At the point when piece is worked in the round, begin with this system to maintain a strategic distance from opening in the center (rather than ch-ring):
Hold the yarn end and wind the yarn one time around the pointer to make a circle. Hold the circle with left thumb and center finger, put the yarn over left forefinger.
Embed snare through the circle, make a YO and pull yarn through circle, work ch 3, then work 11 dc around the circle. Pull the yarn end to fix circle.
