    To make your circle bigger, each round simply add a dc in an extra stitch. so the next round 5 would be dc in next 3 sts, round 6 would be dc in next 4 sts etc. Each round's stitch counts will increase by 12 sts.

    For a seamless look as in the circle shown on the right, investigate the alternative to a st ch - the false dc and the invisible join to finish with. Google and YouTube can help.
