Crocheting in the Round


Updated November 03, 2010
(2 Votes)


Crocheting in the round can be very easy to do as Michael would say. Crocheted afghans often use this technique as well as hats, so read what Michael has to say about it. Rounds are easy to make but you need to keep an eye on the pattern. It has to grow evenly... Too less of stitches will cause the circle to fold in like a bowl and too loose will cause the material to create ruffles. They are fine calculations when making rounds that are actually technically easy once you see the directions on the consistency of growth.

Pros & Cons

  • Rounds are fun but you can’t be distracted too much when completing them. You need to keep your eye on a pattern to ensure you aren’t doing the same counts as the row before it.
  • Useful to understand when doing tree skirts, hats, and round crochet pieces.

Well I started following a pattern to make a round rug, I followed it to the letter, still ended up with ruffles so decided to carry on with my own technique, which is double crochet then triple to complete and hopefully settle down the ruffles lol!!

It says Michael is going to demonstrate crocheting in the round but all he does is talk about the baby hat he has already made. Would love to see a video of how he did it.

could someone help me with flutter by butterfly dishcloth - first wing - after second round say to crochet in next 6 dc - where are they wanting me to go - around in circle or back to make 3 round thanks

'Too less of stitches' ??? 'Too few', I think you mean - or you could have just said 'not enough'... Great site, though.
