to do this, create the chain while joining the frist picot loop with the last picot loop of the ring, 3 double stiches, picot loop, 3 double stiches, then pull the needle thru without looping the thread. then pull it taunt, then you are able to turn the work and join the first loop of the very first ring, 3 double stiches, pull these off the needle. then tie a knot and loop the needle thru the bottom of the first ring.

I usually do 2 knots.

hide the ends by sewing them into the inner center ring.
