This tutorial was shot and filmed using LB Collection Cotton Bamboo and an H hook.

Working the chainless starting double crochet in the round is simple enough, and if you’ve mastered the magic ring then it’s really just a matter of combining the two!

Start the Magic Circle as usual, then insert your hook under the outside loop, and grab the inside loop with the hook. Pull the inside loop just under the outside loop, and chain 1, snugging it down so it’s right at the surface of the magic ring.

Pull the active loop up to the height of a double crochet. Carefully remove the hook and replace it in the loop from the other direction, and spin it back to crocheting position, to put a twist in the loop.

    Is it possible to work with 2 strands, 1 jute and 1 yarn, and make this. I want to do the dc throughout like you have shown and make a coaster. I was not sure if the spacing would work with 2 strands.

      As long as you bump up the hook size as if you were using a thicker yarn (the total of those two strands) it should work great!
