    • A “magic circle” or “magic ring” is a way to start making the hat so the stitches are tighter and closer together than making chains and joining the loop. You basically make a loop a few inches from the end of your yarn and insert your hook from front to back and pull up a loop. Ch 1 then follow the amount of chains in the pattern into the middle of the circle you just made. I am working on creating videos to show various techniques but in the meantime there are many videos on YouTube that show how to do it. It is definitely worth knowing, I think it makes hats and anything worked in the round look nice, tight and neat. Hope this helps!
