Please excuse me for my bad English, I am French 😁 I am also a beginner in crochet!
The pattern asks me to begin by a magic ring of 6 double crochets. For my previous amigurumi, it was single crochets so I didn't had any troubles doing them. However, I didn't know how to do double crochets so I checked tutorials on Youtube and there is something I don't understand: why do every magic ring begins with 3 chains before starting doing the double crochets? Why don't they begin by doing the first double crochet then the second etc?
Also, I have to do 6 double crochets. Do these 3 chains count as 1 double crochet and then I should do 5 real double crochets?
Thank you very much for your help 🥲
Good evening everyone!
