Knit top down.

Knit using the rib & stockinette stitch.

Knit in the round with a circular needle.

I knit mine using HiyaHiya interchangeable needles with 3 1/2” {9cm} tips.

When knitting in the round you’re always knitting the right side of your work.

CO loosely, making sure your stitches slide easily. Too tight of a stitch will make these difficult to knit in the round. The first couple of rounds will be a little tight, but it gets easier as you go.
