I'm working on this Shoulder bag from Lionbrand (http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/cchs-bag.html?noImages=
) and I'm having trouble understanding this part of the instructions:
FLAP: Place a marker on 11th st from end of rnd, cont counting 23 more sts from marker and place a second marker. Return to work. Ch2, turn.
Row 1: : Work in hdc over next 21 sts, Ch2 turn.
Rows 2, 4 & 6: Work in hdc over 21 sts inserting hook under all loops of each hdc
. Ch 2, turn.
Rows 3 & 5 : Hdc in each of the 21 hdc. Ch 2, turn.
Rows 7, 9 & 11: Dec 1 hdc, hdc in each st to last 2 hdc, dec 1 hdc. Ch 2, turn.
Rows 8, 10 & 12: Dec 1 hdc, hdc in each st to last 2 hdc inserting hook under all loops of each hdc
, dec 1 hdc (9 sts rem). Fasten off.
What exactly does "under all loops" mean? How is that different than making a normal hdc? Which loops are "all the loops"? If the alternate rows said to stitch in the back or front loop only, then these instructions would suggest that I return to stitching normally for these rows, but as it is I don't understand what they mean by all loops. I'm guessing it means to do something different than a normal hdc, but I'm not sure what?
If anyone can explain this, it would be greatly appreciated
