Start crocheting in round with a "Magic ring"

A magic ring is a way to begin crocheting in round by crocheting the first round into an adjustable loop and then pulling the loop tight. This is great way to start crocheting your toys, because you can pull the loop very tight so you won't have a hole in the middle of your first round.

Alternatively you can chain 2 and then crochet the first round into the second chain from hook.

Amigurumi pieces usually start with six single crochet stitches, so this is what I'm using as an example here.

1. Make a loop so the working yarn goes over the yarn end.

2. Grab the join between your thumb and forefinger. Insert the hook through the loop, grab the yarn and draw up a loop.
