Alex, here are the instructions:

Ch 213 loosely

ROW 1: Dc in fith ch from hook, * + ch 1, (skip next ch, dc in next ch, ch 1) twice, [YO, skip next ch, insert hook in next ch, YO and pull up a loop YO and dwar thriugh 2 loops on hook, YO, skip next 3 chs, insert hook in next ch, YO and pull up a loop, YO and draw through 2 loops on hook, YO and draw through all 3 loops on hook {counts as ine dc}], ch 1, (skip next ch, dc in next ch, ch 1) twice, skip next ch +, (dc, ch 3, dc) in next ch; repeat from * 11 times more, then repeat from + to + once, (dc, ch 1, dc) in last ch: 92 dc and 92 sps

ROW 2: (Right side): Ch 4 (counts are first dc plus ch 1, now and throughout), turn: dc in same st, ch 1, (dc in next dc, ch 1) twice, decrease, ch 1, (dc in next dc, ch 1) twice, * (dc, ch 3, dc) in next ch-3 sp, ch 1, (dc in next dc, ch 1) twice, decrease, ch 1, (dc in next dc, ch 1) twice: repeat from * across to last sp, skip next ch, (dc, ch 1, dc) in next ch changing to green in last dc (fig. 8, page 23): 93 dc and 92 sps.

ROW 3: Ch 4, turn: dc in same st, ch 1, (dc in next dc, ch 1) twice, decrease, ch 1, (dc in next dc, ch 1) twice, * (dc, ch 3, dc) in next ch-3 sp, ch 1, (dc in next dc, ch 1) twice, decrease, ch 1, (dc in next dc, ch 1) twice: repeat from * across to last dc, (dc, ch 1, dc) in last dc.

row 4 is almost a repeat... from there i repeat rows 3 and 4 to the end

so if you can make sense of this please help

turn after turning chain

Let's see if anyone else agrees with me.

I've seen this peculiarity a couple of times in the last couple of days. Normally the instructions say that you are to make the turning chain at the end of the row.
(Something like "ch 4. Turn.") It is understood that 2 chains serves as the first hdc in a row that contains hdc., 3 chains serves as the first dc in a row that contains dc, 3 chain for tr, and so on. If there are extra chains in the turning chain, it usually means that you are substituting the proper chains for the stitch and extra chains for a chain space (see the beginning of your Row 2 instructions). If you put the instructions to chain and turn at the end of the previous rows and continue with the directions the whole thing makes more sense to me. It seems you'll have a little loop at the beginning and end of the row.

As for the directions "{counts as the dc}", is dc supposed to mean "decrease" as it would seem?

if I get a chance I'll do a little swatch and see what happens. Any pictures of this on-line anywhere?

I'm sorry it's taken me so long to get back to you. The "andy" faction has caused me to miss some recent posts. Do us all a favor and bombard the CYCA office with protests. Most of old timers have and it seems to have done no good whatsoever. (See Mother Hen's topic above.)
