2 Ways How to Single Crochet a Magic Circle

Crochet Magic Circle Tutorial Video - 2 Ways How to Single Crochet an Adjustable Magic Circle Ring Step-by-step Video Tutorial


With your crochet hook, wrap around twice around your hook. One, two, taking the tail and holding it like this. Now notice. There are two wraparounds. The first one lies closer to the hook. Whereas, the second one lies farther from the hook. Pull the first loop towards the back and through the back loop. This creates your base. It looks like a noose around the neck of the yarn. This step is very important with the single strand. It's going to play an important role. That said, yarn over.

How to Work Into the Chain, Yarn Over, and Pull Through

Pull through 2. Chain 2. This will make a single strand on the base. Pull through. I'm going to single crochet, push my hook through, then yarn over. I'm going to go through one. I'm going to count it as a single crochet.

How Do You Single Crochet in the Round?


I have my eight strands of single crochet stitches especially when I'm working in the round. It's great!

The second technique I have for you is using the same yarn. Pull the tail end, but the difference is that you're going to use your four fingers. You can either, depending on how wide or how long of the circle.

If you're making a big circle, you could use your four fingers. I prefer to use three. I like it because I have a stronger grip and more control.

I'm going to work slowly. Hold it. Wrap around fingers turns around like so.

I like using this insert. Now, look at what I'm doing. Inserting my crochet hook through both circles. Now, I'm going to pull that outer string through the center of the single-stranded circle. Yarn over. Pull through. I don't want to pull it too hard because it's going to be harder to open up. So I'm going to crochet the same 8. The first demonstration inside the circle pulls through.

Okay. Do you see how I did this all around the single strand? This is perfect for working in the round, especially crocheting hats. I'm going to pull with my single-stranded string and notice it's going to tug and close the circle.

Here are the first two loops. Yarn over. and Slip stitch. There is a wide gap. I'm going to count.

Okay. Better yet. If you want to make it into eight, single crochet one into the second loop or the loop where you began. Now, let's count again.

Okay. There you go. You made an extra stitch. So there! You got your eight. What's nice about this is especially making a hat or anything in the round. The middle lies flat whether you use a small or large amount of single crochet stitches. The beginning work lies flatter. You can begin with 3, 5, 8, 13, etc. depending on your pattern. The work appears flat in the back and front. But anyway. Cut your yarn to make a tail if you need to and there you have it. Happy crocheting! #strawberrycouture
