Before binding off all stitches for the last time, with WS facing, cast on 21 sts, and turn.

Last Row: bind off 21 sts. Place the very first stitch to the left-hand needle, knit this stitch and the next stitch together and go on binding off all other stitches. In this way, we made a loop for hanging.
