middle 2 dc of the previous row. The "ch 1 sp is the ch 1 between the dc that creates the v-st. Hope that helps.

I need help with the second row. What does it mean after DC in next ch----1sp is this skip one if so the next is also skip one and what is meant by ch 1 space. I have just started crocheting and I don't understand. If you can help I would like to make it for our great grand daughter. Thank you
