Check one of the granny square videos on youtube. http://www.youtube.com/results?searc...ny+square&sm=3. Any of them should show you what you need. My internet is slower than slow and it takes a long time for videos to load so I'll let you check them out.

After you do the part inside the * * you then finish the round with dc. When you complete the round, join with a sl st as before, then start a new round following the same instructions. HTH

If you're out of stitches, then yes, for this round you can disregard it, sl st to join and start the next round. As written it will apply to all rounds that follow and you dc in any sts left after the repeat. I'd love to see your square if you can post a photo.

At the beginning of the round, you're chaining 3. Then you go around. When you get to the end of the round, you will slip stitch to join. They want you to place the slip stitch in the proper place. If you join in the chain, it will look funny. Look at the stitches. The chain will be vertical. Count up three stitches and place your hook into the fourth. It will be sitting at the top of the work and will be horizontal. You'll know it's the proper stitch because it will have two loops for you to slide your hook under. This is where you should join. After you join, you chain 3 again. This brings your work up to the proper height so you can continue on the next round. I hope this makes sense to you.
