When you watch this episode of B.Hooked you’ll learn about the 6, 8, 10 rule I use for increases and decreases when I increase and decrease in the round.

Simplify your “in the round” projects by following the same general system no matter what type of round project you make.

Crocheting a circle that’s flat and even requires a system – a mathematical system but it’s not as complicated as you might think. By evenly spacing increases and decreases as you crochet the circle, it will continue to grow and lay flat.

So what system, you might ask? Well we start the circle in the same way (regardless of the project); by following a stitch count for the first round based on the stitch that’s being used. The second row is to increase in every stitch which will double the stitch count. And each round after that will increase by the same number of stitches you started with in the first round.

To evenly space the increases every round, the number of stitches between them will increase by one every round.
