Crochet Invisible Joins for Mandalas

In crochet, after 30 years, I have come to accept that seamlines are a natural look to a project. It doesn’t mean I like it. I’m not OCD but my eyes jump to it directly on a project. Bugs me A LOT!

However, just because I have come to accept it, doesn’t mean there’s not a solution for it.

Anytime you are doing a full round of a project, you can use the Invisible Join Technique. It will take just a minute or two longer but those seam lines are gone!

Here’s a Circle Project where typical Slip Stitching Joins in the rounds are done.

Anytime I see this, I don’t look at the bat, just the darn seam line. MAKE IT STOP! (covers eyes)

The Solution

So there is a solution that is used in Mandalas called the Invisible Join. I know right. Where is it. A true experienced crochet will be able to see it. The stitch that is joined looks like a chain but is blended so perfectly. Seriously, no photo shop required!

The trick is not to finish the round with a slip stitch! It will require you to cut your yarn and finish the round with a darning needle! I’m sorry, but for me, I would rather cut my yarn than have a seam line! See how it’s done in the tutorial below.

Mikey, aka Michael Sellick, of The Crochet Crowd, started this online journey back in 2008. A mere hobby in trying to reach out to others as he was mentally struggling with his own issues. His goal was simple, find others in the yarn communities, like him, that have a common interest.

The journey and main baby of the whole idea started with a YouTube Channel and then in 2011, an official website was developed. Michael is not only the face of The Crochet Crowd but also the working engine behind the crowd in self-taught programming, social media and so much more.

Enjoy the stitching journey. Life is short, enjoy this wonderful hobby and all of the learning opportunities that come with it.
