*Magic ring:
Holding yarn between thumb and first 2 fingers on left hand, wrap yarn around first 2 fingers so yarn falls to the back and furthest away from you, insert hook between these 2 fingers and under the top strand, grab second hanging strand next to it with your hook and pull yarn through the loop. Make a chain with this and begin the pattern, working in the circle around tail of yarn.  For closing, untwist the tail from the loop, join before pulling tightly closed, pull gently but firmly, closing slack in the center circle.

Try different yarns and hooks for different sizes and feels. Original pattern uses size L hook giving the finished project a softer feel with the loosely crocheted stitches. The smaller your hook, the stiffer and smaller your finished project will be. 

Please, email and let me know if you have any questions, would like to share your finished doily, or for any other reason.  

Happy crocheting!
