COULD SOMEONE PLEASE EXPLAIN WHAT A "MAGIC RING" IS IN CROCHETING? i AM MAKING HAT THAT TELLS ME TO MAKE A "MAGIC RING". i HAVE NEVER HEARD THAT TERM BEFORE.
Hi- I just came across your note, and I've tried this before, but I don't think it was called a "magic ring". It is basically starting the center of the hat, by crocheting in a slip knot, then pulling it tight. It makes the center easier to start and neater when pulled tight. Look at this link for more instructions http://www.ehow.com/how_2265355_crochet-magic-ring.html Also, you might be able to find it on YouTube. Hope this helps you get started! -PacaDia
PacaDia: Thanks for the info. I printed out the directions because I make ALOT of Amigurumi toys for my grandchildren. Thanks for taking the time to reply!!
