Here is a quick tip on how to create a virtually hidden seam on crochet hats! If you struggle with uneven seams or gaping holes in the back of your hat, you will want to try this technique. It works by skipping over your chain stitches at the begging of the round, joining to your first stitch made, and then starting your next round in the same stitch as your chains stitches. This allows the chains to become “filler” stitches and keeps your seam from having large holes like in the orange hat below. This technique does work best with double crochet stitches but can be applied to any other types of stitches your pattern calls for.
