    Pattern is written for two colors, but does not state where to do color changes (assuming after base and after body).

    At the end of row 1 of the body, it says “sc in last sc, turn” and then “join with sl st to first sc, sl st to ch-2 sp.” I’m assuming I ignore the instruction to sc in last sc and turn?

    Also, beginning of row 2 repeats instruction to join with sl st to first sc, sl st to ch-2 sp.

    I was really confused until I typed it out here. I’m going to ignore a couple lines of instruction, I think. Thank you! Cute pattern.

        I’ll post a photo! I finished one and I’m working on a second. My crochet group is starting a CAL on it tomorrow!

          Allison, I have the same questions as you …. also, is the base supposed to lay flat or curl? Does it maintain 84 stitches through the entire base and body? And I assume there is no turning in the body of the bag, this is worked in the round, correct?
          You never posted a picture … I would love to see yours …

          Interesting questions. Has this pattern been updated or have the questions been answered elsewhere?

          Based on the picture, and the instructions, it seems that:
          1) The base does maintain 84 stitches throughout and does not lay flat;
          2) The pattern does call for the work to be turned on the body rounds, but could be worked in the round. The turning each round seems like a purely stylistic choice.

          Glad to have found this pattern and will be trying it soon!
