Sorry if I'm being a hassle, but could you please do a quick video demonstrating this? I tried again, but it kept turning out awkwardly. Thank you so much!

No prob, I'll try to do one tomorrow and post it.  Which exact part is giving you trouble?  Are you getting started okay (getting round 1 finished)?  Just trying to figure out what would help the most. 

Also, keep in mind it won't turn out as a perfect circle - mine usually look more like octagons until I get to the first round of "Single Crochet around".

Here's a few sites with good video tutes for when you're stuck:

Horray, I've made two so far, but this is the first that I've uploaded a picture...

Excellent pattern for practicing and learning the magic ring method! Thanks for sharing such a fun project. =)

Such a cute little guy  Grin


teagreen - I'm so sorry, I cannot get the video to work right now  Cry
  I made up a little chart though, i hope it helps at least some:



the colors in the second rnd match the stitch they went through in the first rnd.  (I'm no artist, just trying to come up with a visual that might help!)

Feel free to PM me if I haven't explained it well enough.

I made my second one! First there was Oscar (the red one) and now he's got himself a girlfriend: Clotilde. She's a little bit kinky but Oscar says that is what he likes about her.
