"I know what you are thinking. Easiest Magic Circle with Crochet? Yeah, right! How could that possible be? As you know, my patterns never used the magic circle before. Why? Well I wasn’t really into making it. It always seemed pretty hard to me. HA! Was I wrong! This method of starting is actually really easy. So if I can figure it out, I know you can. :) Besides I’m here to guide you through it."

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I have always disliked patterns that require making magic circles, even though they always end up looking better than chaining, where you get a little hole in the middle. So I am really pleased to see this instructional contribution. I have tried it and it IS a bit easier than the method I have used previously. Just goes to show you are never too old to learn a new way of doing something!

I have never been able to get the hang of the magic circle. I have tried different methods but without luck. I finally just gave up and went back to chain four beginnings. I checked this one over and it seems like this may be workable. I am going to give it a shot.

I use Magic Circles all the time, so if theres an easier way for my fumble fingers to work one, Im all for it! This designer uses a method thats similar to what Im using now, but there are some slight changes. The criss cross method is easier, but it still requires manipulating the yarn. She also provides short instructional videos for both right and left handers if youre unfamiliar with the techniques.
