Peace Granny Square - Reverse V-Stitch deciphered

I've had several people contact me saying they were having trouble understanding the Reverse V-Stitch instructions. I thought it best to post my reply here and put a link in the pattern.
Thanks so much for contacting me. In hindsight, Reverse V-stitch may have been a poor choice of name – Upside-down V-stitch is more accurate. Perhaps if I write that round out “longhand” it will be a little clearer...  
Rnd 7) With B: sc in beginning ch3 of the previous round, ch 2, (skip next stitch, sc in next stitch, ch 2) x 3, *skip next stitch, #yarn over, insert hook in stitch, yarn over, pull through stitch, yarn over, pull through two loops on hook (2 loops will remain on hook), yarn over, skip next stitch, insert hook in stitch, yarn over, pull through stitch, yarn over, pull through two loops on hook, yarn over, pull through 3 loops on hook (Reverse V-stitch complete)#, ch 2, (dc in same stitch as last dc, ch 2) x 2, repeat between #s starting in same stitch as last dc, (ch 2, skip next stitch, sc in next stitch) x 6, ch 2, repeat from * around, join with slip stitch to beginning sc. = 40 ch2 spaces
I hope this helps. If it's still as clear as mud please don't hesitate to contact me. Happy hooking!

    Hi Tina! Sorry to confuse - this is a difficult one to "see" until it clicks. :P

    So you've just completed you first Reverse V-stitch...

    Then ch 2, (dc in same stitch as last dc, ch 2) x 2... in other words, ch 2, dc in the same stitch as the 2nd leg of your Reversed V-stitch (RVS), ch 2, dc again in the same stitch (you now have 3 dc in that stitch), and ch 2. That's the end of that bit...

    Then, working in that same stitch yet again, start your 2nd RVS. You'll end up with 4 dc all in that same "corner" stitch: the 2nd leg of the 1st RVS, the 2 dc and the 1st leg of the 2nd RVS.

    If you click on the granny square picture in the original pattern post - http://sofar-sogood.blogspot.co.uk/2008/06/peace-granny.html - you'll get a slightly bigger image and you should be able to see how it "works".

    If it's still clear as mud :) email me - sofar_sogood at btinternet dot com - and I'll send you some step-by-step images.
