Magic Ring

A magic ring or adjustable loop is another way of starting up a circular or spiral crochet. It allows the hole at the centre of a project to be fully closed or adjusted by pulling the free end of the yarn. The spiral crochet allows the surface of a project to increase seamlessly and is typically used for making amigurumi.
