Row 12: Knit* - *In the 13th point row 12 will be cast off rather than Knit.
Repeat these 12 rows until 13 points have been formed.
At end of 13th point leave 6-8 inch tail and sew the 1st and 13th point edges together using a whip stitch.
Using tail in the centre of the cloth (or with a new length of yarn if no tail), pick up the garter stitch bumps at the end of each inner row and pull tightly to gather the centre stitches and secure.
**To avoid a seam, Provisional Cast On may be used in the beginning and stitches grafted or bound off using three needle bind off at the end.
