R : 24 - Ch 2, * 1 dc in the next 6 dc, st the next 2 dc together ( dc dec) * , Repeat from
 * to *  around, turn

R : 25 - Repeat R : 24

R : 26 - Ch 1, 1 hdc in dc, turn

 R : 27 - 1 sc in each hdc, 1 sc in the 1st corner of the opening, sc evenly down the side of the opening, sc across bottom of opening, then back up the other side, 2 sc in the second corner, tie off and weave in end.
