Help with a pattern
OK I'm trying to continue a tradition started by my mother who passed away in 2009. She would either knit or crochet afghans for special folks she thought deserved them. These afghans were always either Angels Everywhere or Captive Hearts from Shady Lane. I'm doing the Captive Hearts Afghan and am having a little trouble trying to figure out how to complete a row.

The first 3 rows are all single crochet and I have those done. Its the 4th row I'm having trouble with. The pattern reads:
Join CC with sc in first st (I get this part). The trouble comes here, dc in fl of next 2 rows below,. Is there a video somewhere that shows how to do this? There are a couple pictures on the pattern showing what to do but I can't seem to get my brain wrapped around the concept.

This is the first pattern of this type I've tried to do but so far I think I like it. Its really easy to figure out what row your on since each row is cut and finished off. All you have to do is count the fringe ends. Both the Angels and the Hearts patterns are made in a similar fashion so once I get this part figured out the rest should be a breeze. Thanks in advance for any help you can give.
