Not reversible.
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
