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. Link of the pattern is below!
