Mandela area rug where I'm going to show you some tricks on learning, how to do a Mandela, and I know what you're thinking this is just around circle idea. I want to teach you some tricks that you can know to make Mandela's in the future. A little bit easier for yourself, one of the major problems with doing a circle is that you can see a seam line when it comes to your joining every time. You come back around so when you're. Looking at from this perspective, you would see the seam line. Actually, making a semi half-moon kind of shape, as it goes, because the fact is is that crochet stitches don't actually sit right on top of each other. They always shift over a little bit.
So when people take photographs, especially me, is that what I do is that I take the photograph so that the seam line isn't so obvious, so it's kind of actually down here out of the way. So what I want to teach you today is called the invisible seam that, when you go to finish around is that we do an invisible seam to prevent that seam line from traveling. So what we're going to be doing today is that it's going to be a 12 point clock that we're going to be working on our sample, so every pie section is made up just like you see, so you draw the line down from the 12 to the Middle and the back go to the one o'clock position. You see a slice of pie so as we get bigger.
What happens is that we continue to grow out, but you will notice that any if you look carefully, is that at the increment point right here is where we start increasing their stitches in order to create the bend that creates the round circle. So in time. What happens is that? Because it's growing out - and this is our seam line - is that it's really truly never round there's a way to get it more round, but I'll tell you a little bit about that in a bit.
So what happens? Is that as you grow out, these areas get more flattened off and that the turn of the circle becomes at this particular point? So how do you avoid that? Let me tell you a little bit of about so knowing that circles actually increase and they increase around at the same point, if you change that increasing point to somewhere in the middle between the points, what happens is that you almost end up with a full true circle so, instead of actually travelling up the same seen line of adding your two stitches to create that bend and then crochet along and then add your two right at this point and carry on if you change your starting point to be at a midway point.
