Start by making a magic loop and chaining 1. Then make 8 double crochet stitches into the loop. Pull the tail end of the loop up tight so the dc's come into a circle shape. Then make a slip stitch into the 1st dc that you made to close the circle. Next, chain 1 and make 2 dc's into the same stitch you just made your clip stitch into. Continue round the circle, making 2 dc's into each stitch. Fasten off and row one is complete.
