I am so so lost about how to make a granny square or a circle. Can you please help me? I will be very thankful.

I know of three different methods to start, two begin with a chain and the other one begins with a plastic ring, yarn loop (i.e magic circle.) Which method does your pattern use? :think:

Follow this link (http://craftside.typepad.com/.a/6a00e55007f593883401156f60805d970c-pi) to a drawing with instructions on how to begin crochet in the round.

Or

Follow this link (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WLuSVyKvoUg) to a video showing the magic circle method used to form a very tight ring and leaving no hole in the middle.

Granny square patterns usually begin with the chain method. Amigurumi patterns usually begin with the magic circle. :thumbsup:

Mary Grace, I apologize for not finding and linking to your video. Your page is on my list of top instructional video sources for crochet. :yay:

catlvr, I'm off to visit www.crochetcabana.com site you mentioned. I don't think I have them bookmarked yet. :oo:

Anyone know if mdkb901 (OP) found any of our responses helpful? :shrug:
