I'm confused about step 9 as well. A more detailed explanation would be great, thanks.

You just crochet 2 stitches together 10 times throughout the row. Then after the last stitch you join with a slip stitch and then chain 1 to get to the next row.

Hope that helps.

I love this pattern and was wondering if I could sell completed items online with your permission. And of course give you credit for the pattern.
