When knitting in the round you’re always knitting the right side of your work.
You’re knitting a tube, double thickness, and then seaming the CO and BO edges together.

Pattern, Knit in the Round in the Magic Loop Method:

CO 40 STS, split 20 STS on each needle, join in the round.
Knit all rounds until desired length.
BO in all knit STS.
Sew the CO & BO edges together using the mattress stitch.

It fits a little snug, but loosens up after a few wears.

Sew CO & BO edge together.
Weave in the ends.
No blocking necessary.
