Welcome, fellow crochet enthusiasts! I’m excited to share with you my best round crochet patterns.
Round crochet patterns have always held a special place in my heart. Their symmetry and versatility make them super easy to design and I have discovered that these are popular among other crocheters also.
I am eager to share with you the best 30-plus round crochet patterns, most of which I have personally made and cherished during my crochet journey.
Tips and Tricks for Round Crochet Patterns
Most of the round crochet patterns in this article are beginner friendly. This means they are basically a repeat of the basic round and use the basic crochet stitches. Mastering round crochet patterns does not happen overnight. But you can improve your skills significantly with a few tried and tested techniques I have picked over the years.
- Understanding and mastering the magic ring: The magic ring or circle is a crucial starting point for many round crochet projects. It helps in creating a tightly closed center, which is especially important for patterns like doilies and hats. If you find making the magic ring tricky, you could substitute it by chaining 4, and work the indicated number of stitches into the 4th chain.
- Techniques for maintaining circular shape: Keeping a perfectly round shape can be tricky. It’s important to increase the stitches uniformly in each round. Remember that the number of stitches in each round should increase proportionally to the number of the round you are working on.
- Changing colors and yarns seamlessly: If you are working with multiple colors, try carrying the yarn inside your project rather than cutting it each time. This makes the color change seamless and saves you from weaving in ends.
How To Crochet A Flat Circle?
Crocheting a flat circle involves increasing stitches uniformly in each round. Creating a flat circle can be made using any of the crochet stitches.
You need to gradually increase the stitches by the same number in each round. Once you stop increasing, your flat circle starts curling up!
Projects that can be made with a crocheted circle
You can absolutely crochet any project with a crochet circle. Here are a few projects, in rounds. Doilies, Coaters, Blankets, Mandelas, Placemats, Dreamcatchers, Cushion covers, Appliques, and Crochet Accessories like Earrings, bags, cowls, and Garments. Let your imagination take the lead!
