How to Do a Crochet Slip Stitch

Learn how to do a slip stitch in crochet from Lion Brand Yarn's Andrea Lemire in this Howcast video.


Hey, I'm Andrea Lemire, the education coordinator here at the Lion Brand Yarn Studio. I'm going to show you some really cool techniques for beginning crochet, and hopefully, you'll have as much fun as I have with it. Okay, lets get started.

The slip stitch has a couple of uses in crochet. One use is when you're working on a flat piece. It's used to move yourself across a row without gaining any height. It's also used when you're crocheting in the round to join your rounds when you complete each one. So, I'm gonna show you how to do it. And I'll just show you in the middle of a row here. I'm going under the next stitch. I'm going to yarn over. And I'm going to pull that yarn through my stitch. But continue to pull it through the loop on my hook, all in one motion. So again, I'll show you in the next stage. I'm going in, yarn over the hook, pull it through my stitch and keep on pulling right through that working loop.

And that's the slip stitch.
