sl st into first dc of round and ch 2, FPDC into the post under the ch 2 you just did, then dc into next stitch, then FPDC onto next post, DC into next stitch sl st in between the FPDC ignoring the first chain two as if it wasn’t there.
ch 2 and FPDC onto next post, DC into next stitch, Repeat this pattern. When you get to the end of the round, and sl stitch into the top of the ch 2.
ch 2, FPDC into the post under the ch 2 you just did, then dc into next stitch, then FPDC onto next post, DC into next stitch sl st in between the FPDC ignoring the first chain two as if it wasn’t there. In other words, you will ch 2 whan starting a round, but you will never end your round using the beginning ch 2, but instead sl st using the post of the FPDC.
