How to Crochet a Magic Ring for Amigurumi

 

This video tutorial is very useful for all you beginners out there who want to learn how to crochet a magic ring for Amigurumi. The magic ring (also called a magic circle) technique is a great way to create a tightly closed circle in the middle of your Amigurumi project. When you continue crocheting around the circle, your toys will look nice and neat without a big hole in the middle of your work.

Typically, crochet toys will start with a magic ring, which is why I will show you an easy way of mastering this technique! If you would like to see how I use the magic ring technique in my patterns, then check out my FREE Amigurumi patterns here.

And if you would like to learn how to start your Amigurumi project with a chain (Amigurumi oval) instead then check out my How to crochet Amigurumi around a foundation chain video tutorial. Unlike a magic ring that gives you a nice round shape, crocheting around a foundation chain results in an oval shape.
