Needles: 16" circular needle in size US 7

Notions: Tapestry needle, stitch marker

So let's make this bad boy! First, cast on 100 stitches, place marker, and join in round. And then we'll move straight to the main pattern, which is Fisherman's Rib from page 4 of Barbara G. Walker's A Second Treasury of Knitting Patterns, except adapted for the round. Anyway, it goes as follows:

Row 1: * p1, k2, p1, k1 *

Row 2: * p1, k2, p1, k1 through back loop (k1-tbl) *

Row 3: * p4, k1 *

Row 4: * p4, k1-tbl *

Knit rows 1 - 4 until piece measures between 8 and 12 inches, depending on preference (I stopped at 10"), and you've just finished row 2 of the pattern. Bind off loosely in pattern and tuck in ends.
