Tutorial Overview

In this tutorial we'll demonstrate how to create a magic ring. This technique is often used when crocheting amigurumi characters, and other projects that are worked in the round.


Step-by-step guide

Step 1:

Holding your yarn tail, make a loose ring around your right hand, with the yarn leading to the ball lying on top, and the tail end underneath.

Step 2:

Hold the yarn ring in place with your middle finger and thumb.

Step 3:

With the hook in your left hand, and the working yarn held taut, insert your hook into the ring from left to right.

Step 4:

Wrap the working yarn over your hook, and bring it back through the ring.

Step 5:

Secure the ring by making one chain stitch.

Step 6:

Following your crochet pattern, work the number of stitches required into the ring.

Step 7:

Make sure each stitch is worked around both strands of your magic ring.

Step 8:

Once you have completed your stitches, gently pull the yarn tail to gather them and close the ring. Your pattern will specify whether you should join your round using a slip stitch, or another method.

You have now created a magic ring!
