If you’ve been crocheting for any amount of time, you’ll know all too well the misery of joining in the round. It’s fine if you’re working all in the same color, but for those projects that require multiple colors, like mandalas, you’ll notice the joining seam creeping diagonally across the project.

You might not notice at first, but if you’re anything like me, once you see it, you can’t unsee it. Most crocheters are most critical of their own work, and we are nothing if not perfectionists!

That’s why I’m so excited to be able to share this awesome crochet hack video with you today! Mikey from The Crochet crowd shows us how to join rounds with an invisible seam. Usually, when crocheting in the round, you finish each round with a slip stitch into the first stitch. However, since crochet stitches don’t quite sit on top of each other, this slip stitch moves with each round.

To fix this, Mikey shows us how to pull the yarn through the top of the last stitch, and weave it back into the first stitch creating a faux stitch of sorts to even things out. You’ll be amazed at how much better this makes your projects look! Go ahead and see how it’s done in the video below!
