My question is: to chain 7 do I use the stitch already on the crochet hook and chain 7 brand new stitches with the loose (working) yarn, or do I slip the next seven stiches onto the crochet hook (one at a time) and use those to chain? i.e. slip the next knitted stich onto the crochet hook, chain, slip the next knitted stitch onto the crochet hook, chain for 7 times?
You're working a dec on those 3 sts. Yarn over and pull the yarn through all 3 at once. Then, you have one loop on the hook. At that point you yarn over and pull the loop through 7 times with the working yarn. The loop you start out with won't count in the 7. Move the next 3 knit sts to the hook and repeat the process.

I can see it in my head. I hope this helps. If not, I'm sure someone else can say it better. I also hope I understand what you're asking.
