Crochet Circle Join, Invisible Join for Tapestry Crochet, Amigurumi - Crochet Freeform

Crochet Circle Join, Invisible Join for Tapestry Crochet, Amigurumi The Circle Join is easiest done with Clover Crochet Hooks https://amzn.to/2K7k4QZ because of their slightly larger, padded handles and super glide shaft. The Crochet Circle Join (also called the Invisible Join) is used to close the gap between rows when crocheting in the round. It makes for a more professional look when doing Amigurumi, Tapestry Crochet Design Work, creating colorwork designs on hats, socks, or anything that you create in the round. I learned how to do this in 1970 (as a freshman in highschool). One of the ‘clubs’ that was held after school was a Crochet Club. During the first club meeting they were teaching how to make School Color Themed Socks (here’s to the the green and gold). My first club project to make a pair of socks (and we each got a nifty patch to put on our socks too). A while later, when I learned Tapestry Crochet (and back loop design work) I truly fell in love with the Crochet Circle Join. Back loop Tapestry Crochet wasn’t very popular than, and I have to thank the second club I belonged to for teaching this skill to me when no books were really showing it. I was told that the technique could be traced back to the roaring 20s and the cloche hats. I never looked up, but it’s nice to think that it has history. ** SHOW NOTES & RESOURCES ** 1. The Crochet Hook I used during the video was a D 3.25 mm, Clover Crochet Hook.
