Yes. When you chain that big long chain you have to "turn and create your first double crochet of that very first pattern row. (You always count the 2 chains at the end of a row for a double and 3 chains for a treble.) So having said that, the very first row would actually have at the end a 2Chain and 8 double crochets before skipping the next 2 of your foundation row. Then continue in batches of 9.
When you get to the very end of the row... and you have done 9 double crochets, (you are in the very last chain of the original chain if you counted right!) chain 2 and turn to start the next row. (This 2chain creates the first Double crochet of the next row) and so on.
Did I get that right DQ?
