Is there a guide somewhere that shows what the stitch abbreviations mean and how to make the stitch? how do you do a slip stitch (sts) while you are making a chain? as this pattern calls for in the first row?

Would anyone know how I could figure out the multiple of this pattern? I'd like to make it a bit larger. If not I'll just make lots of extra chains and untie and undo the extras. Either way, it's a very nice pattern.
