I love this tote I'm trying to make it but I'm little confused about this row Row 19- 43 : Sc in same as SS,and Sc around ch 1.End of CB and attach CA.
am I to change off each row between the two? Also the handles part where it looks like to goes from the bottom to the top did you just sew that on?

I like the photo, but there is no way this is the complete pattern. My bag keeps getting wider. I dont see how bag holds its shape. Bummer.
