Understanding Crochet Pattern
Hey guys--
It's been awhile since I last logged in, let alone posted here!
I signed up for Lion Brand yarn newsletters, and received one with child-easy patterns and stuff (because, you know, at age 19 I'm still a child ) and saw a beanie I'd love to crochet. I haven't done much crocheting, and thought it would be a good beginners project. I wound up starting and restarting 5-6 times as I started understanding what each step really wanted, but now I'm stuck, and can't seem to figure it out on my own.

Laugh if you want, but yes, I'm asking for help on a child-easy pattern

The link is here:

Instructions from the link that I'm having difficulties with are:
Rnd 3: 1 single crochet in next single crochet, 2 single crochet in next single crochet; repeat to marker - 18 stitches

I thought I understood- 1 single crochet and then in the next "loop" 2 single crochets.

Then for the next step:

Rnd 4: 1 single crochet in each of next 2 single crochet, 2 single crochet in next single crochet; repeat to marker - 24 stitches.

So... do I do 1 single crochet after 2 "loops," and then 2 single crochet in the "loop" after the 1 single crochet?

Because that's what I did. But THEN:

Rnd 5: 1 single crochet in each of next 3 single crochet, 2 single crochet in next single crochet; to marker - 30 stitches.

Which totally baffled me, and made me think I was doing something wrong. 1 single crochet every 3 "loops?" Made no sense...

Can someone please explain?
