Pi Topper Beginning You can use either 2 Circular Needles or double-pointed needles to knit in the round at small diameters.

To work in rounds, cast nine stitches on one end of the needle the same as you would on a straight needle. Check to make sure that the cast-on lays flat and smooth and is not twisted. Add a stitch marker to the end of the needle to mark the beginning of the round, and work the first round.

If you use double-pointed needles, please evenly distribute your cast-on over three or four needles, keeping one needle out to knit with. Make sure the cast-on lays flat and smooth and no stitches are twisted. If you'd like, add a stitch marker to the first needle to mark the beginning of the round. The needles either form a triangle (if you cast on to three needles) or a square (if you cast on to four needles).

For your information, I have provided the YouTube links below:

Please help - Lustrado Crocheted Pinwheel pattern Lustrado Crocheted Pinwheel was crocheted with fingering weight yarn and 3.0 mm crochet hook. We think the curly problem might be caused by different weight of yarn and the hook.

My co-worker, Flora crocheted a swatch with elann.com Sonata which is DK weight yarn. It curls a little bit, but it is flat after blocking. In her experience, if it starts to curl, you can add extra stitches around that row, and even more in the next row. In this pattern, she suggested that when you do v stitch, you could do 2 chain stitches (dc1, ch 2, dc1) instead of 1 chain stitch as the pattern calls.

If your project tends to get curly a lot, can you please send us a photo so that we can look into it, and might be able to give you other suggestions?

Please help - Lustrado Crocheted Pinwheel pattern I think blocking in the middle of your project won't be a problem. Personally, I like to try different things until I find what works for me. Please let me know how your project goes. If you have any question or problem, please let me know. I would be happy to assist you. Thank you!
