This is the handiest video tutorial you'll ever find if you want to start crochet without a hole. This Crochet Magic Ring Tutorial shows you how. If you want to start your granny square afghan without the hole in the middle or make a circular afghan, you'll want to use this method.
It's a straightforward crochet tutorial from which even a beginner can watch and learn. Once you get started with this technique, the whole afghan will seem like a breeze and you'll work it up quickly. Grab your yarn and hook to begin learning this crochet adjustable ring.
Yarn Weight(4) Medium Weight/Worsted Weight and Aran (16-20 stitches to 4 inches)
- Yarn of choice
- Crochet hook of choice
Crochet Magic Ring Tutorial:
This is a tutorial that is much easier to watch than read since there are so many little details. However, if you get stuck on any of the written instructions below, there are also pictures to show you just how the crochet adjustable ring should look as you go.
Hold up three fingers together and drape the yarn over the open inside fingers.
Hold the yarn in the front with your thumb and grab the yarn from the back of the hand with your other hand. Wrap it around your fingers, over the top of the part of the yarn piece you are holding. Drop this part of the yarn on the left side of the main piece that's coming from the ball.
With your crochet hook, go under the right-most piece of yarn on your hand and pull the left-most yarn through and up.
Pull your fingers out GENTLY from the yarn shape you have created.
Set up your hook, hands, and yarn as you would when preparing to crochet, carefully holding the magic ring piece you've created if needed.
Work the number of chains shown in your magic ring pattern. The pattern used here calls for 3 chains and 2 double crochets.
Note: The key to working in the magic loop is that you go through the loop and pick up the yarn from behind the two pieces of looped yarn. (See image one below - her thumb is on the two strands you will pull the yarn behind.)
Once you have finished your row of stitches, you should see a loop under the stitches (image one below) as well as the loose piece of yarn and attached tail. Remove your hook and grab the loose piece of yarn. Pull. You will see the piece start to become a circle (image two below). Adjust the yarn if necessary during the tug.
Place your hook back into your slip knot and continue following your pattern directions. In this pattern, it says to join to the first double crochet. Continue with your pattern now that the magic circle has been created.
