Crochet info

MAGIC CIRCLE: This technique is ideal if you want to avoid getting a hole at the beginning of the job. Hold the end of the thread and wrap the thread around your left index finger. Hold the loop with your left thumb and middle finger. Pull out the yarn and crochet 1 ch. Then crochet the desired number of dc around the yarn loop. Constrict the circle at the end.
CROP CIRCLE: After the last dc, continue with the second round and crochet 1 dc in every dc. Mark the beginning of the round and follow the marking of the work.
2 FM TOGETHER: * plunge into the next stitch and get the thread *, repeat from * - * once, make an envelope and pull through the 3 sts on the needle.
COLOR CHANGE: To make the color change beautiful, crochet the last st in the previous round as follows: plunge into the last st, fetch the thread, make an envelope with the new color, and pull the envelope through all sts.
