Fashions in Quick Crochet

Fashions in Quick Crochet, 1953

Front and back covers are super awesome (above and below images)! 
I love the hat and bag style above and really wish I could make them!  But I don't get: 1st rnd: 3 sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in each ch across, 3 sc in last chain.....

I want that pink top!  Only not in pink....

The "centerfold" has some really neat ideas for making crochet trim for adding to existing garments:

I love the 'Ball Fringe Braid" seen on the blue circle skirt.  Very vintage "south of the border" style.  I would use any of these trims today, if I could just understand and decipher the code to make them.
