How To Crochet A Magic Ring With Easier Slip Knot – Cinch Circle


hi everyone welcome to my channel this
is Sharon Ojala and today I’m going to show you how I made this magic ring now
this isn’t anything new I’ve had a magic ring tutorial here on YouTube for about
seven years now but this is a new way of getting the magic ring a little bit
easier the only reason I have never done this method before was because of the
way the Slip knot was made I didn’t like that it was kind of confusing but I have
recently figured out how to make that Slip knot using my fingers and not my
hook and then the rest of it comes very easy so if you want to see how I made
this loop with six single crochet stitches then keep watching this video
alright my friends were gonna make a slip knot for our hook but we’re not
gonna use our hook to do it we’re just gonna use our fingers so take our yarn
the shorter yarn tail also known as the starting yarn tail I’m gonna hold
between my finger and my thumb and then the working yarn that’s the one attached
to my yarn ball I’m gonna hold it between my finger and my thumb now we’re
gonna make a simple loop just by bringing our fingers together and I’m
gonna bring the working yarn towards me and I’m gonna hold the top of that just
to hold the loop closed then the working yarn I’m gonna put behind the loop now I
want to bring that working yarn through the loop I can push it through from
behind or pull it through it doesn’t matter
bring it through and then get my finger and my thumb in there just like crab
pinchers and I’m gonna twist over and grab the working yarn and pull it
through the loop on my fingers twist over grab the working yarn and pull it
through it creates a big loop but it’s
adjustable so we just have to pull in the working yarn tail and it gets
that loop down to size and then we can get ready to crochet on there we’ve made
our Slip knot using our fingers let’s do it again
I’m gonna take that shorter yarn tail and hold it between my finger and my
thumb and there is a bit of a length there to work with and then working yarn
in between my finger and my thumb now I’m gonna make a lip bringing my fingers
together bringing the working yarn towards me now I’m gonna pinch the top
of that hold it closed and the working yarn goes behind
the loop now I want that working yarn through the loop so I can push it
through or pull it through whatever works then I get my finger in my thumb
in there and now I’m gonna twist over and grab that working yarn and pull it
through the loop on my fingers twisting over grab the yarn and pull it through
and that is a big loop but it is adjustable we just have to pull on the
working yarn now one more thing I want to show you about this circle if you’re
ready to crochet on and you’ve made the circle too small or too large you can
adjust it just by pulling on the strings so we’re gonna be working with the
shorter yarn tail we can pull on it to make it bigger see how it pulls is
starting yarn tail but that’s too big to work with you want to make it
smaller so we’ll just pull on this starting yarn tail so it’s very
adjustable now you can put your stitches into this ring most amigurumi patterns
start off with six single crochet stitches so let’s do that together I’ll
be crushing around this starting yard tail at the same time going through the
circle grabbing the working yarn and pulling it through the circle I have two
loops now I’m going to yarn over and pull through those two loops and there
was one single crochet I’m gonna do that five more times there’s my six single crochets now
they’re called stitches and you can see the loops of the stitches they look like
Vs and there’s six of those going down we’re gonna close up this ring by
pulling on this starting yarn tail if this starts to look a little bit wonky
here it is straighten it out and then pull on it again now the one thing I did
notice about this method is this ring will loosen up before you even start the
second row and you want to close that up especially if it’s going to be visible
here is that very loop that we just made this is the top of the head so we don’t
want a big gap there if you look at the stitches pull out your last one so you
don’t lose it the first one to count is underneath this big loop you can see it
there there’s one two three four five and six and there’s two loops and every
stitch like I said when you go through make sure you’re going through both
loops of the stitch every time you go through unless the pattern tells you
otherwise you’ll be pushing your hook just underneath those two loops so for
the second row we’re gonna crochet around that starting yarn tail again but
we’re gonna pull on it before we start crocheting pull on it to close up that
gap now I’m going to start the second row I’m going to go through that first stitch I’m going to hold the starting yarn tail over my hook and I’m going to crochet around it now I’m going to pull on the starting yarn tail again now that starting yarn tail is locked in there and that’s not going to loosen up anymore so I hope you found you found that helpful guys I hope this video was helpful
I also hope the hook-less Slip knot at the beginning was helpful as well if it
was please give the video a thumbs up and we’ll see you super soon
