How to crochet a flat circle or a round?

Crochet a flat round or a circle have many uses - crochet a hat, amigurumi, coasters, dish washing cloth, face scrub, just to name a few, and other things that need to begin in a circle shape.

How to keep your circle flat?

The trick is to increase the right amount of stitches!

If your first (ring/round) has 6 stitches, then your second round should increase by 6 stitches. Total of 12 stitches.

Remember: For your work to lie flat, the number of stitches should increase in each round by 6.

So, 6, 12, 18, 24 etc.

Basic Pattern:

Foundation Chain: Ch 3 and close into ring with sl in first ch.

Round 1: Ch 1, work 6 sc into ring (6sc).

Round 2: Work 2 sc in each sc around (12sc).

Round 3: * sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc * repeat * to * 6 times (18sc).

Round 4: * sc in next 2 sc, 2 sc in next 2 sc * repeat from * to * 6 times (24sc).

Round 5: * sc in next 3 sc, 2 sc in next 2 sc * repeat from * to * 6 times (30sc).
