ROW 1: HDCinto 2nd ch from hook, HDC in each st across, turn. <24>
ROW 2-44: ch 1, HDC in BLO, turn. <24>
*Fold the band in half. Drop the loop on hook, insert your hook to the first st of foundation row, draw loop through, ch 1. Take both loops of same st of foundation row and only back loop of row 44, make a sl st. Work a sl st into each st of foundation row to back loops of each st of row 44. Do not turn your work after joining the brim. We will keep working on the wrong side.
