How to Crochet a Magic Ring: 19 Patterns


For as much or as little as you have been crocheting, have you ever been bold enough to learn how to crochet something new? Are you one of those crocheters who likes to make the same thing over and over in different colors or are you one who never repeats the same project twice? Have you ever learned how to crochet a magic ring? The magic ring is also known as the magic adjustable ring, the crochet adjustable ring or the crochet magic loop.

The crochet magic ring is a really neat way to start a project because it helps keep your project a little bit tighter than it would if you used a regular chain start. You'll notice that in a chain start there's a little bit of a hole at the beginning or top of your project. With learning how to crochet a magic ring, that hole will no longer exist making your project look neat and precise. Some of the projects that use this technique are amigurumi characters, hats and socks. Many of the amigurumi patterns I've seen have all started using the magic ring. If you're going to make a cute little animal, you're going to want him to be as tight as possible especially if you're going to stuff him. You won't want to see a hole at the top or have stuffing hanging out.

Before we dive into the fun patterns take a look at the video on how to crochet a magic ring. You can also learn a bit of how to crochet amigurumi with a double ring.

Crochet in the Round: Hats

I personally find it very difficult to crochet in the round when attempting to make hats. I've tried on several occasions and I just can't seem to get it. For all you advanced crocheters, more power to you! All the hats that I tried had me learning how to crochet a magic ring first. Of course that took some time to learn as well. I bet you'll love all these hats though, don't be intimidated! Learn how to crochet in the round and it'll make your crochet experience that much better.
