Hi! I am working on a doggie sweater and have run into an issue understanding my pattern and they say the skill level is easy! Ha!...ok here's the question. I am working on the leg opening and it says Joining row: (WS) Pat across 9 sts. Ch 7 pat across 55 sts ch 7 pat to end of row. now before this I did Work 2 1/2 ins [6 cm] ending wth RS row.

 

is this making sense? Well, it is a bernat pattern called "Super Value Crochet Dog Coat and I am doing it in an extra large for my boxer. I've done pretty well up until this point now I am lost. 

Any takers in wanting to help me? :))))

Thanks Danielle

Your instructions say:

Joining row: (WS) Pat across 9 sts. Ch 7 pat across 55 sts ch 7 pat to end of row. now before this I did Work 2 1/2 ins [6 cm] ending wth RS row.

Since you finished with a RS (right side) row, you would then

Turn. On WS (wrong side), work your pattern stitch (the one you were using for the previous rows) for 9 stitches; chain 7 (this will be the opening for the first leg); work pattern stitch for the next 55 stitches; chain 7 (this will be the opening for the 2nd leg); work pattern stitch to end of row. 

Hope this helps.

Remember you might need to chain more than 7 if you are making the coat in a larger size!
