How to crochet a circle

If you’ve learned to crochet fairly recently, and have gotten pretty comfortable make squares and rectangles, you may be wondering how to crochet a circle. It’s a little bit different, but not too hard.

There is more than one way to start a crochet circle. It is usually best to follow the pattern you are using, but as long as your circle has a closed center, not a big open hole, you can use the following method, my personal favorite, an adjustable ring, also known as a magic ring or magic circle.

If you will be changing colors between rounds as you crochet this circle, be sure to check out my video tutorial for that.
