Strive for achievement: It teaches the little ones to pursue a goal, which is a fundamental aspect of life and also shows that the way to achieve a goal can be an entertaining and fun task.

Step by step crochet magic circle
We begin by wrapping the strip in the palm of the hand so that the end of it is below.
We take the back strip with the needle and take it out through the central hole.
Then we make a loop and pass it through the hole in the stitch.
Thus we obtain the initial knot, but this knot does not count as a point or chain.
We press a little to adjust and continue bringing the needle to the center of the circle.
Then we take the thread from the back with the needle and bring it to the front needle to the center of the circle.
We take the back strip, we bring it to the front.
We make a loop and close the point by passing the strip through the hole in the previous point.
We continue making the number of points we want.
Then it only remains to pull the minor thread very hard to form the magic ring.
For the next round, we begin to knit in the first point of the ring unless the pattern indicates to close it.
Then, we close the circle with a slip stitch.

You should now have four loops on the needle.
Make another loop over the needle and pass it through two of the four stitches you have on the needle from the previous step.
