What does skip chain space mean in crochet?

What does skip next dc mean?

That means you will work the [sk next dc, shell in next dc] 4 times before going on to work the ch 1, dc in next 4 dc. Parentheses are sometimes used in the same way. Parentheses are used to indicate a group of stitches that are to be worked together into a stitch, such as: in next dc work (2 dc, ch 3, 2 dc).

THIS IS FUN:  What is knitted or crocheted?
