I am working on a project and was wondering if anyone could pipe in with some tips about working in the round AND TURNING...

The stitch pattern im using needs to be turned but im wanting to work this in the round. I can join and turn, but its very obvious where the begining of the round is... anyone have any sneeky ways of concealing this join and turn?

Thanks
Melissa

Edit...I found this vid (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r5gkHQ22M4M&feature=related). This is exactly what im trying to do in case I didnt explain it clearly. But her seams are still very visable...I suppose im sol...But I would like to hear what yall have to say...

HI Melissa,

I find that after I join a round, if I slip stitch over the tops of a few of the single crochets (or double, or whatever stitch you're using), and start your next round, you won't have a noticeable seam. I use this method when making granny squares. When I come to the part where I have to join, I go ahead and join, and then slip stitch over a few, and then begin my next row there. Hope this helps!

The round consists of.. (sc, ch1, dc,) in the same sc, sk 2, repeat. on both sides...I stumbled my way thro and it looks ok. Wound up sl into the begining sc and doin that video's method of turning... I looked at it after a few rows were done and "I" can tell its there but i gave it to my friend to look and didnt tell her which side the join was on, and she couldnt find it.....so i guess i found my method.

Thank you anyway...Its a pretty clutch after I got it done and Im happy with it...Ill post pics if you want, so you can see what im talking about.

I am guessing that it was to alternate the leaning direction of the DC sts. One could do that by reversing the st order on even rounds: (DC, ch1, SC in same SC stitch sk2) repeat around.

Yes, please add pictures. I'd like to see the patten. :)

Been there. Done that. Didnt work.

As you will see in this picture, the stitch pattern thrives on showing the front and back alteratively.

Here is the reason for my having less hair....I guess if someone that dont crochet cant see it....im good. But its the whole "it sticks out like a sore thumb to me" thing.

There is no pattern(yet) I just picked up my hook and yarn and started to crochet the picture i had in my mind....I think it turned out ok.

I think you thought correctly, almost. I wouldn't use "ok", but rather I say it turned out very good. ;)

Darling! Love the stitches you used and the colors! Perhaps using a button with a smooth edge would make the closure work better.
