[Crochet] The Magical Circle

[Copy link]

I have seen in some patterns that we are to use something called 'the magical circle'. Is this very hard to learn? Is this a better way than using a chain then joining? I havent heard of this before last year, is this a new technique?

IMO it's much better than the chain method, I use it wherever I can no matter what the pattern says. Some instructions are overly complicated and make it seem harder than it is. I'll have a go at writing them but if you can find the right video it'll be a lot less confusing.

Basically, lay the yarn over your palm with the tail pointing to you then loop the yarn around in a circle on top of that so that the ball is at the other side of the hand. Take your hook, put it through the centre of the loop and yo (it can be tricky to hold everything tight enough here when you're starting out), pull it through to the centre of the loop, yo outside the loop and pull through loop on hook. Now the slip knot is made and you have a ring that you can crochet in to. After you've done the required number of stitches, just pull the tail and it will close up tight.

Magic Ring is the modern term for what I learned many years a go as the 'sliding loop' or ladies slip knot start.

I use the magic circle all the time for crocheting on the round.  You just need to make sure that the end is really secure to avoid it coming lose.

Using this method prevents a hole in the center when starting a ring.
