Easy Crochet Magic Circle Tutorial

In this post you will learn how to make an Easy Crochet Magic Circle Tutorial. The magic circle is used to create so many projects, including beanies, toques, I used the magic circle to create so many crochet projects including the Sequoia Ridge Slouchy Beanie.

There are so many ways to create a magic circle. Even after all these years, crocheters are coming up with new ways to create the magic circle. I recently watched a tutorial from Toni Lipsi and she found an even easier way! I love how as crocheters we innovate our craft and it’s ever evolving.

The magic circle is fabulous for all projects worked in the round because it creates the option to tighten or loosen the center hole – with ease.  I hope you enjoy this video tutorial, please share if you love it!
