How to Crochet Granny Circle:
Making a crochet granny circle is pretty simple- we will be using basic stitches- the slip stitch, the half double crochet (hdc) and the double crochet (dc)
Round 1: Start by making a magic ring. Create a foundation chain of 4 stitches and then join with a slip stitch to the beginning to form a ring.
Next, chain 3- this counts as our first double crochet (or dc), dc into ring, chain 1. This forms our first cluster.
Then, *2dc, ch1* 5 times and then complete the circle with a slip stitch to the top of the initial chain 3. Cut the yarn and pull through.
Round 2: Change color. Join your next color of yarn with a slip stitch into any of the chain 1 spaces.
Now chain 3- this again counts as our first double crochet. *dc, ch 1, 2dc, ch1* into the same chain 1 space.
*2dc, ch1, 2dc, ch1* 5 times and then complete the circle with a slip stitch to the top of the initial chain 3. Cut the yarn and pull through.
Round 3: Join your next color of yarn with a slip stitch into any of the chain 1 spaces.
Now chain 3- this again counts as our first double crochet. *2dc, ch 1* into the same chain 1 space.
*3dc, ch1* 11 times and then complete the circle with a slip stitch to the top of the initial chain 3. Cut the yarn and pull through.
Round 4: This is the final round and creates a nice edging. We chain 2 this time, and then do a half double crochet into each of the double crochets in the previous row.
Next, we make two half double crochets into the chain 1 space below. And repeat this till the end. Join with a slip stitch. Cut the yarn and pull through.
And that’s it my granny circle is complete! Once you make one you will be tempted to make so many more! These Crochet Coasters are so pretty, colorful, and easy to make.
Let me know in the comments below if you like to crochet! I grew up watching my mom crochet the most beautiful things- blankets, pillows, dresses, and sweaters for me. While I could knit in my sleep, I am somewhat of a beginner crocheter. These crochet coasters were a simple project for me and since they are so small it was easy to port them around.
- I have 6 colors of yarn here, you really don’t need much yarn to make these. All of these yarn is leftover from my previous projects- the pink yarn from the rainbow blanket, the white, yellow and blue, green yarns are from this easy knit blanket and the grey one is this pale grey color by Vanna’s Choice.
- I am using a no H 5mm hook. I recently splurged and bought myself an ergonomic hook set and I love it!
- I have everything I need stored in this cute little transparent zipper pouch here. I love adding tiny hair clips to each yarn ball to prevent them all from tangling up! And this pouch is awesome, it fits in my bag and I can take it with me to the girls’ classes
