Crochet Tutorial on Crocheting in the Round

If you would prefer written instructions, then take a look at this tutorial with images below.

  1. Create your crochet magic ring and single crochet as many stitches as your pattern calls for. 

  2. Slip stitch into your first chain to create a circle. You are now going to want to work in a circular motion.

  3. Work your next row by crocheting whatever stitch you are using for your pattern all the way around. 

  4. When you reach the end of your row chain one, begin to crochet the next row like normal. When you get to the end of that row you are going to want to slip stitch in that chain one stitch you created. 

  5. Repeat steps 3-5 until you have completed your pattern.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I find these, supposedly SIMPLE, tips and tutorials so helpful. An ugly join running right through a piece can absolutely ruin it and that can be extremely disheartening for the person who has spent so many hours in making it. All the useful hints and tutorials I come across I save to a special Pinterest file which I refer to whenever I need to see exactly the right way to do something so that my time is not wasted on crocheting something that I will have to unpick and redo.
