How To Crochet Magic Ring

  • Magic ring, also known as a magic loop, magic circle, is a special technique used to start a looped item , such as a crocheted project in the round.
  • The beauty of the magic loop is that it creates a seamless starting point, making for a neat and solid center for crochet projects.
  • It takes some practice to master the magic loop technique, but once familiarized, it becomes an ideal way to start a crochet loop project.

NoteIn this tutorial we use a double loop to make a magic ring, which will be stronger than a regular magic ring. If you want to make a regular magic ring, just make only one loop when wrapping the yarn.
