The instructions for joining strips A through E are incorrect. The correct procedure is as follows:

Sl st in first lp of upper strip, *[ch 2, sc in next lp on opposite strip] 6 times, ch 2, sc in next 2-lp group on opposite (lower) strip, ch 2, sc in next lp on opposite strip; rep from * across, ending  [ch 2, sc in next lp on opposite strip] 6 times, ch 2, sc in next 2-lp group on opposite strip. Fasten off.  (Note: You will be “increasing” 5 loops on the lower strip for every 4 loops taken on the upper strip.)
