Welcome to Week Three of your Crochet for Beginners Course, you only have one more thing to learn before you round out the basic techniques.
This week we will add crocheting in the round into the mix, which means you can make granny squares - my personal favourite - and other signature motifs of the crochet world.
Starting in the Round: Chain StartLearn the technique
The simpliest way of starting in the round, by either working into one chain, or creating a circle of chains to work into.
Starting in the Round: Magic RingLearn the techinque
The magic ring is one of the best ways to start in the round, it gives you a tight centre, regardless of how many stitches.
With no added yarn overs, this stitch is typically used to connected the end of rounds, or for surface crochet.
