DIY: perfect round crochet circle

EN

   Perfect round crochet circles. Even though I myself don't believe in perfect-perfect (nothing is perfect) but when I crochet a circle and I want a big circle it will take a shape of a hexagon ⬡. Argh! Recognizable?
But don't fret, I have the solution here down below in this blogpost, plus! I'm also showing how to do a seamless join too.

Perfecte ronde gehaakte cirkels. Perfectie bestaat natuurlijk niet (want niets is perfect) maar wanneer ik een cirkel haak, krijgt deze een vorm van een zeshoek. Argh! Herkenbaar nietwaar?
Maar geen nood ik heb de oplossing hieronder in deze blogpost, plus! Ik laat ook zien hoe je een toer ontzichtbaar kunt sluiten.

Crocheting a circle is one of the beginners move in the crochetworld I believe. It is also the basic technique of the crochet style `amigurumi`. Over the past years I`ve been making lots of crochet circles. The larger the circle gets the hexagon-ish it will be! The increase-single crochet is the cause for forming the pointiness because you`re increasing it right on top of each other in the following rows. To make the pointiness disappear you just simple need to shift the increase in the rows. Don`t worry you`ll still get the same amount of stitches as with the conventional circle. I`ve made a crochet diagram to show you how the circle turns into a hexagon shape.
Basically you just need to shift the increase to another stitch! I`ve made a pattern here just to make sure for you guys.
Row 1: magic loop + 6 single crochet (sc)
Row 2: 2x sc in each stitch (12 total)
Row 3: 1 sc in next stitch, 2x sc in the next - repeat 6 times (18)
Row 4: 2x sc in the next stitch, 1 sc in the next stitch, 1 sc in the next stitch - repeat 6 times (24)
Row 5: 1 sc in the next stitch, 1 sc in the next stitch, 2x sc in the next stitch, [1 sc in the next 3 stitches, 2x sc in the next stitch] - repeat (30)
Row 6: 1 sc in the next stitch, 2x sc in the next stitch, [1 sc in the next 4 stitches, 2x sc in the next stitch] - repeat (36)
Row 7: 1 sc in the next 5 stitches, 2x sc in the next stitch - repeat (42)
Row 8: 1 sc in the next stitch, 1 sc in the next stitch, 2x sc in the next stitch, [ 1 sc in the next 6 stitches, 2x sc in the next stitch] - repeat (48)
Row 9: 1 sc in the next 7 stitches, 2x sc in the next stitch - repeat (54)
Row 10: 1 sc in the next 3 stitches, 2x sc in the next stitch, [1 sc in the next 8 stitches, 2x sc in the next stitch] - repeat (60)
