Ultimate List of Round Crochet Patterns

How do you crochet a flat circle?

Learning how to crochet a flat circle in the round is not hard. I love this technique. It is one of the many benefits of crochet over knitting.

It is done by working a series of stitches into a chain or magic circle. Then, increases are gradually spaced out further and further between regular stitches.

For example, you might start by doing “single crochet, increase, single crochet” around.

Then, on the next round, “single crochet 2x, increase, single crochet 2x.” With each round, the increases are spaced farther apart, and the circle stays flat!

What can I make with a crocheted circle?

Oh, the possibilities are endless! When you make a crochet circle you can use it in many ways. Aside from standard circular projects like coasters and doilies, here are some more ideas:

  • Sew 2 circles together and add a handle to form a bag
  • Hang a pretty circle on the wall for decor
  • Sew smaller circles together to form a blanket
