Part of the Back to Basics series. Uses double crochet increases to create a flat circle.
The formula is as follows: inc by 12 every row.
Note: sl st in the top of the beginning ch-3 at the end of each round. Alternate making the increase in the first dc every other round.
Round 1: Begin with 12 dc in ring. Round 2: increase in every dc. (24 dc) Round 3: increase every other dc.(1 dc between increases) (36 dc) Round 4: make 2 dc between increases. (48 dc) Round 5: make 3 dc between increases. (60 dc)
Continue increasing dc between increases until circle is desired size.
Please note that if you are making a really large circle, like a blanket for a round bed, after it gets so large, you have to increase more. I like to go by this rule: If you get to the number of rounds that you have stitches in the first round, (round 12) add one increase half-way between increases. Since round 12 is 10 between increases, make 5 sts between increases, and continue as before; with 6 on round 13, etc.
