You will now be working around your chain forming it in the shape of a ‘bag’. It is crucial to follow
the instructions carefully so as to have the increases in the right places otherwise the body will be crooked.
It is important to make sure that the decreases start from the sc before the decrease on the previous round. This way you will be sure it is NOT staggered.
Round 1: ch 28
Round 2: 3 sc in 2. ch from the hook, 25 sc, 3 sc in next st, 25 sc (57)
