This is much too long in the book for me to type it this morning. Plus I just got my coffee . Anywho, I use this technique ALOT. It's really good for granny squares and hats.

Crocheting in the round

There are two forms of crocheting in rounds. One forms a tube, such as working in rounds to make leg warmers. The second forms a flat circular surface such as a doily or tablemat.
Both start with a foundation chain, which is joined with a slip stitch. To create a tube, work the required stitches into the foundation chain. When the first round is worked, immediately go into the second round. To count rounds, place a marker at the end of the first round.
To create a flat circular surface, make a circle by joining the foundation chain with a slip stitch. The first round of stitches goes directly into the space in the center of the ring. In the next rounds, stitches are worked under the top loops of each stitch in the usual way. To achieve a flat surface, increase stitches according to the pattern instructions.
