I know this is a knitting community but as knitting communities are all I belong to I didn't know where else to turn. :) I'm making a scarf that requires me to crochet a 53" chain stitch. It doesn't look too hard for me to try to do, even as someone who doesn't crochet, but I don't entirely understand the pattern. I was hoping someone here might be able to decipher it for me or perhaps point me toward a crochet help community. Here's the pattern:
"With crochet hook, make chain about 53 in long.
Slip st in 2nd chain from hook and in each chain across.
What does the middle part mean? Do I make a 53" chain and then worry about that or is that something I'm doing every second chain? I'm just not sure what to make of it. I appreciate any help! This is the last bit of the scarf and I can't wait to finish it. Thank you in advance and I hope it's alright that I asked this here, the rest of the pattern involved knitting if that helped any. :)
