Cupcake Hat with a Cherry – Natalija Puschkina

I have purchased a crochet pattern for a cupake hat (Cupcake Hat with a Cherry – Natalija Puschkina) and have some questions that I would be most appreciative if someone could assist. Unfortunately, Natalija is not responding so I have taken to the forum.

The pattern is in US terminology and comes in three sizes.

When making pink part of cake, row 10 cites as follows:

  1. Row: 1 ch, 8 sc tbl, 2 sc tbl in next ch - 5 time repeat (=60 sc tbl). Sl st in top of beginning ch-1
    10 a., 10 b., 10 c. Row (for size 2): in the same manner crochet
    10 d., 10 e., 10 f. Row (for size 3): in the same manner crochet

Do I work row 10 only once for the first size and, if making size 2, do I work row 10 and then work row 10 a further three times? For size 3, do I work row 10 and then work row 10 a further six times (so, row 10 is worked seven times in total)?

The cherry stick instruction is thus:

‘With brown: 10 ch crochet, 1 sl st in all sc’

What does ‘1 sl st in all sc’ mean. If I have 10 ch, where does the sc come from?

I don’t crochet, but hopefully someone can help if you still need it!
