Abstract: In this paper the following result is established: a Jordan curve $ \Gamma $ in the extended plane $ {\mathbf{\bar C}}$ is a quasicircle if and only if there is a $ K,1 \leq K < \infty $, such that, given ordered triples $ {z_1},{z_2},{z_3}$ and $ {w_1},{w_2},{w_3}$ of points on $ \Gamma $, there exists a $ K$-quasiconformal mapping $ h$ of $ {\mathbf{\bar C}}$ onto itself with $ h(\Gamma ) = \Gamma $ and $ h({z_j}) = {w_j}$ for $ j = 1,2,3$.
