Working crochet around top edge of knitted piece

I have knitted a purse to later be felted. Instructions read: "Work 1 rnd single crochet around top edge."
I do not crochet but followed directions on a website to make a chain. Now, how do I crochet into the knitted bag? Once I make the first knot on the c needle, do I pull the yarn through the knitted stitch and also the crochet loop?
