Row 1 (Green): Slip Stitch across row into every stitch of foundation chain. Plus 1 Turning Stitch. Turn Work.
Rows 2-100 (Green): Double Slip Stitch across rows into every stitch. Plus 1 Turning Stitch at the end of each row before turning work.
At the end of row 100, end work by fastening off with 1 extra chain stitch into the last stitch. Cut yarn leaving a 6 inch tail. (Unthread the easyloop® tool by pulling cut yarn end backward out of the tool needles). Pull yarn end to tighten the last stitch.
Finishing: Weave loose yarn ends in using the easyloop® yarn tool and the “weaving ends in” technique. ♦
