When crocheting a circle you will start off with a chain ring and work in rounds; meaning around in a circle.
The chain ring can be any size but the smaller the chain ring the tighter the hole in the middle will be which is usually what you want.
Below is the video tutorial and written instructions for how to crochet a circle. To make sure that your crocheted circle comes out flat we will add stitches to the second and following rounds.
For Visual Learners crochet along with me in the How to Crochet a Circle Video Tutorial
Using a 4.0mm crochet hook with Medium Worsted Weight Yarn, ch 4, sl st in 1st ch made to form a ring. Work the first round over the tail end of yarn so you don’t have to weave it in later with a yarn needle.

Rnd 2: ch 3, *2 dc in next st, 1 dc in next st*, rep from * until the end; ending with 2 dc in last st, sl st in ch-3 of beg.
Rnd 3: ch 3, *1 dc in next st, 2 dc in next st*, rep from * until the end; ending with 2 dc in last st, sl st in ch-3 of beg.
To make your crochet circle larger then repeat round 2 and 3 as many times as you need to until you have the size circle you want.
Finish off and weave in your end yarn tail with a yarn needle.
