Note:  I always use a chain 1 as the step up at the beginning of the round to create full stitches at the beginning of my work.  The chain tends to leave gaps and holes.  You can use other techniques for the beginning stitch on your round.  The outcome will be the same.

Attach a slip knot to the crochet hook.
