This project is made in the round from top to bottom. The ribbing is worked vertically to the last round in a join-as-you-go method.

When working the single crochet ribbing, if the last stitch of the row is a bit loopy, work under both loops for the last stitch of a row.

After round 3, about 3.25″ across
