Round crochet
hi...
i've been searching all tutorial and only found 1 about this and this is for double crochet, while i need for sc...

i also tried many ways to crochet round shape and still, i have this on my projects: a seen-starting-line...it's ugly...

i wonder how to do this round crochet...

here's the question:

after you slip stitch the single crochets in one magic loop to form all sc into a circle and then make 1 chain, where should i put in the crochet hook? right on the very first stitch (under the chain) or the next stitch of that very first stitch?

i also counted that everytime i made let's say 6 stitch, after i did slip stitch to make circle, seems like there were 7 stitch now...it's confusing...

last time i crocheted, i did this (it's only one of many ways i've tried):
i put in my hook on the very first stitch under the chain i made then do sc as usual; i passed like one stitch (that mysteri additional 1 stitch) when i was about to join sc with slip stitch...so the count is right but i hate when i see the line...

i hope you really understand what i mean...i'm desperate here...i thought i tried every ways but that beginning-line still appears...help...

thanks

What I've always done is slip stitch the circle closed, then chain one, and make my next stitch in the SECOND stitch of the circle. The chain one forms your first stitch of the next round.

here is a tutorial that has pictures and worded instructions. I think it's very good.

ah, i used to do this way too...i thought exactly the same of what you think but...the line is still seen on my projects...i'll try again this way...i think i made mistake on the last stitch right before slip stitch...

does your project show 'line'-like every beginning of round? it's quite seen...

thanks!

Is it absolutely essential that your project be worked in finished off rounds or can you just work in the round and continue spiraling instead of adding in that chain to get up to the next row? When i'm working on a project that requires the chain up, yet in the round... sometimes I'll try it both ways, seeing if working it continuously will work just as easily...

Since you're working in single crochets, it'll be easier to disguise the last stitch at the very end by just doing a slip stitch into the next one. There will be a little bit of a bump, but I'd take the bump over a very noticable line in my work anyday

The only way I've ever found (in almost 50 years of crocheting) to get rid of the line in round projects is to crochet in a spiral just like you knit in a spiral.

I mark the beginning of the round, crochet around adding increases just like the pattern calls for until I get around to the marker. The next stitch, the one in the stitch where the marker is, is the first stitch of the next round. It works whether you're crocheting flat or making a tube.

Can you share the pattern or a pic of a similar one? I could get a better idea of what you want to do.

the line i'm talking about is seen on the left side (if you can see the beginning of the yarn...)...it's not the 'small' line on the right side; it's the first chains line...that's not the problem...
