Pattern Notes

  • Ch1 does not equal a stitch.
  • The first stitch of each round will be placed in the same stitch as the chain 1 stitch. The pattern will assume that you know to place the first stitch in the same stitch.
  • Ch2 does not equal a stitch.
  • When placing the FPdc, you will place it around the post of the dc you made 2 rounds below. Essentially skipping the single crochet round.
  • For the Body of the Bag section, it
    begins new round count, each ending
    count will be 118 sts
