If I am using a pattern and finish a row of single crochet, and the directions read "chain one, turn, dc in next sc" is the next sc the first one in the new row, or the second one?

Are you sure it's "chain one, turn, dc in next sc"? I only ask because I have never seen this instruction on any pattern that I have worked with. I have seen "chain one, turn, sc in next sc", which would indicate using the first sc in the row, and I have seen "chain 3, turn, skip first st, dc in next st".

Without seeing the pattern I can't say much more than this.

Richard.

I think that the next stitch is the first stitch you make after the ch 1, turn.

the chain one turn, dc in next sc is done on top of the last dc of the row before, so, the next dc would be done in the second sc.  i hope this makes sense.

I agree with Richard.   The instruction is confusing.  Is the next row made up of sc(s) or dc(s) according to the subsequent instructions?
