I love this tunic. I have begun crocheting one of the small motifs, but am stumped.  

Row 3: where it says "ch 10 sc in 2nd ch from hook" - I get this.....but  "sc in next 2ch, hdc in next 3ch, dc in next 3dc.....are theses stitches being crocheted in the stitches of the 10 chains"?  If so, it appears to NOT create a loop, but more of a line of stitches not connected to the row 2 of the flower.  Obviously, I'm doing something wrong,

Can you give me some advice please?
