If you are a beginner, you must learn the crocheting that will help you improve your mental health as well as give you something beneficial.
If you want to make a single crochet or a double crochet circle, this blog post will help you make a crochet circle as a beginner. Crocheting a plain circle seems like very straight-forward work, but it is quite tricky. If you get the one stitch count wrong, your circle crochet will be ruffled or cupped.
How to crochet a flat circle
The first thing is to select the right yarn and hook for the project. The type of yarn you use will affect the size of your circle crochet. Now that you have collected all the supplies, let’s start with the basics of making the crochet circle.
Understanding the basic pattern
To crochet a flat circle, you can start by creating the loop of chain stitches, or the magic ring, and make the first round of stitches into that ring. Each round you will take will increase the same number of stitches you have made in the magic ring; the number of stitches grows while crocheting.
How many stitches to start with?
When crocheting, the taller the stitches you do, the more stitches you need to make in the first round to keep the circle flat.
When doing single crochet, you must do 6 to 8 stitches in one round, 10 to 12 stitches for double crochet, and 8 to 10 stitches for half double crochet.
If your tension is very tight, you may need a larger number of stitches, and if your tension is loose, use a smaller number of stitches.
Single crochet stitches to form a circle crochet
You must start with making a slipknot and then the two chain stitches. Make the six single crochet stitches into the chain from the hook. Slip the stitch to join the round ends.
2 single crochet stitches in each stitch
In second round of the circle, you use two single crochet stitches per stitch you already made. This will give you a total of 12 single stitches for round two. Again, to join the ends, slip stitch to join the first stitch.
Pattern of single crochet stitches
Use two single crochet stitches for the next round, and then alternate between using one and two stitches. When making a crochet circle that started with six single crochet stitches, you will end the third round with 18 single crochet stitches.
Continue to make the circles
Continue making the circle to grow the circle crochet. For every round, add one single crochet stitch before doing two single crochet stitches. You can continue to make the fifth, sixth, and more rounds until you find that your crochet circle is big enough. When finishing the edge, slip stitch in each stitch all the way around.
Wrapping it up!
When thinking of doing crocheting the making of circle crochet is must that you should learn. You must be careful while doing the task, as if one stitch slips, it will make you start from scratch to make the flat circle. Once you learn this and practice regularly, you will enjoy doing such tasks.
