You’re welcome To make the circle you are making a slip stitch (insert hook, yarn over and pull through both loops on hook) into the chain at the very end 🙂

Hi, does it matter which side i insert the hook when making the slip stitch?
BellaCocoTeamJuly 31, 2021 at 9:07 pm
You should insert the hook in the same way as you would when making a normal stitch

Hello, I am a complete beginner – could I use this stitch to make a baby blanket?
BellaCocoTeamApril 15, 2020 at 5:23 pm
Hi Kahlea You can only work this stitch in the round, so while it’s great for making bags and cowls but unfortunately not flat pieces like baby blankets. If you like the look of this stitch I would have a look at some of my other tutorials such as grit stitch which has a lovely texture too

Would this stitch work on border of blanket?
BellaCocoTeamApril 28, 2020 at 5:59 pm
Yes you could use this for a border provided you keep working in the same direction, and don’t turn your work over after each round
