How to Use the Magic Ring in Crochet

Magic Ring Instructions

  1. Take the tail of your yarn and wrap it around your fingers 2-3 times. 

    Pro Tip: It may be easiest to start with 3 loops around your fingers until you get more comfortable with this method.

  2. Go through two of the three wraps with your hook, and then hook the farthest piece of yarn and bring it back through. 

  3. Hold that loop in your fingers that you created and then begin working your pattern. You will secure that loop with your first set of chains. 

  4. Your stitches are going to be worked into that loop or "ring" that you have created. 

  5. When it comes time to tighten up your work, simply pull the tail end of your magic loop and you can bring it together. 

  6. When it comes time to end your ring, you will just want to slip stitch into that first loop.
