CROCHET TIP 1:
Because we cut the yarn and change the color on every round, work first dc on every round as follows: Make 2 YO on hook, insert hook in last st from previous round, make 1 YO and pull through, make 1 YO and pull through 2 sts, make yet 1 more YO and pull through the last 2 sts.

CROCHET TIP 2:
Fasten the yarn end after every color change by letting the strand from previous row be worked into the piece a bit before cutting it off and fastening it (work with the new color around the previous color).

SC IN A CIRCLE (applies to shoulder strap):
After last sc on 1st round, work 1 sc in next sc (= 1st sc from beg of 1st round), then work in the round with 1 sc in every sc.
