I'm sorry, I thought I could read patterns, but in row 2 "*sk next st, dc in next st, dc in skipped st; repeat from *" where it says "dc in skipped st" in the previous row (row 1), there is no "skipped st", there are 93 sc stitches. Unless there are really three rows -- first row is sc in chains, 2nd row is "dc and skip a stitch to end" (alternating dc and skip a stitch), then third row is as the row 2 describes. ??? Please explain?

Looks pretty; I teach disabled adults to crochet & am always looking for quick & easy patterns. Looking to try it myself first.
