Yarn over, pull through (3 loops on hook), yarn over, pull through 2 loops (2 loops on hook), yarn over, pull through 2 loops (1 loop remains on hook).
Row 1: DC in 4th CH from the hook (the 3 skipped CH counts as the 1st DC), DC in each CH to the end of row. Turn. (20 sts including 1st CH)
Row 2 – 46: CH3 (counts as the 1st DC), FPDC around each DC, DC in the top of turning CH. Turn.
First Handle: CH 20, skip 19 STS, SL ST in last ST, turn. SC in each CH to the end of row, SL ST in last ST. Fasten off.
