An al­ter­na­tive foun­da­tion ring for work­ing in the round

Simply Crochet - - YOUR GUIDE -

1 To start a Magic Loop, don’t make a slip­knot. In­stead, make a loop with the yarn, leav­ing a tail around 10cm long. Make sure the tail end is un­der the work­ing yarn.

2 Now in­sert your hook into the loop, from front to back. Wrap the work­ing yarn around the hook and pull the yarn through the loop.

3 Make a t-ch for the sts you want to work (above, we made 1 t-ch for dc). Work your sts into the Magic Loop, over both the loop and the tail end (so two yarn strands).

4 Once you’ve worked the first round of stitches, sim­ply pull the tail end of yarn to draw up the ring. Work a slip stitch to join the last and first sts to fin­ish the first round (as in­structed in the guide be­low).
