crochet popcorn stitch
Hi, Need help with instructions of a filet crochet pattern from 1947. This is the first row: dc 8th chain from hook, ch 2.......etc (pc st made), ch 1, now here's where I'm confused - DC IN NEXT DC (PC BL MADE); DC IN NEXT 12 CH (4 BLS MADE), 1 PC BL, MAKE 5 SPS, 1 PC BL, 5 BLS ...........
How/ where do I DC IN NEXT DC right after a popcorn stitch when I'm working on the 1st row which is chain stitches - is it some where in the popcorn stitch? And 12 dc makes up 4 blocks BLS; are blocks consisting of 3 dc each so I'd do 15 dc for 5 blocks? I'd consider myself an intermediate but this has me stumped, plus it's my first filet crochet.
