How To Make A Magic Circle/Ring:
Step 1: Hold the tail end of the yarn between your thumb, pointer, and middle finger.
Step 2: Take the yarn connected to the ball of yarn and wrap it around the front of your pointer and middle fingers to create an “x” shape and back over to the back of your fingers. It should look like you have two loops wrapped around your fingers.
Step 3: Take your hook and place it under the first loop and hook it over the second. Then, using your hook, pull the second loop of yarn under (through) the first.
Step 4: Chain one to secure the magic circle in place.
