What is a magic ring in crocheting?
A magic ring (magic loop) allows an item to be worked in the round while creating a tightly closed centre. The alternative method, when crocheting in the round, is to make a small foundation chain; close this chain into a ring with a slip stitch; and work your first round into that ring.
How do you crochet a magic ring?
Working from right to left, slide the crochet hook under the right-hand piece of yarn and over the left-hand piece. Grab the left-hand yarn and pull up a loop. Make your first round of stitches into the ring. Insert the hook into the magic ring, and draw up a loop to begin your first SC.
