Crochet Tutorial: Magic Ring Alternative

Have you tried using the “Magic Ring” to begin crocheting in the round and found it difficult? Have you ended up going back to crocheting chains, joining them and crocheting into the circle you just made? Whilst that’s an easy way to start, it does leave an issue with closing the circle tightly, which is a necessity for many projects that are crocheted in the round.

Lots of people find the Magic Ring difficult though, no matter how many videos they watch. You are not alone! I prefer this simple alternative which can be mastered in a couple of minutes. Stick the kettle on – by the time it’s boiled you’ll have mastered this simple technique.

Oh, and if you’re offering, mine’s black, no sugar, thanks 😉


Don’t forget to let me know how you get on.
