How to make a magic loop for lefties
A magic loop, also called a magic ring, magic circle, adjustable ring, or adjustable loop, is the preferred way to start crocheting in the round. It’s considered magical because the result has no hole in the middle.
However, the magic loop can be tricky to master so if you’re having a lot of trouble with it, you can start a round piece with a chain instead.
