Crochet in spiral rounds

When you crochet in spiral rounds you do not turn or join the round. Use a stitch marker to mark the beginning of each round. Move the marker up each time you start a new round. Alternative for stitch marker: you can use different colored yarn for stitch markers too, just place it into the stitch of every row/round as you go.
