        • SPECIAL STITCHES
        • Magic Ring: Leaving a 6" tail, form a loop in the yarn and hold it in the non-dominant hand with the working yarn over the index finger. Insert the hook into the loop (ring) and draw the working yarn through the loop to create a loop on the hook. Chain the appropriate number of chains for the first st in the first round, then work all first-round stitches into the ring, working each stitch over the yarn that forms the ring and the yarn tail together. When the last st of the first round is complete, pull the yarn tail gently to close the ring.
