The CH1 SP in your pattern is the space formed on the previous row when you did Ch1 between the groups of Stitches.
A SP can be formed by any number of CHs.
Most patterns have a list of Abbreviations but now that people are just writing their own and publishing them on the Internet, they seem to forget that not all crocheters know these things.
Hope this helps.
SP = Space.
SK = Skip.
ST = Stitch.
CH = Chain.
SC = Single Crochet.
DC = Double Crochet.
TR = Treble.
HDC = Half Double Crochet.
TBL = Through Back Loop.
FPDC = Front Post DC.
BPDC = Back Post DC.
YO = Yarn Over.

And the pictures on nexstitch...Heaven!
Seriously, I am teaching myself to crochet because my nephews and neices are starting to have babies and man, this is HARD. I can DO lots of stitches but when it comes to putting them together from patterns? Oy! Patterns are like a foreign language. I am using 'Crocheting for Dummies' but I'm starting to feel like I don't even qualify for dummy LOL.
Anyway, thanks for these answers.
(I realize that this is an old topic and I'm rambling, but THANK YOU anyway.)
