How to Join Crochet in the Round
There are three methods for joining crochet in the round presented in this video, 2 for crochet and 1 for knitting!
First, Amber shows you a common method often used when doing Amigurumi or other projects where you want a very small center hole.
Next Amber shows the standard method of joining in the round where the size of the hole doesn't need to be as small. This technique is just fine for hats, granny squares, circular motifs, doilies, etc..
Finally, Sandy demonstrates a technique that uses a crochet hook for starting to knit in the round. It's called the Emily Ocker's Circular Beginning as described in Elizabeth Zimmermann's Knitter's Almanac.
Small- used for Amigurumi
Large- standard circular crochet join for hats, bags, granny squares, etc...
Next, Sandy demonstrates Emily Ocker's Circular Beginning on as described in Elizabeth Zimmermann's Knitter's Almanac.
*Tip for Knitting with this method: If you are casting on stitches to knit, leave the stitches on the crochet hook each time you repeat and let them collect on the hook as you go. You can spread these out over several double point needles to begin knitting (as Sandy explains in the video.)
*It is also theoretically possible to start circular crochet this way too, just work single crochets instead of collecting the individual loops on the hook.
