It’s never been simpler to find out. Enjoy our unique video tutorial from Hopeful Honey or follow the actions listed below to start!
Step by action
- Take the loose end of yarn and location it over your fingers making sure it is at the top of your hand, so your palm is facing you.
- Take your working end of yarn and wrap it around your index finger and your middle finger. Wrap around the front of your fingers so the yarn makes an X design.
- Take the same working hair and cover it around behind your fingers pinch it in between your ring finger and pinky finger.
- Turn your hand so your palm is dealing with far from you. There will be two loops.
- Take your crochet hook and insert through your first loop then hook around the 2nd loop. As you pull it out underneath that very first loop twist it in your direction so there is one loop on your hook.
- Next yarn over with your working hair of yarn and pull it through that loop on your hook.
- Now gently take that circle off your fingers. You have just created your magic circle!
- So now you’ll require to chain your preferred length for the stitches you’ll be dealing with. In this example we’ll be chaining 2 as we’ll be using double crochet. Now crochet eleven double crochets into your magic circle.
- When you have finished the wanted quantity of crochet stitches take the loose end of your yarn and pull it as tight as you can synching in that circle.
- To join the 2 ends together slip stitch your very first stitch.
