Ch 3 and sl st into beginning ring to form a ring
sc and ch 1, (this will count as your first dc) dc 11 into ring (12 sts)
Round 2 (for this round and rest, we will be using the back sts)

I try to show you in two ways in this picture the stitch I am working in, the one to the left shows the stitch brought up, and the right is showing you the finished stitch. If you look at the left one, the hook is pulling up the loop that is just behind the top of the stitch. This is the back stitch I am talking about.
