Written Instructions on How to Make a Magic Circle in Crochet

Although for me, watching a video is the easiest way to learn this crochet technique, you may find written instructions easy too.

Step 1. Using your left hand (or right if you are a lefty) wrap your yarn around your index, middle, and ring finger – two times – creating an X.

Step 2. Insert your crochet hook under the strand of yarn closest to your thumb.

Step 3. Grab the strand of yarn closest to your pinky.

Step 4. In one motion, pull that strand through and twist it up.

Step 5. Chain 1 to secure it.

That’s it!
