The Mystery of the Magic Circle...Solved!

Many amigurumi patterns make use of what some call the "Magic Circle" or "Magic Ring".  The advantage of taking on this technique is that it will eliminate the hole that is left when beginning a piece of crochet in the round.

I published this free little tutorial in Ravelry 3 years ago and since then, it has been downloaded about 3500 times!  I had no idea until this evening when I went on the hunt for a copy of the PDF this.  For some reason, the raw photos and file for this tutorial have completely vanished from my computer/back up.

I hope the pictures show up reasonably well on this post.  Otherwise, feel free to head on over to Ravelry to download the original PDF :)

The Chinese Zodiac Amigurumi patterns I will be posting will look their best done with this technique.  You have a few more days to practice!
