Simply Delicious Crochet Circles


Crocheting a circle is easier than you think. For beginners it might seem a little difficult but really it’s just a matter joining stitches or crocheting in a spiral. With circles you can make hats, bolero’s, rugs, amigurumi, and coasters. Here is a simple delicious circle pattern that can be used as play food or as coasters. If you make them as coasters just make 1 pancake and don’t stuff with fiber fill.

Small amounts 4 ply worsted weight yarn (tan, cream, white, yellow)
