Easy Crochet Circle Pattern

1. Easy Flat Circle Shape

This flat circle shape is worked in a spiral, with no slip stitches joining your rounds together, and no chains between rounds. This sort of construction helps you to avoid ending up with a visible slanted line on your crocheted circle shape — which is one of those pesky pitfalls I mentioned above.

Easy Curved Crochet Circle Pattern

3. Easy Curved Crochet Circle Pattern

I can think of many possible reasons you might want to crochet a circle with a slight curve. This could become an essential component of many different types of creative crochet projects.

I originally designed this pattern because I thought it would be interesting to use two of these circles as part of a duffel-style purse — one on either side. When I put my first version of the purse together, I decided that these circles weren’t quite right for the style I had in mind, so I’m re-designing the bag to make it more in line with what I want.

However, I envision that these circles will be useful for many other projects. That experiment sparked several other ideas in my head for things to do with them — and I hope you’ll find uses for them, too, if you are so inclined.

There is, indeed, only one color per round in this design. Put your brain to work on that one for a minute — maybe you can figure out how that’s possible. 🙂 Or, skip the brain teaser and get yourself a copy of the pattern so you’ll be in on exactly what you would need to do to create this colorful pattern, while only working with one color at a time.


This motif is one component of an afghan you can crochet — or you can use the motif in other projects, as you please. If you’re looking for a colorful circle with interesting details, this is a great pattern to consider.
