Round 1: 1sc in second ch, 1sc in each ch across, 4sc in last ch; continue working 1sc in each ch on the other side, 3sc in last ch (82st)
R2: *1sc in next 39st, 2sc in next 2st* Repeat (86)
R3: 1sc in next 40st, 2sc in next 2st, 1sc in next 41st, 2sc in next 2st, 1sc in last st (90)

R5: 1sc in back loop in each st across, end with a sl st (94)
Notes: After R5 we work the body of the square bag in joined rounds ending with a slip stitch in first st. Starting chains after R6 do not count as a stitch. Work fpdc inserting the hook 2 rows below as indicated on the graph.
R6: 2ch, 1dc in each st across (94)

Fabric lining and straps
At last, attach the bag straps, optionally add a name tag and line the square bag with fabrics. This can be done with a sewing machine or by hand. Follow this step by step video showing how to add a simple fabric lining.
