I admit I'm a bit new to crocheting, but the internet has been able to help me a lot! However, this set of stitches has me totally stumped and nothing I do seems to be right. Help if you can!

Maybe you could post the line of directions, so that we could see the wording.

R3: (inc, sc) 8 times                                         24 sts

R4-11: sc in each st around                           24 sts

R12: (dec, sc over the next 4 sts) 4 times    20 sts

It looks like you do a sc decrease (that would use two st from previous round), then sc in each of the next 4 st. Do this four times and the 24 st from the previous round become 20 stitches in this round.

That's what my mother assumed. The wording just seemed slightly strange. Thank you!
