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?

Follow this link to a drawing with instructions on how to begin crochet in the round.

Or

Follow this link 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.

knittergirl16, The video link I included in my post above yours was to Teresa's (tjw1963) Granny square video.

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.

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

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