  1. After tearing out round 11 four times I have discovered that the terminology is not correct for this tote. Instead of dc2tog, it should be 2 dc in the same ch 1 space and instead of dc3tog on round 12, it should be 3 dc in the same ch 1 space.

      1. Hi. I like this pattern but can you make rounds 11 and 12 more clear? Can we start with the next step right after round 10? Also, considering Ms. Lisa’s reply, do I still make the dc2tog and dc3tog? Thanks.

      2. I have made some edits to the pattern. I hope they make the pattern a little easier to follow. Let me know if there is anything else I could do to improve this pattern. Sorry for the confusion.

        Sincerely,
        Vicky
