In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to start your project by making a magic circle. This is a must-know technique for any crocheter. A magic circle (loop or ring, as it's also called) is an alternative to the standard way of starting a circle, by making a small chain and crocheting out of that. The magic circle makes sure there are no holes in the center after you're done, giving your projects a finished and professional look.
