Start with a contrasting colour, crochet chain, with approximately 15 more chain stitches than required for the cast on, also, it is wise to place a knot at the end of the chain to indicate which end of the chain to start the picked up stitches.
Now you begin the pick up and knit stitches through the back loop on the chain. When you have reached the required number of stitches, join in the round, placing marker at the beginning of the Round.
Work the rounds until required measurement from the cast on edge.
