One of the things that foxed both Rosie and I when we first started crocheting toys was the magic circle. We both watched videos, read instructions and struggled for ages.

As it happens, we both figured it out separately, and as a result both do it in a different way.

It still causes lots of people who come to our crochet lessons a bit of trouble to begin with, so don't worry if you're battling with it!

It's dead easy once you get the hang of it I promise, and totally worth persevering with as toys are just so much better using it.

I've made a short and very simple YouTube video to show you exactly how to do it.
