Materials Needed:

  • Worsted weight yarn (approx. 200 yards)

  1. Start with a slip knot and chain 90 stitches (adjust for a looser or tighter fit).
  2. Join the last chain to the first chain with a slip stitch, being careful not to twist the chain.
  3. Round 1: Ch 2 (counts as first hdc here and throughout), hdc in each chain around. Join with a sl st to the top of the starting ch-2. (90 hdc)
