How to Crochet the Magic Circle or Finger Wrap
Have you ever run across a pattern that asked you to start with a “magic circle” or “finger wrap”? I’ll be it was a pattern that was going to be worked in the round and where you needed to have a very small hole at the beginning. When I first came across instructions to do the magic circle I was completely confused. I think the first time I just ended up working in the second chain of a chain 2 chain instead (that worked by the way, but not as well as the magic circle). Then I learned the magic circle and understood the hype! It’s not that hard, and it makes for a very tight and beautiful finish (or beginning) to a piece worked in the round.
This quick 3 minute tutorial will get you going!
