How To Crochet A Circle

The farmhouse style coasters are created by joining the yarn in the round and using double crochet and single crochet.

The circle grows through a series of increases on every alternate round.

The pattern does involve counting and checking that you are reaching the stated number of stitches given.

Troubleshooting your circles

Sometimes things can go wrong when you are making your crochet flat circles, for example, if your circle starts to look ruffled.

This is what happens if you have too many stitches around the outside of your growing circle.

Sometimes if you start with the correct number of rounds, but increase into every stitch – you will soon see this ruffly effect.

  • If your circle shows signs of ruffling, try to pull out a few rounds until it looks flat and starts again – making sure that you increase only where it tells you to in the pattern.
  • If you complete rounds 1 and 2 correctly and then continue without increasing at all, the sides will start to curl up.
  • This is exactly what you want if you are making a bowl or basket — but you need to be in control of when it happens.
  • If your circle edges start to grow, try repeating the round you have just finished.
