Crocheting a circle is very similar to crochet a hexagon. Unlike the hexagon the increases for a crochet circle are offset each uneven round so that the final crochet piece has a more round appearance.

The crochet circle has many applications in all areas. For Amigurumis the circle is used as ears, eyes, faces, noses and is the base for the most important 3-dimensional shapes like spheres and tubes used as arms, bodys, heads and more.

The circle is also perfect to crochet easy and simple potholders and coasters. Crocheted with a bigger yarn and/or crochet hook you can crochet ponchos, hats, round blankets and more.

Circle Crochet Pattern

Needed Techniques

  • Magic Ring
  • Single Crochet Stitch (SC)
  • Increase

Needed Materials and Tools

Use a yarn and color of your choice and a suitable crochet hook. The here depicted circle was crocheted in spiral rounds using the “Schachenmayr Catania” yarn and a 2.5 mm crochet hook.

IMPORTANT: This crochet pattern is crocheted in spiral rounds, means, you keep crocheting without joining rounds unless said otherwise. Always work a marker of any kind in the first stitch of each new round, to know when a round begins and/or ends.

  1. Thank you so much for all of the “How To Patterns” they are really helping me out as far as writing my own patterns.
    I am taking Stacey Trocks of #Freshstiches classes and she is also helpful, so between the two of you I will be an Amigurumi designer sooner than I thought.. Have a GREAT weekend…

    • Great to hear all this helps you 🙂 There should be also sooner or later (i guess it will be later) more tutorials on how to write and create your own Amigurumis from scratch … whenever i got all the translation done. Have a nice weekend too and enjoy your road to become a great Amigurumi Designer! 😀
