Alternative To The Magic Ring
If you found this post because you’re having difficulty working the magic circle, I have 2 suggestions that may help.
1) DON’T GIVE UP! You can do it. I tell my girls all the time, “Practice makes perfect.”

work all your stitches in the second ch from the hook. Do not count the 1st ch you skipped as a stitch.

As far as the center of the circle….there isn’t much difference in the space it leaves, but it does make a slight difference in the size of the circle. Just make sure you check your gauge to make sure the rest of your project will work to the right size.
