with 7 mm hook
Foundation: ch 7.
Row 1: working in back bumps of the chain base, sc in 2nd ch from hook, and sc across, turn. <6>
Row 2: ch 1, sc in the blo across, turn. <6>
Rows 3-40: repeat row 2.
if you want to make it shorter or longer, just be sure that you have an even number of rows at the end.
When you finish the ribbed band, fold it in half so that foundation and last row are on top of on another. Drop the working loop and insert hook to the first st of foundation row and pull through the loop in it, join them together and ch 1. Working through the both loops of foundation row and back loop of the last row, seam the two rows together by slip stitching across. Do not cut the yarn. Turn your work. Continue on to work in rounds along the edge of ribbed band.
**note: the pattern is created by alternating spike stitch. you need to place a spike stitch where you see a single crochet and a single crochet where you see a spike stitch.
