crochet blog challenge How to Crochet the Magic Circle

I recently joined the 52 Week Crochet Blogging Challenge hosted by Julie of Red Berry Crochet. This week’s challenge was to try a new crochet tip. I decided to try the Magic Circle. I’d done it once before and didn’t really like it but so many people think it’s genius that I wanted to give it another chance.

How to Magic Ring Crochet

Step One:

Make a loop around your fingers with the working yarn on the right and the tail on the left. Ambassador Crochet does a great job of breaking down the instructions for how to make the correct loop by beginning with a backwards J and crossing the tail end behind the working end of the yarn.

Step Two:
