Pattern Help?
I'm fairly new to crochet, and I can't really understand this part of the pattern! It's too make a muzzle for an amigurumi hippo!

MUZZLE
Working in rounds
R1 - ch7, sc in 2nd chain from hook, 6sc, ch2, 6sc, ch2, mm
R2 - *sc5, 2sc in next 3 stitches, repeat from * mm
...

So after I chain seven, I go backwards and single crochet one, then do i single crochet six times into six different chains, or into one chain?
How many little slot things should I end up with going into the second row, and do I join them up since it says working in rounds. SO CONFUSED >_<

thanks for the help in advanced!

you are working in the round , meaning it will be done as a circle not a flat piece.

I would have to see more of the pattern and the set up row to be able to tell you exactly how to work the pattern

Round 1:
you are going to ch 7, sc in the 2nd one from the hook and work 6 sc across the chain, chain 2 work (this will turn the corner) into the other side of the foundation chain single crochet 6 chain 2 ( again turning hte corner) and move your marker.

Round 2: work 5 sc across the row 2 sc in each of hte next 3 stitches (this is your increase) adn repeat to the marker.

Hop this helps. (I worked up a muzzle really quick to figure this out as I was stumped)

Yes it is in the Round, but Oval is Closer to the Shape.
Sarah, you work both sides of the chain. I imagine this would be similar to knitting a sock starting with the toe. It is in the round but it does not lay flat.

I added some bold to KM's previous post. Does that help make it clearer?

thank you very much! That's where I was getting stuck, I didn't realise you had to go over both sides of the chain. Thanks so much for your help :-)

Christine (KnittinMitchie) should get all the credit. She gave the correct answer before I even spotted the question.
