The magic ring is a very useful technique for starting projects in the round.
Usually, when working in the round, one might start out by chaining 4 and joining with a slip stitch to the first chain made. Then, you’d work your first round in the loop that was created with the chain stitches. When doing this you are left with a little hole at the center of your project.
Instead, if you use the magic ring, you can get rid of that little hole at the center. This method gives it a more professional finish and is so much faster than the chain 4 method.
