Pattern: Crocheted Flat Circle with Single Crochet
Skill Level: Beginner
- Worsted weight yarn in your desired color
- Appropriate crochet hook size for your chosen yarn (typically suggested on the yarn label)
- Yarn needle
- ch: chain
- sc: single crochet
- st(s): stitch(es)
- sl st: slip stitch
Round 1: Make a magic ring (adjustable ring) or ch 4 and join with a sl st to form a ring.
Round 2: Ch 1 (does not count as a stitch), work 6 sc into the ring. Join with a sl st to the first sc. (6 sts)
Round 3: Ch 1, 2 sc in each st around. Join. (12 sts)
Round 4: Ch 1, 1 sc in the next st, 2 sc in the next st repeat from * to * around. Join. (18 sts)
Round 5: Ch 1, 1 sc in each of the next 2 sts, 2 sc in the next st repeat from * to * around. Join. (24 sts)
Round 6: Ch 1, 1 sc in each of the next 3 sts, 2 sc in the next st repeat from * to * around. Join. (30 sts)
Continue in this pattern, increasing the number of single crochets between the increases (2 sc in the same stitch) in each round until your circle reaches the desired diameter.
Finishing: Fasten off your yarn and weave in any loose ends using a yarn needle.
Note: You can customize the size of your flat circle by continuing to increase the number of single crochets between the increases for as many rounds as needed. Remember to keep your tension consistent throughout to ensure an even and flat circle.
This pattern creates a basic flat circle using single crochet stitches. It’s a versatile building block that can be used for various crochet projects like coasters, appliqués, or even as a base for larger projects. Enjoy experimenting with different yarn colors and sizes to create unique pieces!
