What can I use instead of a magic circle in crochet?
In order to crochet the alternative magic ring, start by crocheting a chain of 4. Then slip stitch into the first chain to make a loop. Many crocheters know how to do this “type” of magic ring.Sep 13, 2019
Why is my magic circle not working?
Why is my magic ring too tight? If you are using thicker yarn, you may find that the circle created by your index finger isn’t large enough. If this is the case, try wrapping the yarn around two or three fingers to give it a larger circle. Pull the yarn through the same way as if you used just your index finger.Jul 28, 2020
What’s a magic ring in crochet?
A magic ring (magic loop) allows an item to be worked in the round while creating a tightly closed centre. The alternative method, when crocheting in the round, is to make a small foundation chain; close this chain into a ring with a slip stitch; and work your first round into that ring.
How do you keep a magic ring from loosening?
Usually I start by weaving that first end in the same direction it was going before, all around the circle, to add a little extra strength and make sure it’s just as tight as I want it to be. Then, it’s important to turn it around and go the opposite direction!Apr 12, 2016
