How to crochet a single crochet (sc) US / double crochet (dc) UK in the round

In this DROPS video we show how crochet a single crochet (sc in US term) also known as a double crochet (dc in UK term) in the round.

When you are crocheting sc’s/dc’s in the round you begin each round with 1 ch that replaces the first sc/dc on this next round.
To mark the beginning it is a good idea to use a scrap yarn to mark the 1st stitch on the round.
Finish each round with 1 sl st in the chain from beg of round. Make sure to not work the sc that the ch was made in! Keep moving the marking thread for each round.
