I want to make this pattern of a newborn bowl/cocoon but it doesn't say to link the chain in the first round it says turn but then in the 2nd round it says to join with sl stitch so am I joining the chain to make a ring? Or am I going back and forth in a blanket pattern?

Very confusing! Mainly because they used the word "round". Looks to me like you're going back and forth, like a blanket, as you said, and you sew the ends together at the end. It even says that the corners will be hidden once the baby's inside, which sounds to me, again, like it's a big rectangle,  not a circle. They should have used the word "row", as they did at one point. Some people don't know how to write patterns, unfortunately. :( I hope i helped!

Learning different stitching style is not easy, but if you are really interested in it you can easily learn it. There are many styles to make but for beginner it was not an easy task. You can see youtube videos to learn this stitches.

This pattern is worked in the round - you should join your first and last chains in the starting row with a slip stitch so that the rest of the rows are worked in a round. Kinda confusing but pretty simple once you get the hang of it :-)
