Step 4: yarn over and draw through a loop, bringing it through both sides of the fabric. (3 loops remaining on hook)
Step 5: yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook. (2 loops remaining on hook)
Step 6: yarn over and draw through remaining 2 loops on hook.

BEG CL: Make 3 CH, then yarn over insert hook into the ring;
