No. Do not crochet any kind of stitch into it. Just skip the 2 chains you see on the previous row.

(count as first dc...) means that your turning chain, which is the chain 3, will count as the first double crochet of the row, for that row and for every row where it is worked throughout the pattern.

'working in back loops only' means that you pick up only the back loop of the stitch you are working into. For a demonstration of that technique, you can view my video on single crochet which you will find HERE (http://www.hookedonneedles.com/2008/09/learn-to-crochet-single-crochet-video.html). Most of the video is how to work the single crochet stitch, but at about the 4 minute mark I show how to work into the front loop and then how to work into the back loop. Of course, you would be doing double crochet stitches on your piece, but it's the same concept that is being shown for picking up the front or back loop.

There are lots of other videos on my website that you might find helpful for crochet. Just check my sidebar under Crocheting or Library of video tutorials.

I hope this is helpful.

REALLY NEED HELP how do i change colors in slip st

same way you change colors using any other stitch in crochet...work the stitch until you are ready to draw the yarn through for the last time. Drop the old color, pick up the new color and use that to finish the stitch and continue working with the new color.

In the case of a slip stitch, you would insert your hook, draw up a loop with the new color and draw it through the stitch and the loop on the hook.

Hope this helps.

HERE (http://www.hookedonneedles.com/2009/03/learn-to-crochet-changing-colors-on.html) is a video showing how to change colors on a granny square, but the concept would be the same no matter what stitch you are working.

what do they mean repeat row 2 twice and at the end of row 7 finish off

Well, it means just what it says. Repeat row 2 two times. After you have finished row 7, cut your yarn and pull the end through the loop and tighten it so it won't unravel.

Hi!
And do you have a picture or scheme of the pattern? You mean every round with another color?
You can do a mint color twice (instead one of the blues, for example), if all the colors are gentle, not intensive, than it will look good, but if they are very bright, even gaudy, than it's better to use only 2-3 colors, ex. blue, mint, white - if the afgan is for a boy, and pink, white, blue (or mint) if it is for a girl.
