I have a question about the ever-popular Fat Bottom Bag.  I am working on the other side of the bag now, where you first start working the hhdc2tog to decrease and I'm confused.  I'm not confused about the stitch, I'm confused about where to place my stitch markers.  In the pattern it says to place stitch markers in each hhdc2tog and even though it's technically one stitch, you work it through two stitches in a row.  So, would I place the stitch marker in the first stitch I went through to work the hhdc2tog or both?  Also, it says to hhdc2tog "in the next two stitches".  Would that count as one hhdc2tog or would you need to hhdc2tog twice, going through four stitches in succession?

Hey, you look oddly familiar LOL  I saw the SN name and thought, "Oh, how cool.  Someone with the same nickname as my sister".   Cheesy

Oh, and I figured it out.  I have finished the body of the bag, minus the handle flaps because I need to finish the liner before I gather it.

This is exactly the problem I'm having! Can you tell me what the answer was?

On the first side of the bag you have two stitches because you're doing an increase and place the markers accordingly. On the second side of the bag you only have one stitch because you're doing a decrease, so put the marker in the hhdc decrease stitch itself.

Thanks! I was having all sorts of issues because my decrease rows weren't turning out evenly. I would do the hhdc, the decrease, five hhdc and another decrease and then the number of hhdc left wouldn't match the first hhdc section. Am I making sense?
Anyway, I ripped it back and started over and all is well. I hope to post photos soon!
