V-Stitch Grocery/Produce Bag Crochet Pattern

I wanted a big bag for shopping
 that was pretty and sturdy.
So I designed one..
It even holds a 7 pound Maximo!
I had a lot of people asking for this pattern bag to be
 written for a chunky yarn.
 When I saw the Red Heart Strata Yarn, I immediately thought 
it was perfect for this bag pattern.
And it is!

Pattern:
Option 1 - ch 37, Option 2 - ch 27
R: 1 - ch 36, *2 sc in the 2nd ch from the hook, 1 sc in each ch across, 2 sc in the last ch*,

Working back down the opposite side of the ch, repeat from * to *, join, ch 1
(Op.1 - 38 + 38 = 76 sc, Op.2 28 + 28 = 56sc)

R: 2 - R: 3 -1 sc in each sc around, join, ch1 (76 sc, 56 sc))

R: 4 - 1 sc in each sc, join, ch 3 (76 sc, 56 sc))

R: 5 - 1 dc in the 1st 2 sts, ch 1, sk the next st,
* 1dc in the next 2 sts, ch 1, sk the next st* , repeat from * to *around,
join to 1st dc.

R: 6 - Ch 3, and 1 dc in the sp between the 1st 2 dc, ch1,
 *2 dc in the space between the next 2 dc to form a "V", ch 1 *
 Repeat from * to * around, join to 1st dc.

R: 7-22 - Repeat R : 6 ( add more rows if you want a longer bag)

R: 23 - 1 sc in each st around, join, ch 1

R: 24-26 - Repeat R : 23
Handle :
R: 1 - Ch 36
 ( Ch more If  a longer handle is desired - this would be a great over the shoulder bag)
1 sc in each sc, ch1, turn

R: 2 - R: 4 - 1 sc in each sc, ch 1 turn, tie off after R :4

Sew one end to each side of the bag with matching thread.....Now lets go shopping!

Crocheted bags, sweaters or even collars are very beautiful, and look so nice on our dogs. And besides the fact these are beautiful, crocheted dog accessories are also very comfortable for our little or big animal friends.

I'm confused about something. Starting with rnd 6 you say to ch 4, which I assume counts as a dc + ch 1, then you say do work 2 dc between the next 2 dc of the previous rnd, ch 1 and repeat this around. But you don't say to add a dc in same spot as the ch 4 so that leaves one dc by it's self on one side of the bag but not one on the other. Can you explain it to me please?
