MAGIC CIRCLE:
When piece is worked in the round, start with this technique to avoid holes in the middle (instead of ch-ring): Hold the yarn end and wind the yarn one time around the index finger to make a loop. Hold the loop with left thumb and middle finger, place the yarn over left index finger. Insert hook through the loop, make a YO and pull yarn through loop, work ch 1, then work sc around the loop. When the desired no of sc have been reached, pull the yarn end to tighten the loop. Fasten the yarn end at the back.

CROCHET INFO:
Beg every round with 1 ch and finish with 1 sl st in first ch from beg of round.

COLOR CHANGE:
To get a nice transition between the color changes, work last sl st on round with the new color as follows: Insert hook in last ch from beg of round, make a YO with the new color and pull it through st on hook.
