Crocheting a flat circle seems pretty straightforward: crochet in rounds, throw in some increases, and you've got a circle. Except, you probably don't have a circle — you probably have something a little misshapen. The good news is, this problem is fixable. If you follow a couple rules, you can have perfect circles every time. Your first round really sets the stage for success, so make sure you've got the right number of stitches from the get go. Too many stitches and you make waves; too few and you have a bowl.
Ravelry: Granny Mandala pattern by Crochet with Raymond
I love granny circles and always have a couple in use! I have made three different stool covers in different colours and patterns and I change them according to how I feel or the season! I have also made a couple of small table toppers. I put them on top of a full length cloth on a small round table. I use smaller circles to put a mug on and slightly bigger ones for vases! Thanks for telling us how to increase the size harmoniously! I love the idea of a stool cover, I have seen a few on Pinterest and they look fabulous

When Autumn comes around, my mind turns to one thing - blankets. Mmmmm, blankets I have a lot of blankets, of all sorts, but I am firm in the belief that no household could ever have too many. One type of blanket that is as relaxing and pleasurable to make as it is to snuggle, is a crochet granny square blanket. The beauty of granny square blankets is that they can be as big or little, simple or complex, plain or colourful as you like.
