Understanding Crochet Pattern Instructions?

I am crocheting a Christmas elf hat, the instruction read Rd 6: Ch2, 1 hdc in the same space as ch2, (hdc in next 5 stitches, 2 hdc in next st) x3 hdc in last stitch =24


Continue in same pattern increasing the number of HDC by 3 in each successive row thru row 11 ending with 39 stitches. My question is the increase, is it an increase stitch, or just adding 3 extra stitches in the row?

Thank you for your help.

Your pattern is poorly written. I feel bad.

If I am counting correctly when you follow the instructions you will have 24 stitches.

Row 7 you will do row six pattern and then increase by adding 3 HDCs in the last stitch so you will have 27 stitches; row 8, you will have 27 stitches then when you do 3 HDCs in the last stitch you will have 30; then row 9 in last stitch add 3 for 33; row 10 add 3 HDCs at end and you are at 36 then row 11 when you add your 3 it is 39.


Increase by doing all 3 in the last stitch.

Good luck! Post back when you have it done!
