Worked in Rounds-

Dear Crochet lovers…

Today, I am gonna share how to crochet geometric shapes, worked in rounds. This is an alternative to working in rows. When we make our basics perfect then its easy and fun to experiment. So I insist to master these techniques. With this crocheting method, we can make flat geometries or 3 dimensional objects like bowls or even tubes. This is very easy way to get desired shape.

For whatever shape, we have to start with a ring (refer this post to learn methods of ring) and is then developed in either concentric or spiral rounds. The fun to work this way is that we always work from the right side so one can enjoy the progress.

I remember when I first learnt to crochet shapes this way; I had made 18 shapes in one day, right from circle, square, rectangle, pentagon, hexagon, octagon etc…. 🙂 It was fun doing that…

Concentric Rounds: For concentric shaping, each round is started with a chain, which substitutes for the first stitch, and ended with a slip stitch into that starting chain; thus completing one round. So as the work progresses you see number of concentric rounds around the first ring. This method is used to make geometric shapes and patchwork motifs.

Angles on such motifs are formed with increases of either two, three or four stitches placed directly above one another.

Spiral Rounds: In spiral shaping, each round continues out of the previous one, with no starting chain or closing stitch. For this method, we need to place a marker at the end of Round 1, then move it up with each new round to keep track of the rounds completed.

TIP: For smooth shaping, the position of increases or decreases is usually moved forward by one stitch on each round.

This method is used to make hats, wrist warmers, or especially the projects which require tube like progression.

You can further learn how to crochet Circle, Square and Polygon.

Happy Crocheting!
