CROCHET INFO:
MAGIC CIRCLE:
When piece is worked in the round, start with this technique to avoid hole 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, 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 on the back side. Continue to work in the round in a circle.

WORK IN THE ROUND IN A CIRCLE:
After last sc on the round, continue to next round with 1 sc in next sc (= first sc on next round). NOTE: Insert a marker at the beg of round between last sc and first sc on the round, move the marker upwards.

WORKING 2 SC TOG:
* Insert hook in next st, get yarn *, repeat from *-* one more time, make a YO and pull yarn through all 3 sts on hook.

COLOR CHANGE - SC:
To get a nice color change work last sc on round as follows: Insert hook in last st, get yarn , make a YO with the new color and pull it through all sts on hook. Continue on to next round with the new color.
