Sewing an invisible join makes your crochet rounds look seamless. Learn how to do it quickly, easy, and perfect with this tutorial which has a video included.
Crocheters either crochet in rows or in rounds. But we all want the sides and the seams to look amazing. Well, most of the time, crocheters use slip stitches to connect the first and last stitch in a round. But it doesn’t look pretty, especially during color changes.
But there are a few tricks you can use to make seams in rounds look prettier and look seamless.
Can every round have an invisible seam without cutting yarn?
Not all rounds. But there are a few things you can do to make it easier and overall look seamless.
There are 6 things to use for invisible join:
- Alternative Turning Chain
- Straight Seam for sc, dc, and taller stitches
- Straight Seam for hdc
- Hidden Slip Stitch – joining without cutting yarn
- Use the Invisible Single Crochet Decrease technique for decreasing
- Invisible Join – cutting yarn – for the end of a color or project
The Alternative Turning Chain is super important to start the rounds off looking neater, especially when crocheting rounds with stitches that are the height of a double crochet or taller. For any stitches smaller than that, use this crochet trick to get smooth edges.
Once you understand, how to crochet flat circles which are crocheted in rounds, you then want to understand how to crochet straight seams for any stitch.
When crocheting rounds, it’s best to either crochet continuous rounds (you will need stitch markers for that) or use the hidden slip stitch to hide the seam as best as possible.
Then you are ready to use the invisible join to finish your rounds of a project or when you need to change colors to make it look like you finished the round crocheted, but it was actually not. Let me show you how the invisible join works.

Why do I need to use the invisible join for seamless rounds?
You don’t need to use this technique, but it will for sure make your crochet projects look more complete, put together and simply look amazing.
Grab your favorite yarn (I used Brava Yarn from WeCrochet) and hooks (I used Furls Crochet Hook size 4.0mm) and let’s crochet together, shall we? Above you have the video tutorials which are more detailed. But let me show you a written tutorial for this.
Written Tutorial for the Invisible Join
Simply cut your yarn after the last round and do not slip stitch. But rather attach your tapestry needle and sew from the back to the front under the first stitch of the round.
Next, insert your tapestry needle from the front to the back underneath the back loop only of the last stitch of the round.
Pull gently and then weave in your ends. Now you have sewn an invisible join which looks like a crochet stitch from every angle.
