Ok, Merryknitter, check my website
tomorrow morning and you should see your own personal tutorial on how to work this instruction!
I only had the directions that you provided, so I don't know what the instructions are for the second and subsequent rows, but I sure like how the first row comes out. What a soft wave pattern that is. I could see that done in sport weight pastels for a baby blanket, or in worsted or bulky weight manly man colors for a full size afghan. I would love to know if this pattern is available on the internet somewhere.
Anyway, check out the video Wednesday morning after 7:00 eastern time and see if it helps you understand the directions. It will also be listed in the Crochet and Library of Video Tutorials links on my sidebar for future reference.
