Pattern Notes
• Ch1 and Ch2 do not equal stitches.
• Ch3 equals a stitch.
• For bag bottom, work in continuous rounds unless otherwise indicated. Use a stitch marker to mark the beginning of the round and keep round count.
• Keep close attention to Round 11 as instructions change a bit.
• You will get instructions on when to switch colors, so keep close attention to that instruction.

You can make your bag longer or shorter by repeating rows 15 - 18 however many times you want. This patterns calls for a repeat of rows 15 - 18, four more times to achieve the length stated.
