Thank you for the help. Unfortunately I do not have a full picture of the pattern. The pattern is a Christmas tree skirt that my daughter found on the yarn wrapper.
Yes, the rows 4 and 5 are confusing. I'll try to decipher some more. Otherwise, I may just try to wing it and who knows I may create my own unique pattern.
I wasn't sure whether I would like knitting or crocheting. So, I'm trying both. The knitting I'm finding right now a little tougher. I can't seem to pick up dropped stitches. I find myself unraveling a lot.
