In order to crochet a cylinder, you will first need to create a foundation chain that is the desired length of your finished cylinder. Once you have your foundation chain, single crochet (sc) in each stitch across. When you reach the end of the row, turn your work so that you can continue crocheting along the other side of the foundation chain. Continue working sc stitches in each stitch until you have reached the desired height of your cylinder. Fasten off and weave in any loose ends. Your cylinder is now complete!

How to crochet a cylinder step-by-step
To make a cylinder, make a magic loop and then crochet 6 double or half double crochet. I’m using double crochet. Now slip stitch in the first double crochet.
Round two: chain two and make a double crochet in the same stitch, now make one more single crochet in the same stitch, this is the round of increase so we’ll be making increases in every stitch. By the end of the round, you’ll have 12 DC.
Round 3: Chain two and make an increase of double crochet in the same stitch. With the 2 chains make a DC, and the 3 chains make an increase. In this round, you’ll make an increase after each DC. By the end, you’ll have 18 DC.
The base is ready now all that’s left is the walls. To make the wall of this cylinder pull the loop a bit and turn your circle to the wrong side. Now insert the hook in the post of the stitch, pull up a loop, and make a slip stitch.
Insert the hook in the post of the next stitch, pull up a loop, and make a slip stitch up till the end of the round, then make a slip stitch in the first slip stitch.
This was the foundation for the walls, now, to make the walls once again pull the loop that’s in the hook and turn the circle to the right side. Chain two and insert the hook in the very first slip stitch you’ve made and make a double crochet.
Now you’ll keep on making double crochets in the slip stitches you’ve made up till the end of this round. Then, slip stitch in the first DC.
From here on you’ll make regular rounds of DC up till the desired height of the cylinder, starting with a chain two and ending with a slip stitch.
And this is how you’ll make a cylinder.
