Circular Crochet: 19 Magic Ring Crochet Patterns
Learn magic circle crochet and check out these projects using the circle/ring technique.
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 like 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. With this collection of Circular Crochet: 19 Magic Ring Crochet Patterns, you can find tutorials for the magic ring as well as patterns that use it.
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.
