Hold 2 squares with wrong sides tog. Sc through the outer loops of all corresponding stitches except the ch sps. When you come to a ch sp, work into the actual ch sp... not through the outer loops of both chains.

Do not fasten off.

Repeat this joining method widthwise for each section. As you come to the point where the two joins intersect, work over the intersection and continue as before.

Fold the piece so there are 4 squares on the front and 4 squares on the back.
The fold becomes the bottom of the bag.

Join same yarn used in joining squares with a sc in the corresponding corner ch sps on the end opposite the fold. Join cor sts down that side.
