Rnd 3) ch2, 2dc in first st, * dc in next st, 2dc in next st repeat from * around, sl st to join
Rnd 4) ch2, 2dc in first st, * dc in next 2 sts, 2dc in next st, repeat from * around, sl st to join
Rnd 5) ch2, 2dc in first st, * dc in next 3 sts, 2dc in next st, repeat from * around, sl st to join
Rnd 6) ch2, 2dc in first st, * dc in next 4sts, 2 dc in next st, repeat from * around, st st to back loop of first dc
Rnd 7) ch2, dc in back loop of first st in back loop of each st accross, sl st to join
Rnd 8) ch2, dc in first 4 sts, dc next 2sts together, *dc in next 4sts, dc next 2sts together, repeat from * around, sl st to join.
Rnd 9-12) ch2, dc in first st and in each st around, sl st to join fasten off.

Instead of starting with chains you might want to try magic circle. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WLuSVyKvoUg For me it's easier than multiple sts (and 11 is a lot) in a single chain. If you don't like that video, there are others and you can find written instructions if you google. That video shows it for sc but if you chain 3 after the first loop is pulled through you can then start your dc.

Where are you hung up? Do you need instuction on joining to top of first dc? http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=crochet+join+with+slip+stitch&oq=crochet+join&gs_l=youtube-reduced.1.2.0l4.386130.389676.0.394069.12.10.0.2.2 .0.288.1264.2-5.5.0...0.0...1ac.1.HTPGnLBou60

What are you making?

That's cute! I and others will be more than glad to help you all we can, but one step at a time is usually best. Assuming you want to know how to chain when you need something else would be less than helpful to you. So, specifics help.

Here's a beginning crochet video tutorial on how to crochet. The second link will tell you how to read patterns.

Ok. I've got to round 7. How do I do that?

Rnd 7) ch2, dc in back loop of first st in back loop of each st accross, sl st to join

If you skip up to about 5 min. on the video she shows crochet in back loop only. You'll get a ridge in front. I have to go back and find the video before this one, she shows something in it that I want to learn.

How do I do round 8?

Here's a video I did a while ago that shows how to the decrease for round 8, only the video shows decreasing from 3 to 1 instead of from 2 to one. The technique is the same, but you would just do it over 2 stitches instead of 3. Hope this helps!
