The pattern is in US terms.
Start with any amount of chains required to achieve the circumference needed.
For an adult woman size, with measurements and yarn/hook combination (above), chain 65 + 1.
1st row: slip stitch in second chain from the hook, ss in every st to the end, ch1 and turn; (65 slip stitches) - forming a 'V'.
2nd row: In back loop of all the stitches across this row, hdcss; ch1 and turn.
Continue with row 2 until your work measures 2cm, 20-21".
Leaving a long tail to sew the ends together, cut the yarn.
folding the knot
- With the wrong side of your piece facing you, fold both ends in half.
- Think of the one end in your left hand as a "C" and a flipped "C" in your right.
- Insert the flipped "C" into the "C", to form a layer.
- Layer = bottom "C", bottom flipped "C", top "C" and then top flipped "C".
- Sew through all the layers and secure your end.
- Weave in remaining ends.
