Crochet tips: the best way to join when crocheting in the roundfeatured

Finally here is the second “crochet tips” post. 🙂 I am too slow, I know.

So, what is the best way to join when crocheting in rounds?

* It is very important to join always in the same stitch. For example, if you are working rounds of sc (single crochet) the best way is to join always in ch-1. Then the joint line will look like this:

What is very important that in this case it will not “move”, as it would do if you would join in first sc.

*If you are working rounds of dc (double crochet), join always in 3rd ch of ch-3 and your joint like will look like this:

* If you are following the pattern always take care where it says to join. It is much more important than you think. It can totally change the result if you are not joining where you should.

There are also some tricky ways how to join the rounds, for example this one!

Next post will be about FP dc (front post double crochet) and BP dc (back post double crochet). And there will be a small surprise! 🙂
