Row 13: Ch2(counts as 1st dc),1dc in each of the next 6 dc,2dccl,1 dc in each of next 10 dc,2 dccl, 1 dc in each of next 14 dc, 2 dccl, 1 dc in each of 10 dc, 2 dccl, 1 dc in each of next 14 dc, 2 dccl, 1 dc in each of next 10 dc, 2 dccl, 1 dc in each of next 7 dc,turn. I came up with 78 stitches. Row 14 came out perfect. I don't see why dccl just can't be written as 1 dc decrease. But I love the pattern. Hope this helps.
I had exactly the same problem--way too many stitches. So I turned an excel spread sheet into a grid and entered each stitch in a cell. It turns out the pattern directions are correct...just written in a way that is confusing. By the way, 3 dc into next 3 st means 1 dc into each of the next 3 sts. Hope this helps.
