Round 17-54 SC in each stitch, NO INCREASES

Round 55: Chain 4, *Skip one stitch, DC in next stitch, Chain one* around. Slip stitch in the 3rd chain of beginning chain 4. Chain 1.

Round 56 -57: SC in each stitch around. At the end of round slip stitch and fasten off.

CORD: Holding two strands together, make a chain long enough to go through round 55 and for a strap that is comfortable to you.(Mine is about 36″ long)

HINT: Melt the end of your nylon cord so it doesn’t fray. I also glued the ends of the double strands together (on the inside of the piece) because I was afraid that the knots wouldn’t hold. Nylon cord can be rascally! I also made a rectangle (using a single cord) a little larger than my cell phone and sewed it to the inside of the bag. It’s turned out nice.
