Learn: Magic Circle or Magic Ring

Magic circle (or magic ring) is the first technique I learned as an amigurumi beginner. It's used to start a piece, and is the preferable method to the chain method. As you can see from the picture above, there is no gaping hole in the middle when you begin with a magic ring, and amigurumi is all about crocheting tightly so no stuffing will show through.

Prefer to watch someone demo it? You'll find lots of magic ring videos online. Here are two different ways to do it:
