Ridge cap shingles for slope roof?


I am building a shed, as detailed here:

Joist doesn't match dimension of joist hanger!

and am now up to the roof stage. It is a shed roof with a 12 degree pitch. What is the best way to do the ridge cap, as there is no ridge, just an edge of OSB?

Thanks and thanks!

There are no pictures of the roof line.
If it's just a sloped roof, apply a fascia board at the top, install a drip edge over the top of the fascia and shingle over the the top by 3/4".
