Alternative Magic Ring Method


Alt method with text

There is another way

Do you absolutely hate the magic ring? Do you cringe every time a pattern or tutorial requires you start your project by using the magic ring? Have you tried and tried to master this technique and still come up short? If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions, you MUST watch my tutorial for the alternative magic ring method!

I have several patterns which recommend the use of a magic ring. I have filmed detailed tutorials of how to do it. Even though I’ve taken the measures to explain the magic ring to my audience, I can’t deny the fact that not everyone will get it and even if they do, they  may hate it! Here is my solution: demonstrate an alternative magic ring method.

All you’ll need for the alternative magic ring method is your yarn (or scraps if your practicing), your crochet hook and a darning needle.
