I have been crocheting for many years but still have not found the secret of crocheting in the round without the beginning of the round being obvious. Can someone help me with this?

You can either knit in a spiral or you can sl st to join then do a sc (w/o the chain)....otherwise, I don't know..

I usually go in a spiral, then at the top I do a couple stitches in each smaller size stitch until I am down to slip stitches (to taper the stairstep at the top).

If I'm changing colors every round or frequently and don't want the "step" to show, I'll finish in one color, slip stitching into 2 or 3 st to taper the 'step. Then the first stitch of the next round in the new color I will work "with joining" sorta kinda. I just put a slip knit loop on the hook and then commence to working the next round in sc or dc without "joining" the new yarn to the old. It makes the new round a whole step up and eliminates that irritating jog step.

Thanks for your help everyone. I frogged the hat I had just finished because I was so unhappy with the appearance of the 'step.' I ended up crocheting in a spiral, from the top down, and am a much happier crocheter.
