Yes, if you are instructed to chain 1 and do not turn... you will begin by working into the row ends... around the stitch at the end of each row.

So for this instruction:

"Ch 1, do not turn; working in end of rows, work
155sc evenly spaced across; working in free loops of
beginning ch 3 sc in first ch, work 99 sc evenly
spaced across to last ch, 3 sc in last ch; working in
end of rows, work 155 sc evenly spaced acrossed: 415
sc.

DO THIS:

Chain 1, do not turn
work around each stitch at the end of the row up that side, evenly spacing 155 single crochet stitches.

So, if you have 155 rows you would place one stitch in each row end.

If you have a more than 155 rows you need to adjust by skipping a row end randomly up that side in order to end up with 155 single crochet stitches.

If you have less than 155 rows you need to adjust by working two stitches into one row end randomly up that side in order to end up with 155 single crochet stitches.

Now working in the free loops (the unworked loops from your foundation chain)

-- work 3 single crochet stitches into the very first unworked loop.
-- Now work 99 single crochet stitches evenly across the remaining unworked loops (not counting the very last one)
Do this the same way you adjusted for the number of stitches along the side.
-- work 3 single crochet stitches into the last unworked loop.

Now working into the row ends again... work the same as the opposite side.

You should have 415 single crochet stitches on those three sides when finished.
155 for the first side
3 for first corner
99 along foundation chain
3 for second corner
155 for the second side
----
415 total stitches


Hope this helps.
