In answer to "What does skip 3 +" mean: I believe the + is used as a marker, such as *. It would have been better to use ** instead of +. If you read Rnd 3: "rep from * once, end rep at +". Very confusing using the + sign as a marker.

I'm also having difficulty with this pattern. I've started over 3 times and the stitches are not coming out evenly for the next row. What does skip 3+ mean?

I am really having a challenge with this pattern "Using C, ch44 (60, 76) sts; being careful not to twist chain, join with a slip st to form a ring. Rnd 1: Ch 4(counts as dc, ch1), dc in first st..... Does this mean the same st that the slip st is in? This same question comes up in every round. Thank you
