Today I am sharing a slip stitch tutorial for the beginner. The slip stitch is the shortest of the crochet stitches and is used in many patterns. Because of its height it is almost invisible and is used to get from one spot to another without being noticed. In most patterns when you change colors you use this stitch to join a new color. It also make a very nice edging to any project. The abbreviation for the slip stitch is “sl st”. If you need a crochet abbreviations chart check out this POST

How To Create Slip Stitch
Crochet 11 chain stitches. Insert hook into the 2nd chain from the hook. (reference image A-1 & A-2)
Yarn over and pull yarn thru loop of the chain and the loop on the hook (reference image A-3)
One slip stitch created (reference image A-4).
Repeat instructions across in every chain stitch. (reference image A-5)
If you need to practice a lot on this stitch just create how many beginning chains you think you need to get this stitch down. Check out my video tutorial here
