Several of my patterns call for joined rounds instead of working in a spiral. This tutorial shows you how.
Currently i am making your claptrap amigurumi
But my seam is not straight and it is twisting its body. Is that normal? And is there a solution to this?
You can’t avoid that sadly.
i am having problems with the join round, i make the slip stitch, then i chain one, but i dont understand if from that loop i have in the hook i should yarn over again or do i insert the hook directly in to the stitch? sorry if it is escencial stuff, but i am a bit confused.. thx
Did you watch the tutorial for working in joined rounds on the tutorial page?
Do we need to chain 1 every time we finish a round and slip stitch~?
Yes. If you didn’t, your first stitch of every round would be stumpy and shorter than the others.
Hi, thank you for your tutorial. I understand how I have to slipstitch and chain one. But my seem is not a straight line, because my stitches are still a bit like a spiral, so does my seem… what do I do wrong? I slipstitch in the first stitch of the last round, I chain one and I single crochet in the same stitch as I slipstitched into.
I hope you can help me. Thank you.
It’s normal that it sort of twists a bit. The “stacked neatly one on top of the other” is relative. As long as it is just a bit of a turn you are doing it correctly. Often the visibility of the offset is greatly reduced when you stuff the piece.
Thanks a lot! This is so nice! I was having trouble with joined rounds! THXXX!
Does working in rounds vs spiral affect the look of your amigurumi creation?
Yes. Worked in the round tends to make rounded or spherical objects look more fluid whereas joined is more symmetrical and stitches are more inline. Whether or not that matters to you depends on what you are making and which you prefer.
I always come back to this video while doing joined rounds, thank you very much for these tutorials and patterns, you are the kindest I’m doing angry birds for my boyfriend for his birthday :3
