Just started Large Market Bag here.
I'm attempting to make it smaller so need to fig the repeat. Per this section:
Do not turn, make 12 loose slip stitches (sl st) down the side.
Round 1: Work sc in each of the 12 sl st and all the way around the rectangular bottom. (174 sc)
Round 2-6: Sc
Round 7: (2 dc, ch1, skip 2 stitches)around, ending in dc in last stitch
(sl st in top of beg dc) (174 stitches)[/B]
Looking at the pic of the bag the '2 dc' don't appear to be worked in diff scs so are they worked in one sc so they slightly flare \/, the chain is over the 'skip 2'? That would mean the '2 dc, ch1, skip 2 stitches' is worked over 3 sts ....so 3 st + ? Or if the 2 dc are worked in sep scs, it'd be worked over 4 sts + ? I've tried dividing 3+1, 4+1, etc (the '1' for the final dc in the round per the patt) into the 174 and not coming up with numbers that make sense but I did this late at night.
Any help appreciated. I'm sure the answer is obvious.
