Magic Sliding Loop Ring.. {a re-do}

I've been making a lot of circular motifs, and finding the sliding ring/magic loop technique has become my favourite method to start in the round. Not being happy with the photos I posted last time (I over did the saturation) I decided to have a re-do. 


Step 1: wind yarn around finger, with end away from you. Don't have it too tight, as you need to fit the hook under (step 2)


Step 3: bring yarn through both loops


Step 4: remove from finger


Step 5: chain (I'm using US dc, so 3 chains. US tr would require 4 etc)


Step 6: complete 1st row (my pattern is for 23dc + 3ch for 24 stitches)



Slip Stitch into top of chain row and you are ready to start 2nd row.

I have been hearing about this magical mirror for long and i have been searching for a way to get it but to no avail all my efforts seemed to be in vain but my cousin's friend told me how she ordered for the magical mirror from Dada Magical a powerful man from Africa and how she used it and how she became blessed. At first i thought it was a joke but i decided to order for it by contacting Magicalmirrorofgoodness@yahoo.com and i got it. To my greatest surprise, the mirror was even better than what i expected. The magical mirror is really a good one and it worked and it is still with me and it is still working. The magical mirror is HARMLESS and it is not scaring. it tells me what to do and what not to do, it reveals deep secret to me, it protect me and it tells me who is against me and who is my true friend. It suggest good ideas for me and it has made me rich too and in fact the magical mirror is a solution because is provide and can tell you solution to your problems.

This is real and you can get it and see for your self so if you need the magical mirror don't hesitate to get it and you can get it by contacting Magicalmirrorofgoodness@yahoo.com
