Magic Circle

Magic Circle: If your work requires 6 single crochets in round 1 you do the following:
Make a slip knot with a 10 cm tail-end. Take the strand of yarn coming from the ball and wrap anti clockwise twice around your index finger so that the slip knot is just below the finger furthest away from your palm. Take the tail-end and wrap anti clockwise once around your middle and ring fingers – hold it in place with your thumb.
Insert your hook in the loop – place yarn over hook and pull back through the loop – place the yarn over your hook and pull hook through both loops.
Continue till you have 6 single crochets.
Pull the tail-end of the yarn and the hole closes up.
Some patterns will go straight to round 2 – others will finish this round with a slip stitch in the first single crochet.
