Perfect Circle

Perfect Circle

Note: A single crochet (sc) circle will quickly have corners and 6 distinct sides. At row 12 we will start to correct this.

Connect each row with slip stitch in first sc, ch 1 to start next row. First st is immediately below ch 1.

Increase each row by 6 sc.

Row 1:

Chain (ch) 3. Sc in 2nd ch from hook. Sc 5 more in same stitch (st). = (6 sc)

Row 2:

2 sc in first st (increase) and each sc around = (12 sc)

Row 3:

(Increase (inc), sc in next sc) x 6 = (18 sc).

Row 4:

2sc, (inc, sc in each of next 2 sc) x 5 = (24 sc)

Row 5:

(Inc, 3 sc) x 6 = (30 sc)

Row 6:

3 sc, (inc, 4sc) x 5 = (36 sc)

Row 7:

(Inc, 5sc) x 6 = (42 sc)

Row 8:

4 sc, (inc, 6sc) x 5 = (48 sc)

Row 9:

(Inc, 7sc) x 6 = (54 sc)

Row 10:

5 sc, (inc, 8sc) x 5 = (60 sc)

Row 11:

(Inc, 9sc) x 6 = (66 sc)


Row 12:

3 sc, (inc, 10sc) x 5, inc, 7sc = (72sc) Note: 3sc in beginning + 7 sc at end = 10 sc

Row 13:

(Inc, 11sc) x 6 = (78 sc)

Row 14:

6 sc, (inc, 12sc) x 5, inc 6 sc = (84 sc)

Row 15:

(Inc, 13sc) x 6 = (90 sc)

Row 16:

9 sc, (inc, 14 sc) x 5, inc, 5 sc = (96 sc )

Row 17:

(Inc, 15 sc) x 6 = (102 sc)

Row 18:

2 sc, (inc, 16 sc) x 5, inc, 14 sc = (108 sc)

Row 19:

(Inc, 17 sc) x 6 = (114 sc)

Row 20:

7 sc (inc, 18 sc) x 5, inc, 11 sc = (120 sc)

Row 21:

(Inc, 19 sc) x 6 = (126 sc)

Row 22:

12 sc (inc, 20 sc) x 5, inc, 8 sc = (120 sc)

Row 23:

(Inc, 19 sc) x 6 = (126 sc)

Repeat Row 12 to Row 21 adding 6 to each row until circle is done. Ex: Row "12": 3 sc, (inc, 20sc) x 5, inc, 17sc = (132sc) Row "13": (Inc, 21sc) x 6 = (138 sc)

If you notice corners, change up beginning sc on even number rows. Ex: Row "12": 13 sc, (inc, 20sc) x 5, inc, 7sc = (132sc) Row "13": (Inc, 21sc) x 6 = (138 sc)
