One of the things I love most about crocheting is the art of crocheting in the round. There’s no long, pesky foundation chain to poke your hook through, just a magic ring (or a few chain stitches joined to form a ring) and then you’re off.
I made up some simple coasters for spring to introduce you to making a magic ring and crocheting in the round. Working in rounds opens up a whole new world of possibility—hats, amugurimi, seamless wristwarmers, you name it! Check out the step-by-step photos to get started, or zoom straight to the pattern if you already know this stuff.
