The very first thing I decided to crochet was a hat. A simple beanie worked from the top down. Mind you, I made this hat long before Pinterest, Facebook, and Instagram existed. So, Accessing quick crochet tips, or suggestions from other crocheters didn’t exist. So, as I crocheted round after round after round, I saw the dreaded slanted line where I joined each round together. Dun, Dun, DUN! Therefore, I’m sharing a Technique Tutorial // No Cut Join Method to avoid that pesky slanted line.

This tutorial will come in handy. Be sure to save it to your favorite Pinterest board!

No Cut Join Method

The No Cut Join Method is used when crocheting rounds in a project such as, a hat, cowl, or infinity scarf. However, don’t confuse it with “crocheting in the round” when you do not join the round together.

First, come to the end of the round, and pull up a long loop on your hook.

Next, remove the hook from the loop, and insert it from back to front in the first stitch of the round.
