To make a magic ring, you’ll need to hold the yarn in your hand and wrap the working yarn around your forefinger twice to create a ring, slip the ring off your finger and insert the hook to pick up first st, ch1, then work the necessary sts for Round 1. Close the ring tightly by pulling the loose end.
The baubles can be worked in any colour combo you like, so where the pattern reads Yarn A, B or C, use your choice of yarn. If you’re new to crochet, head to www.molliemakes.com to find video tutorials for each stitch.
