I am making this harness for my poor cat who probably won't wear it but whatever. I'm having trouble following this:
To join the two loops, hold them together (one on top of the other) with the tops of the stitches on the outside edge, not inside. Working on outside edge, insert hook through both pieces, ch 2. 5 hdc in next 5 st (again through both pieces), turn.
Okay so here is a MS Paint doodle of what I have:
And this is what I think I should hold them like:
But then it's all Ch 2, 5 hdc in next 5 st. What next 5 stitches?
Any help would be much appreciated.
