The not magic ring

The question is how do you start off when making amigurumi?

When I first wanted to learn I found a lot of articles online which said that to start off you need to use a magic ring. I read these articles and watched a few videos and tried to make a magic ring - but I just couldn't get it to work. And then somewhere I came across something which explained a different way of starting off. That way works perfectly for me so I'll share it here with you.

How to make your first round of amigurumi:
a) make a slip knot on your crochet hook
b) chain 2
c) single crochet into your first chain
d) single crochet 5 more times into your first chain and you have your first round of 6 stitches!

I start off mine with the magic circle/ring. :)

I don't know why but I just couldn't get the hang of it! maybe I could now that I've been crocheting for a year, but this method works for me :)
